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. That prevents the suffocation of micro life and fish.
water temperature rises in the summer, lack of oxygen often occurs. The 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. The air
bubbles will keep the pond ice-free and the water oxygen-rich.
Simply plug in the air pump, attach the pump to the air stone with the fibre reinforced airline supplied with the pump! The Silenta Air Outdoor pump is rain proof and should be located next to the pond, we recommend covering this in winter or removing and bringing indoors.
