HIBLOW USA Helps Homeowners Prevent Fish Kill

HIBLOW pumps provide subsurface pond aeration that helps keep fish alive in the winter and promotes a healthy pond overall.
SALINE, Mich. - Dec. 6, 2021 - PRLog -- Fish kill is a common occurrence in many northern states during the harsh, cold winters. As the temperature falls, ice can form across the entire pond and stay for months. This sets off a chain of events that can deplete oxygen levels and ultimately suffocate fish. Let's dive into the science behind the reduction in dissolved oxygen levels and provide a simple solution to keep your fish alive and healthy.

Submerged plants and microscopic algae (phytoplankton) are nature's primary source for oxygen in a pond. With full ice coverage, sunlight is far less likely to reach aquatic plants and often can't produce as much oxygen.

Normally plants supply the ecosystem more oxygen than they consume. With lack of sunlight, plants consume more oxygen than they produce, leaving less for fish and other organisms.

Nature's other primary source for infusing oxygen into a pond is the atmosphere. With full ice coverage, water has no contact with the atmosphere and can't absorb oxygen as it normally would.

During autumn when the leaves fall and organisms start to die, ponds accumulate organic matter at the bottom. Beneficial aerobic bacteria eat away at the "muck", and as a bi-product, harmful gasses such as methane, hydrogen sulfide, and C02 are released into the water column and eventually into the atmosphere. If a pond is iced over, the toxic gasses are trapped and start to eliminate dissolved oxygen.

Subsurface aeration – or bottom diffused aeration – is an energy efficient, quiet, and highly effective process of increasing dissolved oxygen levels and circulating water throughout the pond.
