If have a pond on your personal or business property, you will no doubt want to keep it looking as good as possible. Even if the pond was put in to control storm water runoff, you want it to look good even though that was not you reason for having it build.
Water that just sits in a pond or other holding place will begin to get stagnant. This will have a negative effect on the appearance as well as causing it to give of a bad odor. As it begins to look green and slimy it will also become breeding grounds for mosquitos and other insects. Consequently, there can be come health risks associated with the presence of the pond.
Fortunately, there are companies like Atlanta Aquatics that can help with things like an aeration service Marietta Ga. Aeration will keep the water oxygenated. This will, in turn, keep down the growth of some of the things that make the water turn green and become filled with slime. The end result is a pond that is functional and adds to the beauty of the property rather than becoming an eyesore.
When aerating the water, it is sometimes a good idea to do it in a way that the aeration activity itself adds to the décor. Having a fountain that sprays water into the air from the center of the pond lends itself to the peaceful feelings that are often associated with flowing water. The looks will be such that the functional aspect of keeping the water oxygenated is almost secondary, at least in people’s minds.
If you want to go one step further in improving the appearance and water quality of your pond, you might want to consider a floating fountain. This will provide some advantages in that the fountain will eventually float over the entire surface of the pond and do a better job of keeping all the water oxygenated. There will not be concentrated pockets in which the water continues to become stagnant. Floating fountains can provide some aesthetic benefits as well. Whenever people look at the water, they will get a different view each day because the location of the water spraying from the fountain will vary.
Whenever you have a pond, you should look at both its function and the aesthetic benefits it provides. Proper aeration will contribute greatly to both.
