Off grid aeration: The wind doesn't always blow, but you can be reasonably confident that the sun will rise.

May 18, 2017



If you're considering a windmill to aerate your pond you might want to reconsider. While a wind powered aeration system is an option for a pond that is "off grid" it does have some disadvantages:
  • The wind doesn't always blow during the longest hottest days of July and August which is when aeration is most important.

  • When the wind is blowing it the surface action naturally aerates the water so the aeration system is working when it is least needed. 

  • Maintenance is challenging, requiring the removal of the cumbersome, heavy head.

  • Complex assemble, usually requiring multiple people.
