Choosing the right water pump for your pond can make all of the
difference in the world. Just because a pump may cost less to buy, it
is not always the way to go.
The most important thing to remember is the electrical usage when
looking for a water pump for your pond. 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.
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.
