How To Choose The Best Pond Pump

When you’re planning to build a pond one of the first things that you need to think about is the pond water pump.

The decision will depend on the size of the pond, flow rate required and efficiency of the water pump.

Tip 1: The minimum flow rate should be 1/2 of your pond volume. Sometimes even this is not enough.

Tip 2: If you have a waterfall in your pond, you’ll need to increase the size of your pump.

This depends on the design, size and purpose of your pond.

  1. How long the pump will last
  2. How often it needs to be cleaned
