Filter pond pumps
Filter pond pumps are designed to pump water through your filter, so the undesirable particles are removed leaving you with clean pond water. Filter pond pumps are designed to pump water both in and outside of the pond, for example to filters and watercourses.
A filter pond pump has a strainer cage to allow large particles to pass through the pump and to the filter. Remember just pumping water to the filter is a waste of time - you want to be pumping all the undesirables in your pond through the filter. They are fairly maintenance free but need some spot cleaning to keep their efficiency levels to an optimum. Some pumps such as the Oase Aquamax Eco Premium have additional inlets to allow surface skimmers or satellite strainers to be added.
Fountain pumps are not there to assist filters but to provide water to your features such as fountains. They typically have telescopic tubes to allow for different water depths. Often they come with a number of fountains heads in popular spray displays like bell and foaming jets. Some fountain pumps are also a "jack of all trades" with secondary outlets so you can deliver water to both a fountain head and a filter. Top models include the Oase Aquarius and the Blagdon Midipond.
Feature pumps are designed specifically to deliver the required water flow to your garden water features. They come in various sizes from the smallest spouting frog to the largest obelisk display. If you are just looking for a small, gentle effect you can consider our floating and solar power pumps. Our feature pumps range from the tiny Bermuda 450 Feature Pump to the larger Oase Aquarius Universal 12000.
Choosing and maintaining your pump
Whether you are a veteran of pond care or a total newbie, the start of pond season is a time to restock and check your equipment is in tip top order. Buy the best quality pond pump you can afford but then remember this is a piece of kit that has to survive in the most extreme environment there is - under water.
A little regular TLC means your pump will stay reliable for years to come. And when it comes to maintenance all you really need is a screwdriver and a few paper towels. Cleaning all the blanket weed, algae and gunk out of your pump will help your pump to do its job. Pumps can get badly clogged up with bits of mud, sticks and slime which obviously aren't going to do them any favours.
Some pond pumps should be removed in winter while others can be left in the pond running at a lower capacity. With a pump running gently in winter the warmer water at the bottom of the pond can be circulated throughout.
Circulation and filtration
Filter pumps like the Bermuda Filterforce, Oase Aquamax and Hozelock Aquaforce are designed to filter the waste particles out of your pond. The more fish and vegetation you have the more waste there will be and if you aren't careful this waste can upset the water chemistry.
As your fish produce waste, the waste gives off ammonium which is converted into nitrites by the beneficial bacteria you have created in the filtration media of your pond filter. These nitrites are absorbed by plants and algae. This is known as the nitrogen cycle.
You should choose a pump based on the flow rate you need for your pond, which will depend largely on the size of your pond.
