Fountains vs. Aerators:

Which One is Better?

Fountains and aerators can help improve the overall water quality of lakes, ponds, canals, and other bodies of water. But what’s the difference between the two?

Fountains offer both function and aesthetic appeal for waterways. The various spraying patterns create large, beautiful displays and bring back dissolved oxygen back into stagnant water. The constant movement in the water reduces excessive algae growth, preventing muck and invasive vegetation from developing. This results in waterways with better visibility, making ideal habitats for aquatic species.

On the other hand, aerators focus more on function. They cut down on nutrient load (pond muck and decomposing debris), alleviate foul odors, and reduce the accumulation of bottom sediment. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, Southern Aquatics & Construction Inc. can help you choose a product that best suits your waterway’s size, shape, and depth.
