Vertex Aeration Systems
During summer months when the water is warm, oxygen can be consumed faster than it can be replenished. Ponds and lakes can get 'stratified' as the warmer, oxygen-rich upper water suspends on top of cooler, lower-oxygen water. Such conditions inhibit levels of beneficial bacteria and their breakdown of organics. Bottom muck accumulation increases and excessive nutrients in the water column accelerate the growth of noxious aquatic weeds and algae.
Vertex Sub-Surface Aeration Systems create a vertical current of water that draws this deep water to the surface where it is allowed to absorb oxygen. This process helps to eliminate thermal stratification and increase dissolved oxygen levels at all depths of the pond or lake. As wide swings in oxygen levels are stabilized, fish kills are prevented and they are able to expand their territory into formerly oxygen-deprived portions of the lake.
Vertex Sub-Surface Aeration Systems consist of small shore mounted air compressors feeding a configuration of
self-cleaning flexible membrane diffusers. When positioned on the bottom of ponds and lakes, each diffuser station produces millions of very small bubbles that add beneficial dissolved oxygen to the water column.
The addition of a sub-surface aeration system is the single best thing you can do for the health of your pond or lake.
