Why Do I Need Aeration in my Lake?
Having an aerator can prevent fish fatalities supplying abundant levels of oxygen even during hot summer days when oxygen levels can be at their lowest. In the winter the aerator normally generates enough bubbles to keep a hole open when the pond ices up. Without this gases from decomposing organic muck can build up under the ice again starving the lake of oxygen.
Most lake aerators leave you to find the right connectors, tubing and one or more diffusers to complete the installation. Get one component wrong and you may damage the aerator. You may waste money and also fail to generate enough air. All our Matala lake kits have been put together to optimize each component.
The aerators below come either with or without a special locking cabinet.
The locking cabinet is landscape green color and designed for outdoor extreme weather conditions. The cabinet stands on a solid support base to maintain a level installation. Within the cabinet there is a cooling fan with cross flow ventilation.
The compressor plugs into a built in outlet. All components are protected within. The heat protection hose leads externally and all you have to do is connect your air hose. It is very simple to install and operate. The cabinet should be located above pond water level and flood zone and within 50 feet of the shore. It should not be buried.
