Fountains can act as surface aerators and is recommended only in the shallow areas of the pond as fountains are much less efficient than bottom-up aeration for increasing oxygen levels. Fountains do have more visual appeal though, than bottom-up aerators and add to the decor of the pond! Essentially, the splashing of the fountain water traps oxygen in the top 6 inches to 1 FT of the surface pond water. We include our aeration and decorative nozzles to increase the oxygen capture and depth that the surface aeration will go down. The deeper the splash the further down the oxygen penetration goes which helps with the circulation flow in the pond. Surface aeration also assists with minimizing the amount of insect breeding in the pond by providing consistent surface agitation.

Decorative Fountains use very little amperage as you can see by the specifications chart below. Our fountains come with 100 FT of electrical cord instead of the 50 FT that comes with many of the fountains on the market.

For evening ambience, choose a Koenders Decorative Fountain with lighting!

Our lighted fountains include all of the benefits of our regular Decorative Fountain Packages, PLUS: 

Whether you’re lighting up the course from your golf course restaurant, or illuminating your backyard pond, our Koenders Lighted Decorative Fountains add the perfect touch of luxury to your pond.

"Our pond brings a great deal of pleasure to me, thus I want to keep it algae and muck free especially in the hot summer months where pond water issues area more predominant. This year we had a very hot summer, extreme temperatures that got up into the high 80’s, low 90’s and with the use of Koender’s Nature’s Pond Conditioner and aeration windmill I was able to keep my pond algae and muck free. My goal has always been to prevent pond water issues from occurring as opposed to waiting until there is an issue."

We can see the bottom of our pond!!

We are using a Koenders Water Solutions 16 ft Single Diaphragm Windmill System as well as Nature’s Pond Conditioner and Dye to keep our swimming pond clean and clear and we can see the bottom at 16 ft deep.

We are very happy with the product. We also have one of your aeration windmills and pond rakes. Before putting in the Natures’ Pond Conditioner we had a record year of Algae in our pond, all over and thick. The year after using Nature’s Pond Conditioner along with raking out the algae as well, we have had our record year of the pond being the healthiest it has been. The algae was so bad before I can begin to describe it.

I have been on the nature’s pond care program of for about 2 years now, using the Koender’s Double Diaphragm windmill aeration system and Nature’s Pond Conditioner as well as the Nature’s Pond dye and I am very happy with the results. The algae is almost eliminated and the pond weeds have been reduced significantly, where the pond weeds once went 15-20ft from the shoreline are now only 3.5ft from the shoreline. The Koender’s Aeration windmill has impressed me on how well it has kept the ice off the pond in the cold winter months, not to mention, it’s been virtually maintenance free

- Don | Peoria IL

During the Winter, we use Koenders Dual Diaphragm Windmill for aeration with 2 airstones and Nature’s Pond Conditioner. It keeps the fish nice and healthy all seasons. We use the pond for fishing and also swimming in the Summer. We’re really happy with everything.
