Paddlewheel aerators are a very simple yet effective way of increasing dissolved oxygen in the water, there are no fancy compressors here, just motors that spin a wheel in the water. This agitation of the surface creates splashes that aerate the water while also moving it for circulation, reliability and ability to increase water flow. This is why paddlewheels are often chosen by trout farms who need a good blend of heavy aeration, fast moving water and ease of maintenance. These types of aerators would be more suited for shallower ponds as it does not address stratification in deeper bodies of water as well as other subsurface aeration options.
