What is the Pontec PondoCompact Pump?
Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, Pontec PondoCompact range of fountain pumps are small and compact pond pumps. They're reliable and quiet running pumps and can be used for fountains, water features, statues and even bubbling stones.
Why choose a pump from the Pontec PondoCompact range?
Each pump has an adjustable water flow allowing you full control of your feature or fountain and can generate flow rates of up to 5000 lph. Made from high-quality materials, these simple-to-use pumps have suckers on the base to secure the position of the pump. The full pump range allows the connection of 19mm flexible pipework and can generate flow rates which can be adjusted using the integrated flow controllers. You can also have complete trust in the safety and functions, they are TÜV-certified.
How do I clean the pump?
As the inlets of these fountain pumps do not have foam filters, minimal cleaning is required. If necessary, clean the unit with clear water using a soft brush. Recommended cleaning agent for removing stubborn limescale deposits: vinegar and chlorine-free household cleaning agent. After cleaning, thoroughly rinse all parts in clean water.
What fittings will I need to install this pump?
You'll need to consider how you'll get power to your pump. To comply with UK electrical legislation, pond appliances can't be supplied with a fitted, so you'll need to purchase one separately or wire it into an outdoor socket. A 10 m cable is provided, but these do not come with a fitted plug, to allow you to lengthen the cable with a waterproof connector. You'll also need some ribbed anti-kink pond hose and some hose clips to keep the hose firmly attached to the pump.
