The Submersible Pump Is Designed To Be Completely Submerged In

  •   Choosing a pump for a pond or fountain is an important step in ensuring that you maintain normal water flow. Failure to maintain proper water circulation can lead to stagnation, accumulation of algae and mosquitoes. If there are fish, plants, or other aquatic organisms in the pond, the water must be kept healthy by evenly distributing oxygen and other nutrients.

      Types of pond pumps

      There are two main types of pond pumps: Stainless Steel Submersible Sewage Pump and external (unbuffered) pumps, also known as centrifugal pumps. Depending on the application, each pump has specific advantages.

      Submersible pond pump

      The submersible pump is designed to be completely submerged in the deepest part of the pond. They can be placed directly in your pond or in a skimmer box or pond vault. The size of the submersible pump varies from 50 to 5,000 gallons per hour. They are easy to install and are sometimes a more economical solution for smaller ponds (up to 1000 gallons of water). They are also quiet and can be used to drain ponds. If you have fish or other aquatic life in your pond, you may want to consider a model that does not use oil, as this may cause the risk of rupture of the pump seal and leakage of oil coolant into the water.

      Centrifugal Pool Pump

      External or centrifugal pond pumps are reliable and energy-saving options. They are installed in a dry location near the pond. The external pond pump is suitable for larger ponds (over 1000 gallons). Compared with submersible pumps, they are usually louder and more complicated to install, but they are easier to maintain.

      When choosing Small Submersible Pump, please keep in mind that pumps have different cable lengths. Make sure the power cord is long enough to pass through the pond and plug it into a place away from water. Some electrical codes state that the outlet of the water feature must be at least 6 feet away from the water. It is recommended that you avoid using extension cords. However, if one must be used, make sure it is suitable for outdoor use and insert a ground fault circuit breaker (GFCI) to shut off immediately in the event of an overload.
