Why do I need to aerate my pond?

In many garden ponds, it is necessary to add an air generator to obtain a good biological environment, in which fish and plants thrive. Oxygen is released into the water in the form of bubbles, at the same time, the bubbles remove harmful gases from deeper in the water. This prevents the suffocation of micro life and fish, but when the water temperature rises in the summer, lack of oxygen often occurs. When there is a lack of oxygen, fish will swim to the surface to gasp for air, and when you remove algae, you take away an important source of oxygen too; the solution is to aerate the pond. When in winter the pond freezes over, fish can often die as a result of suffocation, particularly in small shallow ponds. However, you should never chop a hole in the ice because the vibrations will harm your fish. Aeration of the water is a better solution as the air bubbles will keep the pond ice-free and the water oxygen-rich.

We also sell the Silenta Repair Kits, with replacement diaphragm membranes, housing and air filters.
