Vertex bottom aeration systems provide a beneficial and cost effective method of improving both the water quality of your pond and it's overall health.
The Vertex aeration system consists of a small shore mounted compressor (1/3-1hp), feeding a
configuration of self-cleaning flexible membrane diffusers. Positioned on the bottom, each diffuser station produces millions of small 500-1000 micron sized bubbles, creating a slow moving current that entrains the entire water column providing aeration through surface contact. Designed to be both energy efficient and cost effective, Vertex Aeration Systems can aerate up to an 18 Acre lake with as little as 2/3 hp! With low monthly operating costs, low maintenance (self-cleaning diffusers), and no potentially dangerous electricity in the water, we think this is the perfect aeration system.
Aeration naturally restores the health of a pond by introducing oxygen and circulation to the entire water column. Stagnation is replaced by a column of bubbles capturing oxygen at the surface and allowing an exchange of toxic gases for oxygen. A convection current is generated bringing oxygen to the lower layers. Naturally occurring aerobic bacteria are energized by the introduction of oxygen and a natural biological cleaning process begins to reduce the muck layer and subsequent plant and algae growth. Studies have demonstrated a doubling of water clarity, muck reduction measured in inches per season and healthy dissolved oxygen levels at all water depths.
Ponds, lakes, fish farms come in all sizes, depths, shapes, material construction and oxygen requirements, so how do you know what aeration system is best for your application? If you are like 75% of our customers and have a 1/2 acre to 3 acre pond with a round or oval shape, check out our complete packages on the left. We give you a complete product, ready to install, everything included.
For the 25% with ponds that are over 3 acres, high Biological Oxygen Demand, have irregular shapes or bottom topography, let us help you with a solution. We can measure ponds from a satellite in most parts of the world and can map and specify an aeration solution. We have designed systems that range from a 200 Acre Lake to a backyard swimming pond, so let us help you build a system that is designed for you.
