Need Aerator Stored Properly For the Winter….Call Pond Wiser 330-833-FROG

Looking to have your aerator properly maintained and stored for the winter? Call Pond Wiser today at 330-833-FROG!

Pond Wiser is busy closing down ponds and removing aerators. Here in Ohio we experience significant freezing which can and most likely will completely destroy your existing aerator. The expansion and contraction that happens when ice is formed and then melts away can transfigure even the sturdiest aerators into heaps of useless metal. In any climate it is recommended that aerators should be removed from the water at least once a year to clean the exterior of the system, especially the stainless steel motor housing (can).

The motor housing is the surface that dissipates heat into the water and if there is any algae buildup it will become an insulator that then blocks the proper heat transfer. Many times a power washer can be used to remove algae if it hasn’t built up into too thick of a layer.

Like any motor that is running all the time, it is a good idea to give it an occasional rest and have some preventative maintenance done to prevent motor failure. We at Pond Wiser provide this service as well as the winter storage for your aerator so you can have confidence that your aerator will be working properly in the spring.

If you notice that your aerator doesn’t seem to be operating properly, look to see if there may be a blockage which often times is caused by thick leaves or plastic bags that have blown into the water. Any material blocking the proper water flow into or out of the aerator can cause the aerator to fail.

We are happy to come evaluate your pond or water garden’s aerator. We can also ensure that it is properly sized for the body of water it is in and the plant, or aquatic life present.
Call in the Pond and Water Garden Aerator Experts if you want to remove the worry and stress that can come from improper aerator maintenance.

Enjoy your Ohio winter and remember, we are here to help you create or maintain the Water Garden or pond of your dreams.
