Choosing the right water pump for your Koi pond can make all the difference in the world.
In order to maintain a healthy environment for your Koi pond or water garden, you must run your water pump through your filter 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Naturally it is important to pick the right water pump for your Koi pond or water garden.
When choosing a pump, whether it be a Submersible Pump or a Dry Surface Pump be sure that the pump that you are thinking about buying will do the job properly.
Submersible pumps are best suited to small to medium sized ponds with about 200 - 800 gallons of water.
Submersible pumps are often the best choice because they connect easily to most of the submersible filters that are available for small to medium sized ponds.
Submersible pump flow rates range from 250 GPH to as high as 4,100 GPH for a larger waterfall pump. Generally, the ideal submersible pond pump will circulate the total volume of the pond at least once per hour. For example, if you pond is 500 gallons, you would want to go with at least a 500 GPH pump..
