Atlantic-OASE is your pond and lake management source, with everything you need from small pond aeration systems to aeration systems for lakes. Pond vs lake aeration is a matter of scale. Small pond aeration and lake aeration system design share the same three components. The pond aerator diffusersits on the bottom; the pond air compressor sits at the edge of the water and aeration bacteriatreatments clear the water of nutrients. These components are simply upsized in the lake aeration system to aerate lake water.

Our small pond aerators and fish pond bubblers generate fine bubbles from pond aeration diffusers on the bottom, which push large amounts of water upwards as bubbles rise. The fine bubble aerator for ponds is the best way to oxygenate water. Rising air bubbles in pond water raise pond oxygen levels as bottom water contacts the atmosphere at the surface. The oxygen in pond water supercharges bacteria, which consume wastes and starve out algae.

Aeration of lakes is the economical way to circulate, clean and clear large volumes. Most public pond and lake maintenance professionals use aeration for algae control in ponds. The lake air diffuserhandles much greater aeration air flow than the pond air diffuser. Aeration pumps for lakes, lake aeration compressors produce millions of fine bubbles in lake water that start from greater depths and rise farther for longer, so they lift and circulate huge quantities of water. Larger doses of bacteria, like the pond bacteria block, treat lakes for a month or more. 

Atlantic-OASE offers many small pond aerators and kits and the best pond diffuser system, the best subsurface aeration system for the aeration of lakes or, if you prefer a decorative fountain installation, multiple illuminated floating self contained fountains. Whatever you need, Atlantic-OASE has got you covered!

Without Aeration

Signs of Imbalance

  • Algae, opaque green water or excessive growth of string or blanket weed
  • An excess of submerged vegetation and rampant marginal aquatic plant growth
  • Foul odors, of the water or of the sediments at the bottom
  • Dead fish, especially after a storm or a change to cooler weather
  • Small, few or no live fish at all

Causes of Imbalance

  • Excessive nutrients in the water and the sediment
  • Insufficient total dissolves oxygen levels
  • Stratification and thermoclines that cut off surface oxygen


With Aeration 

Benefits of Aeration

  • Aeration creates bubbles that increase the surface area of air in contact with the water
  • Millions of bubbles moving upwards pull huge volumes of water up from the bottom
  • Oxygen-poor water rushes upwards, eliminating thermal layers, shedding toxic gases and picking up oxygen 
  • Oxygen-rich water circulates down to the bottom, promoting the growth of bacteria that digest organic sludge and eliminate excessive nutrients
