Reduction of Nutriments for Algae

In a lake or a pond, tailing plants in decomposition, as well as the organic contribution from the waters feeding of the lake, or runoff from adjacent land, settle down, forming a layer of organic sediments that increases the oxygen demand of the lake, and generates new nutrients bioavailable for the growth of plants and aquatic algae.
This is the reason why problems are generated in lakes. In many cases these sludge is absorbed by the irrigation systems and can cause obstruction of pumps and causing serious problems, diseases, and even in some cases the death of grass, because these sediments often contain heavy metals, anaerobic bacteria and decaying organic matter.
The anaerobic conditions created in the bottom of the lake by the organic sludge, can lead to unwanted odors due to the generated gases, such as methane or hydrogen sulphide.
Thanks to the installation of ozoaeration in a deep lake, you can get several effects because we influence in three key factors: oxygen, nutrients and temperature.
In disseminate large quantities of oxygen, we are able to create and strengthen a large colony of aerobic bacteria, which work by cleaning the lake of organic nutrients and waste.
Apart from the attack of aerobic bacteria, we have the oxidative effect of oxygen itself on organic matter and a much more powerful oxidizing effect, the clarifier and deodorant ozone effect. We also assure phosphorus to be able to leave the sediment.
Finally, due to the high incidence of recirculation creates by the deep aeration, eliminating the stratification, thus lowering the temperature of the surface water and intensively oxygenating deep areas.
A well dimensioned ozoaeration will prevent only the deposit of organic sludge, otherwise, with the initial introduction of contribution aerobic bacteria, which produces a reduction in existing sludge from several of centimeters per year.


In the ecology of the lake, two of the main macronutrients are the phosphorus and nitrogen.
In fact, the phosphorus is considered individually identified as the largest contributor to the growth of aquatic plants. It should be borne in mind that one gram of phosphorus will produce 100 grams og algal biomass. Depending on the increase in the level of nutrients in the water, increases the production of algae and weeds. This is a serious problem, both from the environmental point of view as esthetically.

Under conditions of low oxygen, anaerobic bacteria transform the sediment releasing on undesirable substances such as methane, ammonia and hydrogen sulfide; and back to solvable state in unwanted nutrients water, so it’s very important to maintain the stability of high oxygenation conditions to maintain a lake in perfect condition.

This layer of “compost”, acts as a nutrient for algae and weeds, as well as greatly consumes the oxygen in the bottom of the lake. A low level of oxygen will cause deactivation of the natural mechanism of biodegradation of organic nutrients (aerobic digestion).
Aeration in the bottom of a lake strengthens and maintains the activity of aerobic bacterial colony, which greatly helps reduce the nutrients of the lake.
High levels of oxygen in the bottom of the lake will prevent the release of phosphorus from sediments, thereby cutting the internal largest sources of nutrients. The effect that this product is due to a chemical reaction of oxidation, which affect also other contaminants such as iron or manganese, and represents the stage of soluble to insoluble form that cannot be assimilated by plants.

If aeration is complemented by the introduction of ozone (the most powerful natural oxidant usable), through the process of Ozoaeration, this effect is multiplied, which is added to the effect of these as refining and disposal odors, as well as the reduction of organic matter. Ozone self-decomposed into oxygen, which also contributes to be a better oxygenation of the water.

Another essential nutrient for algae is carbon dioxide, because it is absolutely necessary for photosynthesis. A deep well-designed aeration will cause a drastic reduction of CO2 present in the water, by reducing exponentially the possibility of proliferation of aquatic plants.

Elimination of mosquitoes

After the installation of an ozoaeration system, we prevent the proliferation of mosquitoes and other aquatic larvae, which cause various effects:


  • The first is the reduction of organic nutrients that cause the growth of larvae.
  • The second effect is the improvement of the living conditions for natural predators of insects such as fish.
  • The third of these effects, is the most important, is the continues elimination of the water surface, which makes impossible the necessary conditions for larvae evolution, as they develop floating in the surface because they breathe air and need calm waters to maintain this balance between the shooting and the aquatic part, so that, with the movement of water it is not viable the development of larvae on the surface of water.

The ozoaireation is completely different in this aspect to any type of aeration due to the incorporation of ozone; which is recognized as the best existing system to eliminate the color of any type of water, thanks to its extreme oxidizing effect.
This effect is added also, although in a much softer way, significantly to the oxidizing character of oxygen, providing important differences in the clarity of lakes, reservoirs and ponds.
