Pond fountains are widely used in
both commercial and residential landscaping. A commercial pond fountain
could be found at a golf course, on the grounds of a country club, in
the courtyard of a hotel or corporate headquarters, or in the lake of a
resort. Not only do commercial fountains help manage stormwater,
commercial pond fountains add value to any property.
Residential pond fountains similarly
enhance the beauty and value of any residential landscape. They can be
found in neighborhood developments and on private property, where
homeowners can relax with the tranquil sight and soothing sound of the
Pond fountains not only add beauty
and elegance to a landscape, they are beneficial to the water and the
eco-system of the pond itself. Like aeration systems, fountains also
introduce oxygen into the water as droplets splash down onto the
surface. A fountain can provide sufficient aeration on its own for a
small pond. Owners of deep or irregular ponds who need to aerate a
large area or multiple areas may find it beneficial to incorporate both
a floating fountain in the center of the pond and one or more aeration
systems. The following are some of the ways that a pond fountain can
improve the quality of water and life in a pond.
Improvement of water quality: More
and more commercial sites are adding stormwater ponds to their
property. These ponds collect run-off from parking lots and high
ground, run-off that often contains dirt, debris, and even garbage. In
a stagnant pond, these substances settle to the bottom and release
gases and metals that contaminate the water. A pond fountain improves
the quality of water by de-stratifying the water column as it pulls
water into the pump. In addition, the droplets that splash back into
the pond contain oxygen, and oxygen-rich water supports the bacteria
that biodegrade pond sludge.
Decrease in insect populations:
Stagnant ponds are the favorite breeding ground for mosquitoes and
other insects. With growing insect-related health concerns, like the
Zika virus, many pond owners are turning to pond fountains as a means
of decreasing or eliminating insect populations. Fountains introduce a
constant movement in the water, making it unfriendly to breeding
Reduction of algae: The splashing
water of a pond fountain forces surface-dwelling algae down below the
surface, depriving it of the sunlight it needs to grow. In addition,
the extra oxygen introduced by a fountain decreases excess nutrients in
the pond, which helps with controlling algae.
Improvement in the quality of pond
life: Owners of fish ponds often add a fountain not only to beautify
the pond but to promote a healthier environment for their fish. One of
the biggest dangers for fish is a decrease in the level of dissolved
oxygen in pond water. The oxygen introduced by a pond fountain can
significantly improve their habitat, making it easier for the fish to
survive and thrive.
There are many types of pond
fountains to choose from. Decorative fountains are selected primarily
for their aesthetic appeal, and they come in different sizes, from a
few feet high to a dramatic 20 feet or higher above the surface.
Decorative fountains often come with interchangeable spray nozzles that
create a variety of spray patterns, from starbursts to cascading tiers
to a single majestic jet.
While the splashing water of a
decorative floating fountain provides a degree of valuable surface
aeration, the spray of aerating fountains provide more GPM(gallons per
minute), meaning higher volume, more splashing and more movement of the
water than decorative fountains . Aerating fountains that spray in a
v-shaped pattern perform a higher degree of oxygen transfer than
decorative fountains and may be a better choice for a large body of
water if aeration is a primary goal.
Living Water Aeration is proud to
offer products from leading manufacturers of pond fountains.
Marine is a Wisconsin-based company that specializes in floating
decorative and aerating fountains in addition to other products that
promote healthy natural water environments. In business for over 40
years, they continue to grow in popularity. Their products have been
best sellers for Living Water Aeration since 2004.
is another experienced manufacturer of high-quality pond fountains and
water aeration systems. Drawing from research in wastewater engineering
and lake management, they have developed highly effective aeration
systems that are safety-tested and approved.
Another company with 40 years of
makes the AquaFountain, a smaller fountain that comes in ˝ HP and 1 HP
sizes. These fountains are ideal for customers who want a beautiful
fountain for a small pond at a lower cost.
The depth, shape, and size of the
water feature all have an influence on the choice of fountain.
Depth: It is generally recommended
that a fountain be used for aeration in water that is less than six
feet deep. Since a fountain pulls water from the upper strata of the
water column, water below a depth of six feet may not be circulated as
well. For deeper ponds, subsurface aeration is recommended.
Shape: A pond fountain works well to
aerate a round pond. However, if a pond has an irregular shape, the
water doesn’t circulate as well, and a fountain may not be able to
aerate all areas of the pond. In that case, subsurface aerators can be
placed in outlying areas.
Size: Pond fountains in larger ponds
need more powerful motors. 1.5 HP per acre is a good rule of thumb for
choosing a motor for an aerating fountain. The size of the pond also
determines the height of the spray. A fountain should spray water to a
height of no more than half the width of the pond to prevent too much
water being removed.
Temperature: A fountain is not
designed to operate in freezing weather, so experts recommend removing
a fountain during the winter to prevent damage from ice.
Pond fountain lights are a favorite
accessory as they add a lot to the visual appeal of a pond at night.
Living Water Aeration offers a variety of lighting kits, available in
sets of 2, 3, and 6 light fixtures with waterproof connections. The
fixtures come with a choice of colored lenses, and the lights are
installed above the surface of the water to light the fountain from
below. The following are a couple of things to consider when lighting a
Type of bulb: Living Water Aeration
offers LED lights with a variety of colored lens caps. Kasco’s RGB
lighting, a new product, has color-changing LED bulbs with the capacity
to create nine different colors and three different sequencing
patterns. Users can also adjust the brightness of the bulbs. The
lighting system is operated by remote control, and it can also be
coupled with a music device so that the light sequence changes with the
rhythm of the music.
Quantity of light: The ideal number
of lights will depend on the size of the fountain. Lighting
manufacturers recommend a 3 LED light kit for ˝ to 2 HP units, and 6
LED light kits for 2 HP to 7.5 HP units. Using a 6 LED light kit with a
2HP unit will yield a brighter display.
In addition to lighting, Living Water
Aeration provides other pond accessories, including rocking piston sub
surface aeration kits, cleaning supplies, sludge remover, and dye.
Living Water Aeration professionals are available to help customers
figure out not only which type of fountain is best suited to their
pond, but also which accessories will be the most beneficial for their
Pond fountains need relatively little
maintenance, but owners should be prepared to keep an eye on the pump
intake in order to keep it free of leaves and other debris in most
ponds clogging is not an issue, the fountains include a grate over the
bottom and most small sticks and leaves that get near th motor are
pulverized instantly. If the intake gets clogged, the motor could
overheat. Excessive mineral buildup can also damage the pump,
especially the seals and bearings. Therefore, it’s recommended that the
fountain be taken out once per season and flushed with clean water. In
cold climates where ponds ice over, as mentioned previously, fountains
should be removed for the winter.
