Plan for Winter Pond Aeration

September 18, 2013

First, what is winter pond aeration? An aerator keeps your pond well oxygenated and can help keep a section of your pond open in the winter time. An aerator works under the premise that moving water resists freezing. When using an aerator, you must remember a few things. An aerator is capable of hyper-cooling your water, if used when air temps are below freezing (reference).
