Aeration Systems

We offer several different types of aerators for ponds. Here is a brief explanation of each style of aerator, which will hopefully help you to select just the right unit for your pond or lake:
 

diffused pond aeration system

Diffused Aeration Systems

The most popular type of aeration and the most effective for ponds that or 6' or deeper, runs on electricity and aerates from the bottom of your pond up. These systems are efficient at aerating small ponds and also make the most cost efficient and most effective large pond aerators as well. 

lake aerators

Deluxe Aeration Systems

Deluxe pond aeration systems are the same as the diffused aeration system, however they also include a locking customized cabinet and a cooling fan. The air compressor is already installed in the system and it already has a valve outlet assembly, a pressure relief valve and a gauge installed. Since the electrical outlet is mounted ready for the incoming power line, it is easy to set up, simply set near your power source, set up the air diffuser and then connect all the tubing and you're ready to go.
 
koi pond aerators

Garden Pond Aerators 

 This what we could small pond aerators or ornamental aerators. For very small ponds, such as ornamental, hobbyist or small koi fish ponds.
 
windmill aerators

Windmill Aeration Kits


Also a diffused type of aeration, however they require no electricity and run completely on wind power. Excellent choice for remote pond locations that have no access to a power source. Also these units will practically pay for themelves by saving your money on your monthly electric bill.
 
shallow pond aerator

Shallow Pond Aerators 

Shallow aerators are useful for shallow ponds that are less than 7' deep. These aerators are more energy efficient than aerators for deeper or bigger ponds or water features, with incredibly quiet operation. The aerators will provide you with years of efficient service with a long lasting, oil free design. All the parts are weather resistant so can be used outdoors, and the kit comes with everything you will need to set up your shallow aerator, including 50' weighted tubing. Deeper ponds, of more than 7' deep would need one of our airpro diffused aeration systems to service the entire pond.
 
pond aerator solar

Solar Powered Aerators 

These diffused aeration systems run on 100% solar power. These solar powered systems are amazing, they can actually run for 3 days with no sunlight. Don't be fooled by lower priced cheap solar aerators, these systems are the "real deal".
 
surface pond aerator

High Oxygen Surface Aerators 

The best way to aerate shallow ponds that are 5' deep or less. Moves an enormous amount of water quickly adding an abundance of oxygen to your pond. These units are always the best choice in shallow ponds.
 
kasco aerators

Kasco Aeration 

Kasco is a name that has been well known in the industry for decades. We are happy to offer their complete line of aeration products. They put out quality products for both surface and diffused aeration.

Keep your pond or lake healthy and clean with an aeration system from Living Water Aeration. We have a variety of styles to choose from including garden varieties, windmill aeration kits, solar powered aeration systems, diffused aeration, high-oxygen surface aerators and quiet-line styles.
 
The exact size and style you need will depend on your particular setup, but there are some aquatic, eco-friendly options that work well for most water features including a windmill aerator, as well as solar aerators. Windmill pond and lake aerators use the wind to operate while solar styles use the energy of the sun to generate power. Both of these options save valuable energy while relying on nature's resources to get the job done.

When it comes to pond aeration, windmill and solar types are popular choices, but a simple garden pond aerator and quiet-line style works best for small water features such as Koi ponds.
 
Not sure what style you need? We can help! Give us a call and let us help you find the aeration system that is best for you. We pride ourselves on providing outstanding customer service and are happy to share our knowledge about pond products!
 
Aeration isn't just our business, it's our passion. There is nothing more beautiful than a peaceful pond or crystal clear lake with a fountain adorning its waters. If your water feature hasn't been looking its best, shop our great selection of aeration products and take the time to beautify your pond.

I am digging a pond about 2 1/2 acres of surface area and 30 feet deep. Was wondering when I should add the aeration system to it? As soon as it fills up or wait a couple years? Am located in the St. Louis Missouri area.
We recommend aerating immediately to save you from water quality issues down the road as well as overgrowth of algae and weeds to do excess nutrients in the water. It is better to aerate the water from the very beginning.

