aerate before it's too late.
Now’s the time to look at a Keeton De-icing Aeration System.
Because once the pond freezes it might be too late.
6 reasons to de-ice your pond or lake this fall.
The benefits of de-icing your pond with a Keeton Deicing Aeration System are numerous, but to enjoy those benefits, it’s imperative that you start the process before the water freezes.

SOLAR POWERED OR ELECTRIC AERATION DE-ICERS
Keeton Industries offers a de-icing aeration system that will fit your needs. Select from our solar powered or electric systems.
Keeton Solar Powered De-icing Aerators
Keeton Industries changed the subsurface aeration market forever when we developed the first de-icing solar powered aeration system. Our patented system is one of a kind. The energy efficient design allows them to be deployed anywhere and provide all of the benefits of a standard deicing aeration system without the need for power.
Keeton Electric De-icing Aerators
Keeton Industries line of electrically powered de-icing aeration systems are the premier brand in the de-icing market. For the last four decades, we have strived to provide our customers with the best quality and value. These systems are by far the quietest systems you can find anywhere and will give you lasting results!
A correctly designed and installed pond deicing system has multiple benefits; some of those benefits extend to 12 months of the year. For instance, improved water quality, reduced sludge/muck accumulation, better fish survival year around, and pond odor reduction.
There are two methods used to de-ice ponds on the market. One is mounted propellers (ice eaters) that direct water flow from the warmer lower reaches of the pond to the surface. The warmer water reduces ice formation.
Keeton Industries addresses pond de-icing with a more efficient process. Our micro-bubble aeration diffusers create a water flow as the bubbles rise to the surface. The air in the water column makes the water lighter, so the warmer water from the bottom rises up to the surface, reducing ice formation.
Both methods of de-icing will work well, the primary difference is in power consumption. Since air has a much lower mass (weight) than water, it takes less horsepower to pump the air than it does to pump the water with a propeller.
Other advantages of de-icing with air bubbles: no power in the water, longer line runs are possible with air tubing than with a power cable (more flexibility in placement), and of course easy maintenance with the equipment on the shoreline instead of in the water.
