Heathland Group can provide a variety of water aeration options including surface aerators. Our range of aerators includes surface water aerators, diffused aeration systems, solar-powered diffused aeration systems and aerating water fountains.
Water needs to move to maintain the correct levels of dissolved oxygen and this is extremely important to keep your water body healthy and habitable for aquatic life. Aerators are very beneficial, they not only protect your aquatic life by maintaining healthy oxygen levels, they constantly stimulate good aerobic bacteria. They also eliminate unwanted nutrients, which are a cause of algae outbreaks or blooms. Water aeration also reduces noxious smells and improves overall water quality. Silt reduction would also be a benefit of increased dissolved oxygen levels.
A surface aerator is one of the most common forms of aeration for water bodies throughout the world. These aerators are extremely popular and provide the ideal solution for most aeration needs. Very little technical knowledge is required to install them.
Our extensive range of aerators includes some of the most effective as they have minimal restriction of water flow from the nozzles. This results in increased volumes of flow and the very highest water turnover possible. It’s this process of water collision that allows oxygen to be transferred to the water. During the process air/oxygen is pushed into the water creating what is know as dissolved oxygen or DO. This is essential for the aeration process.
Heathland Group’s diffused aeration systems pump air through the diffuser membranes that are situated on the bed of the waterbody. This air is then able to travel to the lake surface in the form of millions of tiny bubbles.
As these bubbles travel upward through the layers of thermal stratification they entrain cooler, oxygen-deficient water with them. This water is then carried to the surface where it becomes naturally oxygenated. Heathland Group can provide a variety of diffused lake aerators offering both tube or disc-style diffuser membranes. In short, we have a diffused aeration systems to suit any requirement.
Heathland Group supplies and installs a wide range of aerating water fountains. These aerating water fountains are ideal for increasing the dissolved oxygen levels and improving the water quality but also give a stunning display.
The Select series 2 aerating water fountains are designed to have increased central water flow. Not only does this provides a strong stable pattern, but it also gives added aeration capabilities. All our fountain and surface aerators are available with optional lighting packages to further increase the aesthetics of your aerating fountain.
