AquaForte offers an extensive range of pond pumps suitable for various applications, such as filters, waterfalls, streams and fountains. But what does a pond pump actually do?
- Provides water circulation in the pond, so the water absorbs oxygen better.
- Pumps the (polluted) pond water to the mechanical and biological (pre) filter and the UV-C filter.
- Creates easily a fountain, stream or waterfall.
What should you pay attention to when choosing your pond pump?
- Dry or wet setup. The advantage of a dry setup is that the pond pump is free and easy to maintain. In a wet setup, the pond pump is in the pond or in a filter under water level. The advantage of this is that the pump is neatly concealed and the hoses are less visible.
- Head: the number of meters a pump can pump maximum. Pay close attention to the loss in head that the piping and equipment entails.
- Capacity (litres of pond water per hour). This capacity depends on the head that the pump has to bridge.
- Energy consumption. The lower the wattage, the lower the electricity bill.
