Large Lake Aeration - Riverdale Water Management

Large Lake Aeration

Our Lake Series aeration is perfect for those larger projects such as waste water lagoons, drinking water cells, retention ponds, beach areas or large lakes. These units are specifically designed to turn the entire body of water several times per day. Our units are very energy efficient  and are very cost effective to operate ( $50/mo). Maintenance is a consideration with any system as it can cost a lot of time and money; these systems have minimal maintenance costing much less in the long run. We have systems are currently installed and operating in Manitoba within Municipalities, Conservation Districts and Fish Enhancement organizations.

Fish Health and Overwintering

Our systems are being used in lakes to improve the dissolved oxygen levels. Our systems are successful in keeping the water open and oxygenated over the coldest months of the Manitoba winters resulting in healthy fish. Please contact us to obtain references.

Why is Aeration important?

Airmax Aeration Systems utilize a shore mounted air pump that delivers compressed air to a synergistic diffuser plate on the lake bottom. As the air rises from the diffuser plate at the bottom, it creates a convection current that slowly and steadily turns the water body over. Bringing the bottom waters up to the top to interact with the atmosphere not only adds oxygen to the water but circulates as well. It is this interaction that lies at the heart of the Airmax Aeration System.

The circulation created by the Airmax Aeration System eliminates the thermocline (water separated into multiple layers based on temperature.) When the thermocline is eliminated, oxygen is allowed to penetrate the bottom of the body of water, creating a perfect environment for aerobic beneficial bacteria  to thrive. With the help of these bacteria, the water column will become clear while the muck is reduced at the ponds bottom.

In a thermally stratified state, the bottom half of the lake becomes almost uninhabitable to fish. The low oxygen level and high amount of toxins drive your fish into the much warmer top half of the pond. The Airmax Aeration System de-stratifies the water column, creating optimal conditions for fish to inhabit the entire body of water.

Keeping the aerator running in colder climates (where an ice layer may form) will greatly reduce the chances of winter fish kill. Dying or dead vegetation will cause toxic gases to build up underneath the ice during the winter months. These toxic gases can displace the oxygen, causing a winter fish kill. The Airmax Aeration System can prevent this by circulating the water column, providing and maintaining an opening in the ice, and allowing the toxic gases to safely escape as well as increasing overall oxygen levels in the water column.

 No Power Needed at Shore! No Problem!

There is a misconception with subsurface aeration systems that the power source must be located near the pond. This is not the case! The power source for the Airmax Aeration System can be up to one quarter mile away(1000+ feet)! Using Airmax direct burial airline from the compressor located at the remote power source to the pond’s edge requires no electrician and costs a fraction of running electrical wire.
Note: Each diffuser needs a separate airline. If an individual run of airline is greater than 300 feet, 5/8 inch weighted airline is suggested. The distance between the compressor and the ponds edge can be up to 1000 ft per airline without performance loss.
