Is Solar Aeration the right solution for your pond or lake?
Is solar aeration the right solutions for your pond or lake? Do you know the difference between solar aeration and windmill or electric aeration? Let’s take a look at the differences between solar aeration, wind aeration and electric aeration systems and see which is the right solution for your pond or lake.
Adding an aeration system to your pond can mean the difference between a thriving and failing ecosystem. In a nutshell, an aeration system will increase dissolved oxygen levels, lessen the effects of nutrient loading, and inhibit the release of harmful substances from the sediment into the water column. A properly aerated pond is less prone to harmful algae blooms and provides a healthy environment for aquatic organisms.
While pond aeration systems can be less expensive and more energy efficient, many pond owners find that the cost to bring electrical service to the aeration system can be extreme. This is evident on properties where the nearest transformer is hundreds of yards away or where existing obstacles block installation. In these situations, solar powered aeration systems tend to be the ideal solution.
The configuration of solar aeration systems is similar to traditional aeration systems, except that the compressor is connected to solar panels instead of an electrical power source. Something worth noting about the solar powered equipment is that the weather can be a limiting factor. Outdoor Water Solutions solar aeration systems come with a battery backup system that can provide for up to three days of power without sunlight.
