A common misconception is that pond and lake aeration is only useful during spring and summer months to protect the fish, help control algae and weeds, or reduce the presence of muck. The truth is, however, winter aeration is an essential component of a beautiful, healthy body of water come springtime. This is especially true for water bodies that have a history of low dissolved levels of oxygen. Constant lake or pond aeration throughout the year will improve the circulation of oxygen throughout a water body, eliminate the risk of winter fish kill, and ultimately help your water body to return to its natural, healthy state.

Winter Aeration and Ice Prevention with Clean-Flo’s Systems
Our systems are custom designed for every project, involve no moving parts in the water, increase in efficiency with deeper water, prevent ice and reduce existing ice and operate in all climates. It is important for us to understand your goal of installing a winter aeration system. For instance, a system for preventing fish kills may be a small system with only a couple of diffusers. Compared to a system that is needed to totally prevent ice formation may have many dozens of diffusers depending on the size of the water body.
