Will aeration reverse the muck build up in a pond. I know that it would have no effect on silt.

It will provide the habitat for the organisms that decompose the muck.

An effective aeration system brings oxygen into the water, eliminates stratification and increases circulation. This makes the water at all levels able to support animal and plant life, control algae growth by limiting its food source, and aid decomposition of suspended organic material and muck on the bottom of the lake. We have seen very good results of muck reduction after the installation of an aeration system.

I am kind of excited right now. Tonight I presented my sales pitch to the rest of the board on the benefits of aeration and getting a fountain in our village pond. They all agree that we should bring in the sales rep and see what he suggests for us. This spring we will have our lighted fountain and aerator. Perhaps this added aeration could give us back a couple of feet after muck reduction?

Illinois,

We will be making a trip here soon to Chicago. What is the date of your next meeting? Maybe I can work out our schedule to present the benefits of aeration both surface and subsurface.

The board decided to go with a lighted display aerator due to the lack of the pond depth(6 ft). The gentleman who sold this told us that he could sell us as much as we wanted but advised us to stay away from bottom aeration until we get the pond cleaned out. The system will be installed in the spring and taken out in the fall. We currently have a home made aerator in the shallow end made using an old smog pump from a truck. It really works rather well and has kept the end of the pond open all winter for the last 18 years.
