Pond pumps

Let your pond ‘breathe’ with a pond pump

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.

AquaForte Pond Pumps overview

AquaForte O-Plus Vario S

The variable speed version of the popular O-Plus series!


Advantages

The AquaForte O-Plus Vario S is designed for underwater applications. With the external controller you can adjust the fl ow (and thus the energy consumption) from 30% to 100%. The controller can also start/stop the pump (pause button). Provided with synchronous motor and wearproof ceramic shaft for long time use. Automatic power-off protection when running dry. When the impeller is blocked it will go into a “lock” position in which the pump does not use power and waits until the blockage is gone. This will prevent a motor burn out.

O-Plus Vario S 10.000 RD722 34-85 6-10 5.5 mtr
O-Plus Vario S 20.000 RD724 70-200 12-22 7.5 mtr
