Bottom or diffused aeration systems are the most cost effective 'GREEN' solution to increase dissolved oxygen, water quality and water circulation in earthen farm ponds and inland lakes. Bottom aeration, through a Vertex® aeration system, not only provides oxygenated water for your fish, it also works to turn the bottom of your pond into a massive biofilter, fostering large populations of beneficial bacteria that create a healthier aquatic ecosystem.
When the increase of beneficial bacteria occurs, algae and other nuisance aquatic growth will not have sufficient nutrients to thrive in your pond. Accumulated organic bottom sludge or 'Pond Muck' is digested naturally, removing the source of nutrients that fuel murky waters and algae blooms.
Vertex® aeration systems work by creating a massive column of tiny bubbles surging up through the water column, pushing bottom water to the water's surface where it is further aerated by the atmosphere. This is also where oxygen diffusion into the water takes place. Water turnover is the foundation of any aeration system, and the rate of water turnover that is created by a Vertex® aeration system is what sets Vertex® above every other brand.
The science and engineering that Vertex® developed into their systems set the standard for the industry and is what every other company is trying to create. Still Pond Farm has the ability to sell every other aeration system in the industry, we choose to offer Vertex® because they are the best!
