The new Oase Aqamax Eco Premium filter and watercourse pumps are perhaps the best pond pump on the market, and a favourite of Swell UK customers for their reliablilty and their discounted Swell price.
The Oase AquaMax Eco Premium range of pond pumps offers the top quality performance you would expect from such a widely trusted manufacturer, with lower running costs and greater efficiency. The flow rate remains reliable even at very low settings.
The 12000 and 16000 models have a seasonal flow control which means that the pump can be turned down automatically in winter, saving energy and lowering running costs by up to 30%. The greater efficiency is helped by a more streamlined filter case design.
All models can be electronically adjusted when used in conjunction with an FM Master 3 Remote Switchbox, and have a supplemental mechanically adjustable second inlet. This second inlet is used for running satellite strainers and surface skimmers.
The Eco Premium has a 5 year guarantee (3 years standard, plus a further 2 years upon registration of the product) and offers a unique patented frost protection system to ensure that the pump remains undamaged even at very low temperatures. Oase's Environmental Function Control protects the pump against dry-running and blockages.
It can be used dry (outside of the pond) - with it's quiet running operation it is ideal for swimponds and bathing ponds, and works in temperatures as low as -20 C.
This model boasts 25% lower running costs than previous models, and has very low energy consumption through use of an energy efficient motor.
The Premium models have larger filter intake holes for better filtration, providing displacement of coarse debris particles up to 11mm.
Each model offers flow rates as suggested by the pump name: the 4,000 has a maximum flow rate of 4,000 ltrs per hour, the 8,000 has a maximum flow rate of 8,000 ltrs per hour and so on. The maximum output will vary according to lift (total height above the waterline to which the water is to be pumped) and total distance pumped.
