Why do I need a filter pump in my pond?

Pond filters are an important part of a pond, especially one with a large population of fish. They help to remove waste that builds up from plants or fish and, in doing so, keep your water clear. These filters are a hassle-free way to maintain healthy pond water, which will support your fish and plants a lot better. The main purpose of having a pond filter is to make the water as suitable as possible for any pond life, and the Swell DC Filter Pump is a fantastic way of doing so.

Why should I buy this filter pump?

The Swell DC Filter Pump is completely adjustable and easy to maintain, with easy-to-use controls that can change the flow rate. The flow rate of these pumps can be set anywhere between 1-100%. This is great for seasonal flow changing and for a potential future pond expansion. There's also a handy 5-minute pause function that makes for easy maintenance. The Swell DC Filter Pump also has a solids-handling capacity of 4-8mm, depending on which model you choose, which will assist with removing some larger waste and debris with no concern - another fantastic way to keep your pond healthy and clear.

How will energy efficiency benefit me?

Energy efficiency is an important part of choosing a pond filter pump, as these pumps are usually left running 24/7 which, with a less energy efficient pump, can cost you a lot of money. By choosing a low-wattage, adjustable pump like the Swell DC Filter Pump, you can be sure you're saving money while running your pump. This can be particularly handy for seasonal changes, as well as being able to future-proof planned pond expansions.

Also, please note the following:

  • To comply with UK electrical legislation, these pond pumps are NOT supplied with a fitted plug. You'll have to purchase a fitted plug separately.
  • The pond pump's impeller is a consumable part that, over time, can wear down. This component is not covered by the guarantee on the pond pump. A spare can be purchased as and when required, though.
