If you’re unsure about what time of year to start aeration systems, just know that can take up to 3-6 months to see improvements in controlling blue-green algae and duckweed, muck removal, and overall improving water quality using natural lake processes like lake aeration. Therefore, if you install the CLEAN-FLO aeration system in the fall, winter or early spring, you’ll achieve results by mid-summer. If you’re looking to improve the water quality of reservoirs, lakes, and ponds by the following summer, you must install your aeration system by fall or winter. So install the aeration system as soon as possible to improve water quality for best results this year and next year.
If you start next year, the growing season may be over before the reservoir, lake or pond is restored. Waiting will also allow more nutrients to accumulate, more plant growth which will produce more muck when it dies, and more oxygen swings which are detrimental to fish and other aquatic life. Control blue-green algae and duckweed, start muck removal, improve lake fishing and improve water quality by implementing an aeration system today! Learn more about winter aeration and fish kill.
