Water Restoration with Continuous Laminar Flow Inversion
The most important part of CLEAN-FLO’s water management and eutrophication reversal is called “Continuous Laminar Flow Inversion and Oxygenation.” This process enables eutrophication reversal and water restoration processes to function. CLEAN-FLO invented and perfected this energy efficient water restoration process for lakes, ponds, rivers and water supply sources. Unlike ordinary diffused air systems, surface aeration, paddlewheels, hypolimnetic aerators, or propeller-aspirator aerators, CLEAN-FLO oxygenates an entire body of water from top to bottom. CLEAN-FLO water restoration oxygenates and rids the entire water supply of phosphorus, ammonia and carbon dioxide which aquatic weeds and algae need for food.
The CLEAN-FLO water management and eutrophication reversal process duplicates spring and fall turnover of a water supply. In tropical countries, natural inversion occurs randomly with typhoons, cyclones and torrential rains. Natural inversion oxygenates the bottom water and rids the water supply of toxic gases that accumulate in stagnant water. Eutrophication is reversed and natural water restoration occur.
Water Management and Water Restoration
The CLEAN-FLO water management process increases natural inversion to several times a day or several times a week or month. The amount of inversion depends on CLEAN-FLO’s water management design to counteract eutrophication. We have over thirty-six years of water restoration experience built into our computers to tell us how many inversions are necessary for each body of water. It takes many water management factors into account, such as incoming water quality, degree of eutrophication, flow rate, retention time of the water supply, sediment, weeds, algae, fish-kills, and much more.
This water restoration process carries oxygenated, toxic gas-free surface water down to the bottom of the water body. At the bottom, oxygenated water binds phosphorus and nitrogen to the sediments and kills anaerobic, often pathogenic (disease producing) bacteria that produce acids and toxic gases. The CLEAN-FLO water management process usually reduces phosphorus and nitrogen in the water supply three to twenty times as much as point-source watershed treatment can accomplish.
Continuous Laminar Flow Inversion and Oxygenation enables beneficial microorganisms to feed on bottom organic sediment. It enables aquatic insects to feed on the microorganisms, and fish to inhabit the bottom waters and feed on the insects.
