For a healthy pond or water feature, a reliable and
efficient pond pump is an absolute necessity. Two types of pumps are available
for ponds and water gardens: submersible pumps and external pumps. Submersible
pumps are popular with many people because they’re simple to use and setup, in
addition to being cost-effective solutions. Because they work underwater,
submersible pumps are also easier to hide than exterior pumps — a serious
benefit when you’re concerned about maintaining a clean appearance that’s free
of visible wires and tubing. Many of these aquatic submersible pumps can also
be placed in pond skimmers to make maintenance even easier.
Dozens of pond pumps are available from a variety of
manufacturers, giving you a wide range of choices in submersible pumps. Ponds
small or large will benefit from these hard-working, tough pumps. Many are
available with free shipping right to your door.
It’s crucial to order a pump that’s the right size for your
pond or water feature. In general, a suitable pump should be able to filter all
of the water in approximately one hour for a 4,000-5,000 gallon pond, and about
two hours for a larger one, depending on the types of fish that inhabit your
pond and other variables.
