Vertex Aeration Systems
Vertex Aeration Systems
Aquatic Environmental Services is an authorized dealer for Vertex fountains and aeration systems since 1998. AES has installed hundreds of Vertex aeration systems to improve the water quality on lakes throughout the southeast. Lakes that are “stratified” inhibit levels of beneficial bacteria and their breakdown of organics. As bottom muck accumulation increases and excessive nutrients are readily available for plant/algae growth, conditions become favorable for the production of noxious gases.
Vertex’s advanced diffusers design creates bubbles as small as 500 microns in diameter that form an ultra-wide column of upward moving water, “turning the lake over” and allowing oxygen to be absorbed at the lake’s surface.
Vertex diffusers continuously lift bottom water to the surface where poisonous gases are expelled and oxygen is absorbed. Stratification and all its resulting problems are eliminated. Colonies of beneficial bacteria once again flourish along the bottom while nutrient levels decline and water clarity increases. Oxygen depletions caused by spring/fall turnovers are eliminated and sport fisheries are improved and fish can expand their territory into the formerly oxygen –deprived portions of the lake.

Every lake has its own unique characteristics and design, Aquatic Environmental Services can provide a wide number of modifications to meet your needs or requirements. Using aerial mapping, we can provide you with aeration specifications and design as well as comprehensive performance calculations including pumpage, CFM, PSI, and turnover rate.
