Managing Irrigation Ponds
Irrigation ponds left unmanaged can lose 1-5 inches or 2.5-5 centimeters of storage capacity a year due to sludge build-up and cause clogged pumps and irrigations systems. High nutrient levels in irrigation ponds can also lead toward turf damage, while poor water quality will often lead toward foul odors, fish kills, unsightly aquatic algae and weeds. The costs and time associated to repair damage can add up quick impacting your bottom line.
Effluent and Reclaimed Water; Otterbine can help with our golf course pond fountains and aerators.
Scientific evidence indicates that aeration can help "soften" hard water or lower high pH. This is due in part to mixing carbon dioxide enriched waters from the lake bottom up into the water column. Application studies show that Otterbine aeration systems in effluent ponds reduced iron levels from 17 PPM to .02 PPM (mg\l). Remember, not all floating fountains are aeration systems, and not all aeration systems are created equal. Some manufacturers claim to aerate, but they simply can't compete with Otterbine. Make sure when selecting an aeration system to pick a manufacture that has independent testing. Independent testing proves that Otterbine High Volume Industrial Pond Aerators beat the competition; delivering over 900 gpm or 198 m3/hr and providing 3.3lbs or 1.5kg or oxygen per horsepower hour.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY:
"We’ve invested heavily in the 2010 development and the lake will literally be the focal point of the tournament, so we need it to look its best.
I’ve worked with Otterbine in the past so consulted with them to find the most efficient, aesthetically-pleasing and cost-effective solution.”
"The unit is low profile, more inconspicuous than an irrigation control box and very quiet.
The Otterbine Air Flo has eliminated the need to contract a lake management service and allows the grounds department to concentrate on turf grass.”
"Having used other lake aerators in the past,
the Otterbine lake fountain has proven to be the most reliable, with the greatest longevity.”
"As an Audubon International Signature course, water quality is important at Cateechee Golf Club. We have a 10 million gallon effluent water holding pond on the golf course that initially presented problems with algae and low oxygen.
These problems lead to odors and fish kills. We installed two Otterbine aerators and one Otterbine sub-aerator about ten years ago. These units solved our issues and have been virtually problem free. I highly recommend these units.”
"Since we've added the fountains, we don't have algae problems any longer. Members of the community actually walk out of their way to go by the lakes now because they provide very pleasing sights and sounds.
Not only have the aesthetics improved 100 percent, we're saving money by not having to buy any chemicals to treat the lakes.”
"The quality, durability, and functionality are unequaled...
our water quality has improved by using Otterbine.”
"We are very pleased with the performance of all four Otterbine aerators that have been operating in our ponds since 1996 when the golf course opened.
Otterbine aerators circulate a high volume of water generating oxygen for a healthy pond for fish and wildlife.”
