Blagdon Pond Oxygenator 1800 Air Pump
The 1800 model is suitable for powering 6 individual air stones and is estimated to be sufficient for koi ponds up to 5000 litres / 1100 gallons or goldfish ponds up to 10000 Litres / 2200 gallons. Each air stone produces a stream of bubbles which increases the amount of oxygen in the pond through circulation and disruption of the surface tension film.
The Blagdon pond oxygenator range creates powerful aeration & circulation. they are outdoor weatherproof, have 5 meters of cable and come with a 3 year guarantee
Fish and pond wildlife require oxygen rich water to remain healthy, during warm weather when oxygen levels in the water drop.
Using a Blagdon Oxygenator 1800 in your pond will dramatically increase the level of oxygen and reduce carbon dioxide levels. By creating circulation, the oxygenator will aerate the pond, disrupting the surface tension film allowing toxic gases to escape and oxygen in.
In contrast during colder months when the pond is likely to freeze, adding an oxygenator will keep an area of pond ice free and prevents the build-up of toxic gases.
Even though during the day oxygenating plants produce oxygen at night they stop photosynthesising and start depleting the pond of oxygen.
Beneficial bacteria in the pond and filtration systems also require oxygen to flourish. Ensuring the breakdown of highly toxic ammonia and nitrites keeping the pond free from toxic waste. When using treatment and medications in your pond often reduces oxygen levels; adding aeration will benefit the fish and wildlife when they are most vulnerable.
Additionally, by placing air stones directly into the filter chambers, beneficial bacteria, essential to the well being of a pond, will be encouraged to grow, which in turn will greatly improve filter efficiency and fish health.
