How to calculate the appropriate ventilation required for a large pond or lake:

Size requirements guide:

 

Calculate the lake area A) Multiply the length of the lake (in feet) by the width of the lake (in feet) to obtain the square feet of the surface. Area = length x width

 

Divide the surface area (in square feet) by 43,560 to obtain the surface area. Area = 43,560 acres

 

Calculate the necessary aeration. Normal aeration requires replacing 1 (one) acre foot or 325,900 gallons of water every 24 to 48 hours. This will add at least 3.2 pounds. Oxygen consumption per horsepower per hour. Under normal water conditions, use at least 1-1 / 2 HP (two-one-half) aerators per acre of ground. For warm climates or overgrowth of algae, use at least one 2 hp aerator per acre.

 

Calculated number of aerators Number of aerators = acres (rounded up) Example: 220 feet for a lake. Width x 370 feet long (220 feet x 370 feet = 81,400 square feet = 1.87 acres (rounded to 2 acres)).

 

There are high air temperature issues in the following two conditions: (2) It is necessary for the weather to be high. The following two conditions are possible: (2) The weather is high.

Maximize water quality and start aerating before hot weather and algae accumulation. Before aeration, excess algae and sludge must be physically removed or chemically treated. If the water quality is compromised (mild to moderate algae), aerate continuously 24 hours a day until the algae are controlled.
Choose the size of aerator suitable for your pond. We classify them according to the size of the pond to be treated. If you have too much fish or waste, you may need to use larger fish or waste. This is a bit tricky, so please contact us to inform you about the size of the pond, including shape and depth, so that we can help you. In addition, please indicate the distance of the power supply from the edge of the pond. Because the compressor must be protected from various factors (such as wind, rain, snow, etc.), many people install the compressor under a ventilated false rock cover near the edge of the pond. However, you may be able to place the compressor 1,000 feet away from the edge of the pond, then lay multiple tubes to the edge, then connect the tubes to the shunt / splitter, and then connect the weighted tube or multi-head tube In each diffuser. pond.

 

This is a very simple process. It consists of stainless steel hose clamp and screwdriver. Tighten the clip to the adapter and hose. Transport it into the pond and connect it to the diffuser with another hose clamp, then lower it into the water. Then, on the bank where the compressor is located, you only need to connect the pipeline to the compressor and insert it. It's super easy! Many people buried polyethylene pipes, but they worked well.

 

Don't forget to add beneficial bacteria to the pond regularly. This will accelerate the decomposition of organic matter (leaves, silt, muck, fallen debris, etc.), constantly providing nutrients to your pond algae and weeds and making them easier to grow. Pond bacteria also help maintain the "health" of the bottom of the pond, so fish living in the area have a better living environment and will not survive in an anaerobic, toxic environment.
