What are the Benefits of Pond Fountains?
Floating pond and lake fountains are beneficial to all aquatic life, because they replenish the often lacking oxygen levels in stagnant pond water. Circulating your pond or lake's water is one of the first and most effective ways to implement a proactive healthy pond management strategy. A few of the many benefits to adding a pond fountain to your pond or lake includes: algae and muck reduction, decrease in population of pesky insects like mosquitos, improved water quality, and a gorgeous water feature!

Maintaining a Pond FountainPond fountains and aerators typically require little maintenance. You should keep an eye on the pump's water intake to make sure it is free from leaves or other debris, as the pump can overheat if it is clogged. Our Signature Series Fountains have various mesh cage options to reduce the maintenance level of these units to practically nothing! Damage to the pump can occur as a result of excessive mineral build up. It is recommended to remove the fountain pump once per season and rinse it with clean water. Removing the fountain from your pond in colder climates is a possible recommendation depending on the pump's manufacturer. Some pumps aren't designed to stay in frozen water.
** Failures can occur with any mechanical unit. We do NOT recommend anyone swim in water with a pond fountain or aerator running.**
