The Lake Doctors, Inc. is proud to be recognized as one of the top 3 fountain distributors in the United States for AquaMaster Fountains and Aerators, one of the industry leaders for quality & dependable fountains and aerators.

In our environmentally conscious times, today’s aquatic managers are making fountains and aeration, one of the foundations of their water management programs. Healthy lakes or ponds attracts visitors and wildlife while providing a healthy environment for fish. Without oxygen, even a well-maintained lake can suffer from severe algae, unpleasant odors, mosquito problems, and poor appearance. Increasing the oxygen levels enable a natural clean-up process that keep lakes and ponds beautiful and healthy.
During our Annual Sales Meeting last month, we had the pleasure of hosting Bill Morgan with AquaMaster as he recognized our team for outstanding sales and service achievements in 2017 with this commendable award.
Another highlight for The Lake Doctors this year is our inclusion in the 2018 AquaMaster Annual Calendar, showcasing captivating images of different fountain projects submitted by industry professionals. You can find one of our Clearwater FL fountain projects as the March feature of the 2018 calendar of two Etna Volcano fountains.
Is your body of water having reoccurring algae problems that algaecide treatments just can’t seem to fix? Your answer might just be the installation of a device called a pond circulator. A pond circulator is a simple tool where a propeller is attached to a motor and can either be mounted horizontally under a surface float or to a dock or any other hard surface or object. Providing multiple benefits, a circulator will keep your pond or lake mixed, reducing algae and other unsightly weeds and biological contents. Circulators can also be used to push trash and sludge to the shore for easy clean-up and will greatly improve the health and vitality of your water.
We’d like to share a recent success story from one of our accounts on Sanibel Island, in which the installation of a simple circulator helped restore water quality and drastically improve the appearance of the pond.
One of the smaller ponds on the property was having reoccurring algae issues and had been having ongoing problems for quite some time. Our team used multiple algaecide treatments and even tried other preventative methods including; muck digestor pellets, beneficial bacteria, and pond dye. We even performed a physical removal of algae which helped temporarily but the algae soon returned. Each and every pond is comprised of their own unique characteristics and require different treatment plans. After further evaluation, we installed a pond circulator and within days the algae started to clear. Since the installation, the pond has maintained a healthy balance and treatment is only required 3 times per year. Our customer could not be happier with the results and thus have installed fountains and aeration systems in the rest of the account’s lakes and ponds.
