At Pond Haven, we're privileged to collaborate with the most esteemed pond fountain manufacturers in the pond & lake sector. In this article, we've curated our top fountains for 2023, categorizing them under: Aesthetics and Aeration.

The North Star Fountain Aerator adds an elegant, trumpet-shaped water feature to any pond or lake along with powerful aeration, debris reduction and reliable algae control.
The powerful North Star moves an impressive 600 gallons of water per minute, creating a strong surface current to help oxygenate water and eliminate algae and debris.
