Abstract:
Mechanical aerators add dissolved oxygen to water,
and depending upon the type, they also effect various degrees of water circulation. Mechanical water circulators, such as horizontal, axial-flow water circulators, lowspeed paddlewheels and propellers, and air-lift pumps are designed to mix and circulate water, but provide limited aeration. Some pond managers have installed mechanical water circulators to enhance water mixing beyond that provided by aerators. Those who feel that water circulation and mixing are equally as important as aeration in ponds seek to position aeration and circulation devices to achieve maximum water circulation.
