The Proof is in the Science
An independent study with Airmax Aeration by Aeration Technologies of North Carolina.
A 1/2 acre, kidney shaped, 10+ year old pond located in the state of North Carolina. The pond had nearly 12" of muck buildup and required monthly chemical treatments to reduce algae blooms.
Before the Airmax Aeration System was introduced: water samples were taken for phosphorus, nitrogen, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), dissolved oxygen and pond water clarity. Phosphorus and nitrogen are contributors to algae growth while dissolved oxygen and BOD help determine the potential for muck water and nutrient reducing aerobic bacteria. An Airmax PS20 Aeration System was installed and water samples were taken every 30 days. The results speak for themselves.
The Results in 90 Days
Nitrogen & Phosphorus plummeted 90%. Oxygen became saturated throughout the pond and the water clarity dramatically improved. There was also a major reduction in the amount of algae that needed to be treated. The BOD also decreased substantially while the aerobic bacterial activity increased which was responsible for almost 1/4" of muck reduction in only 90 days.
