Why DEICEair recommends a Bubble Tubing ® based Canadian Air, system as our best value aeration product for Ponds.


We have numerous offerings when it comes to POND AERATION. These range from Kasco’s amazing line of VFX Aerating Fountains, to their plug and play Robust-Aire diffusers, as well as many other smaller systems and options for ponds of all sizes. But when it comes to the greatest value, for an aeration system based on efficiency and efficacy the Canadian Air Systems are our go-to products. Bubble Tubing ® is the key component and the reason our system’s  have the ability to deliver the highest Standard Oxygen Transfer Rate (SOTR) and Standard Oxygen Transfer Efficiency (SOTE) on the market. This means that we can deliver enough Oxygen to a pond to lower BOD/BOD5, and thus combat algae and other issues resulting from high BOD/BOD5.

Biological Oxygen Demand or BOD/BOD5 which is is the amount of dissolved oxygen needed (i.e. demanded) by aerobic biological organisms to break down organic material present in a given amount of water.  The higher the demand, the greater the likelihood for algae blooms, fish kill, muck, mud, undigested leaf litter and debris, as well as excess turbidity and other issues associated with that organic load.

One of the best solutions for these issues is always Aeration, and as previously mentioned if Aeration is the recommended fix, than it stands to reason that the most efficient and effective system will offer the best results for maintaining balance in a pond.
