If correct, then, hanging a small sump pump just above the bottom would be at least as effective as an aerator? Probably use a set of stepped pipes to entrain as much water as possible into the flow and have it open a foot below the surface.
no; the idea is to break the surface with as much agitation as possible; just above the bottom won't even affect the surface. Hanging it AT the surface so it's broken, that will do some good. As much agitation as possible; that's how you get the most oxygenation. Ponds and lakes use large area and wind. Us ponders have to augment a little!
