Lake fountains aeration action oxygenates and stirs the water layers and can create
conditions to shift from toxic to a algae population that is not as dense or as toxic to other
organisms in the water.
In addition to plant-generated oxygen, the earth's atmospheric pressure is constantly
"pushing" tiny molecules of dissolved oxygen gas into the surface water of our lakes, ponds, oceans, swimming pools-even
that glass of water on you kitchen counter!
The process is known as diffusion and it's a never-ending cycle.
As oxygen gas is being pushed into water, excess oxygen from the water is simultaneously being released back into the air.
Wind and wave action or man-made fountains can accelerate diffusion by creating more surface
area for oxygen to enter the water.