We are toying with the idea of starting a shrimp farm, 1/2 acre shallow (3 ft) ponds, starting with 4 ponds. No power close, but lots of sun, any ideas?
We have both solar and wind powered units, however I would recommend digging the ponds a little deeper, at least in the area where you will place your diffuser because they work much better in depths of 5 feet or deeper.

May 11, 2017
My pond in Lacombe, Louisiana is circular about 50 to 60 feet across. It slopes to about 6 feet deep in the center. There are turtles and fish in it and the population appears to be healthy. Pine and Oak trees cause a surface film. Otherwise it is pretty clear. Primarily I would like an aerator to break up the film. Any bubbling effect would be a secondary wish. Recommendations?
This unit would be perfect for your pond to have the effect you are desiring: http://www.livingwateraeration.com/af2400.html

May 8, 2017
We are looking to instal an aeration/fountain system to not only add oxygen and decrease the need for additives for algae, but to add ascetics to the neighborhood. Lights are definitely required. He is our issue on choosing which system would be best. Our pond currently has different elevations. We walked the pond to measure the depth and it went from about 2-3 feet around the edge to possibly 6-8 ft in what we would call the center. The pond is probably close to 15 yards across. Would a 1/2 hp aerator be enough, and which one would you suggest. Also can we leave the system in place over the winter, just turning off the electrical supply?
A 1/2 HP is all that you would need for a pond of that size and they can operate in depths of 18 inches or more. I see that you are in Minnesota and the ponds freeze over for the winter, in that case you will want to remove the fountains for the winter. In the case of those who are in the south where the ponds do not freeze they can remain in the pond year round.

I have a 1/3 acre pond in the DFW area of Texas with a depth of 12 feet. What would be a good system with a fountain and aeration for catfish to prosper.
For a 1/3 acre pond with that depth we would definitely recommend our 1 acre diffused system. A fountain will typically only aerate 5 feet deep or less so in a pond that is 6 feet or deeper you will always want to go with a sub surface diffused aeration system to aerate adequately. Here are a couple of links to both of our 1 acre systems the first one is with a cabinet and the second link is without a cabinet (if you have some means of protection or want to build your own then you can opt for the one without the cabinet): http://www.livingwateraeration.com/airpro-deluxe-2-acre-pond-aerator.html http://www.livingwateraeration.com/pa33w.html

I have a a fish pond 1 metre deep and roughly 3 metre X 3 metres that has fish and water lilies . The fish are gasping a little at this time of the year so I think the pond needs aerating. What would you suggest. Is solar an option. Thankyou Sue
I apologize but we do not have solar options for ponds that small. Also, unfortunately, we do not ship to Australia.

December 13, 2016
I have a 2-1/2 acre pond near Heflin, Alabama that was once an iron ore quarry. The depth varies with several pockets close to 75 ft deep. I'm currently managing the pond for bass with good results but have experienced a longer than normal period of low DO after the pond turned over this year. I'm looking at adding an aeration system but do not want to aerate the entire depth of the lake which would make fishing impossible. My question is, if I suspend an aerator at 10ft below the surface, will it aerate the entire depth of the lake or only the area at and above the diffuser? Any insight would be appreciated.
We have diffused systems that can operate at depths up to 50'. I would try to get the diffusers as deep as possible if you have 75' of depth. You should definitely see a change in your dissolved oxygen readings. For the most part only the area above the diffuser will be circulated but each diffuser can cover a large diameter. I definitely think adding one of our systems will prevent future fish kills even at your depths. I think the key would be to make sure you can aerate as deep as possible. This is the unit I would recommend for a 2.5 acre pond with your depths: http://www.livingwateraeration.com/airpro-deluxe-3-acre-pond-aerator.html
