Do you have a pond or lake near your house or place of business? Do you have a feature to aerate that pond or lake? If the lake is stagnant, it probably has a lot of scum or algae built up on the surface. Adding some kind of fountain will eliminate that problem and make your pond even more beautiful. But what fountain would work best? When it comes to beautifying your pond with a water feature, consider these three options!
When deciding on what pond aerators and fountains to get, the waterfall is a pretty, calming option. Waterfalls can get placed in any spot around the side of the pond. Wherever you decide to place the waterfall, you can connect it to a good water pump that will maintain a continuous stream of water down the feature. It makes for nice pictures and calming sounds of running water.
Another type of fountain you could get for your pond is a rocking fountain. These fountains spin like a Ferris wheel, bringing water along for the ride. Hooked up to the right pump system, these fountains can keep the water in your pond swimming and provide a fun aesthetic.
The most popular fountains are floating fountains, that live in the middle of the pond and spray a huge misty ray up into the air. These can come in different shapes and sizes. Some fountains spray water upwards and some spray water outwards in a circle.
Regardless of which fountain you go with, it is essential to have a strong water pump to help aerate the pond. The better aeration, the more oxygen the water will have. With more oxygen, plants and wildlife in and around the pond will thrive. Eliminate the stagnation of the pond and bring a little bit of fun to it as well.
