Lake & Dam

Aerating dams provide improvements to water quality in a number of ways. Algae are reduced, foul smells can be eliminated and mosquitoes won’t like the moving water. If your dam is used for stock or irrigation then it makes sense to provide the best quality water available. A non-aerated dam may experience algal blooms, which produce low oxygen or anaerobic conditions. The consequence being foul smells, unpalatable water for livestock or clogging of irrigation systems. Aerating dams can also help with longevity and service intervals of pumping equipment by reducing the amount of organic debris and algae that cause blockages. Dam aerators come in a variety of styles to suit different applications. We have aerators for waste water treatment dams, golf course dams, farm dams, irrigation dams, swimming dams, fishing dams and any other dam you can imagine. Contact us and make sure you get the best product for aerating your dam.

With deeper bodies of water it is common to find stratification occurring. Stratification is the vertical division of the water body into layers of different temperatures. Because water density is based on temperature, the lower density, warmer water at the top gets well oxygenated at the surface while the lower temperature ‘heavier’ water stays at the bottom with little or no oxygen. This is particularly harmful for fish because they lose the option of moving up and down the water column to gradually regulate their temperature due to a lack of oxygen in the bottom. A lack of water mixing is often a major contribution to summer fish kills, especially after summer rain. Another issue arising from stratification of lakes or dams with a groundwater or saltwater source is concentration of hydrogen sulphide. This can cause corrosion of equipment, odour control problems and serious health concerns
