“Moving” Water will Reduce the Outside Noise
“Moving” Water Breaks the Outside Noise
If you happen to live along a busy street or near a highway or a water feature with moving water in the vicinity of your house, the noise from the traffic or the water feature can “penetrate” the ground and/or water of your pond and disturb or “stress” the fishes. To counter these noise, use large pumps or aerators (as well as air stones) that will really agitate (and at the same time, oxygenate) your pond’s water. “Agitated” water does not absorb a lot of the “outside” noise.
