During the fall of each year, the Jones Lake Management Fountain Service Team gears up and begins removing floating fountains and surface aerators for winter maintenance and storage. Our Fountain Winterization Service includes removal of the fountain or aerator in late fall, pressure washing the system, inspection and/or replacement of mooring lines, inspection of all underwater power cables, and an amperage draw test. We also reinstall the unit in the spring of the following year. At that time, we will ensure the mooring lines are properly anchored and the fountain is operating correctly. If any additional parts or supplies are needed for repair, you will be notified prior to the repair.

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.
