What is a feature pump?
Feature pumps allow you to create beautiful, soothing plumes or sprays with water features, waterfalls and fountains. Powerful and compact, these efficient water feature pumps take up minimal space and can be used both indoors and outdoors.
Why should I buy a feature pump?
Not only do water feature pumps bring sound and movement to your garden, they keep the water circulating around your pond or fountain which keeps it fresh and helps prevent the build-up of algae.
What are the main types of feature pumps?
There aren't many types of feature pumps however there are a few things to think about such as the power of the pump and brand. You may also want to consider the type of water feature you want to create and what size pump you'll need. This all depends on whether you want to create a fountain or waterfall. Swell's own range of feature pumps are ideal for smaller compact features with flow rates of up to 6000lph. Whereas Oases' high-performance pumps can move 12000lph making them ideal for larger features and even fountains.
What features should I look for?
Look out for water feature pumps that let you adjust the flow rate, this will allow you to keep the water flowing regularly but then increase the flow rate when you want your water feature to be the main attraction. Often compact, feature pumps must be placed near to the feature as they run at a low-pressure rate. This also means that they are relatively cheap to run, so provide long-lasting performance without large bills.
