What Kind of Pump Do I Need For a Pond?

water pumpPonds are a great feature for your outdoor area. They create a little oasis and selecting the correct pump to purchase from your local pump shop is vital, so that everything runs as it needs to. The best solution to picking the right pump is to consult an expert for your specific needs. Here are a few tips that can help you narrow down your choices.

How Big Does My Pond Pump Need to Be?

Selecting a pump for your pond includes choosing one that can adequately service the amount of water you will have within the pond. Experts suggest that the pond should be circulated at least once or twice per hour, so you will need a pump that is powerful enough to handle that. 

Why Do I Need a Pump in My Pond?

The right pump purchased from a pump shop will ensure that there is proper movement in your pond’s water. If you fail to have adequate pond movement this can cause stagnation, as well as algae overgrowth and mosquito issues. Mosquitos especially can be a health problem and are a general nuisance. If you plan to keep fish or other living animals in your pond, the oxygen from a water pump is vital to keep them healthy and alive.

Submersible or Non-Submersible Pond Pumps

Non-submersible pumps tend to be more energy-efficient and because they are outside of the pond, they are easier to service. Submersible pumps are quieter and certain models can be used to drain your pond as well.
