What Are the Benefits of Installing a Floating Pond Fountain in Your Pond?

A pond provides an aesthetically pleasing water feature along with a setting for fascinating pond life. A floating pond fountain can be a great way to get the most out of your pond.

Generate oxygen in your pond.

 If you intend to have an aesthetically pleasing pond, free of odors, mosquitoes, and excess algae and weeds, there must be sufficient oxygenation (also known as aeration). A floating pond fountain will help to generate oxygen and aerate your pond to promote healthy, clear water.

Create a pleasing, healthy, and relaxing environment.

A floating pond fountain provides a relaxing element to any property due to its appearance and sound. A healthy pond – something fountains greatly aid in achieving – will only add to that. Fountains will also provide ideal conditions for aquatic wildlife. Fish will thrive and water clarity will visibly improve.

Improve water quality.

A pond fountain helps greatly in improving water quality. When you aerate you will create healthy oxygen levels in your pond, promote healthy bacteria, and achieve more balanced algae levels. Another added benefit of fountains is that they will eliminate stratification (detrimental water separation) in smaller ponds, which is done as small air bubbles rise to the surface. All of these things contribute to improving the water quality.

Keep the water moving

Stagnant water is the last thing you want in your pond. When the water is stagnant, it acts as a breeding ground for mosquitoes and harmful bacteria and also allows for a build-up of gasses in your pond that will occasionally be released, causing very unpleasant smells. A floating pond fountain helps in keeping the water moving to eliminate these common maladies.

Minimize algae, duckweed, and sediment.

Algae and duckweed are very common in ponds, but when there is an overgrowth of either, it can look unsightly (unless you’re partial to swamps) and contribute to the formation of pond muck. In order to have thriving pond life, you need to maintain balanced levels of weeds and algae.

In conclusion, installing a floating pond fountain can contribute greatly to improving the environment of your pond as well as enhance the overall appeal of your property.
