Date added: 08/03/2017 FAQ: Why are fish dying in my pond?

Are you tired of dead fish washing up on the shore of your pond? The pond’s fish may be dying due to suffocation from lack of oxygen. A simple solution is to install an aeration system in order to prevent oxygen depletion.

There are three benefits to installing pond fountains for water aeration:

1) Allows for water oxygenation: ponds fall victim to oxygen depletion throughout all seasons of the year. Pond fountains circulate the water which provides a proper oxygen rich water environment for your fish year round.

2) Prevents stratification by mixing the warmer water at the top of the pond with the cooler water near the bottom.

3) Able to manage the ponds nutrients. A fountain will also help rid your pond of undesired algae and aquatic weeds. If you have moss and /or weeds growing from the bottom of your pond we suggest also adding a dye like Aqua-Shade which will limit the penetration of sunlight to the bottom of the pond.
