What We Do
Regular maintenance on fountains and surface aerators ensures the equipment is able to provide years of service and effective aeration.
Fountain Maintenance Services
Fountains with water-cooled motors require a constant flow of water to prevent overheating. Diminishing flow rates as a result of obstructions on the intake screen or in the nozzle can damage the motor. Fountains that utilize oil-cooled motors require periodic maintenance to maximize performance.
Monthly Fountain Maintenance
This service includes a monthly examination of all fountain and light set components, including, but not limited to, intake screen, discharge nozzle/valve, propeller/impeller, float buoyancy, pumping chamber, mooring lines, light bulbs and fixtures, ground fault circuit interrupter, and timer. During the contract period, Jones Lake Management absorbs all labor costs. This program is particularly beneficial for pond owners with clogging issues.
Aerator Maintenance Services
Sub-surface diffused aerators require regular maintenance to perform efficiently. Dirty air intake filters and air stones clogged with organic matter must be cleaned and replaced as needed. Restricted airflow results in diminished efficiency and can shorten the life of the compressor. The compressors utilized in sub-surface diffused aerators are designed for continuous use. As such, there are sacrificial moving parts that must be replaced over time.

Fountains and Aeration
Aeration offers a multitude of benefits for ponds and lakes. It enhances water circulation, which helps distribute oxygen more evenly, benefiting fish and other aquatic life. Aeration also reduces stratification, prevents harmful algal blooms, and improves water clarity. Additionally, it promotes the breakdown of organic matter, mitigating foul odors and improving overall water quality.
At Jones Lake Management, we offer both surface aeration and bottom-based aeration systems. Each system has unique advantages, and our experts will assess your waterbody to recommend the most suitable option based on your lake's specific needs.
Surface aeration, such as fountain aerators, agitate the water at the top to increase oxygen exchange and improve aesthetics. On the other hand, bottom-based aeration uses diffusers or air stones to release air at the lake's bottom, effectively lifting and circulating water from the depths to the surface. This type of aeration is more efficient for deeper waterbodies and can significantly enhance oxygen levels throughout the water column.
Aeration is a powerful tool for improving the health of your waterbody. By maintaining optimal oxygen levels and reducing stratification, aeration creates a healthier environment for fish, diminishes the potential for fish kills, and reduces the accumulation of harmful gases.. It also aids in decomposing organic matter and supports a thriving and balanced aquatic ecosystem.
