Service: Aeration Installation & Maintenance
Often times, water bodies can benefit from the introduction of an aeration system as an important part of an all-encompassing, successful pond and lake management program. ILM’s experienced aeration team can design and install a unique aeration system that will complement and benefit your lake or pond. We have been working with local communities for over 20 years, partnering with top industry manufacturers to provide quality aeration products and maintenance services to our clients.
Why is Aeration Beneficial?
Aeration is the process of adding oxygen to water – which is essential to a healthy pond. When pond waters are stagnant, they are susceptible to algae growth, accumulation of unwanted bacteria and aquatic nuisance plants and foul odors. Aeration systems cause surface disruption on the pond’s surface, create circulation in the water and add dissolved oxygen which in turn:
- Improves water quality
- Reduces algae, phosphorus and foul odors
- Breaks down unwanted bacteria
- Enhances fish habitat
A variety of pond characteristics (including size, depth, desired aesthetics) can help determine if aeration is right for you and what type of system would most benefit your lake or pond.
Routine Aeration Maintenance
Just like our vehicles, an aeration system is an investment that requires routine maintenance to keep it running efficiently and to prevent expensive breakdowns. ILM is an authorized repair center for a variety of industry-leading fountain and aeration manufacturers.
Maintenance services include:
- Routine oil changes (based on individual manufacturers’ recommendations)
