What are Swell Filter Deluxe Pumps?
The Swell Filter Pump Deluxe is a modern, compact and energy-efficient pump that can run pond filters, watercourses and waterfalls. Coming in a variety of sizes based on their flow rate output, these filter pumps can move an impressive 4800-16000 lph and can handle up to 8 mm solids. They come with a 10 m cable, 40 mm hose size and are suitable for both dry sited and immersed in water. With a strainer cage for easy maintenance, this pump has a built-in thermal cut-off switch to protect the pump. We recommend using hose clips to secure the hose.
What are the benefits of solids handling pumps?
A solids handling pump will be able to move solid particles such as sludge, leaves and grit. It will pump out any waste or matter using the pump cage and prevent any large items such as fish from being sucked in. They keep the pond and fish healthy and bring a consistent flow of water to the filter.
Can pumps block?
The Swell Filter Pump Deluxe will allow up to 8 mm particles to pass through the pump cage. If larger pieces of debris or sludge pass through, it will cause a blockage and the pumps thermal cut-off switch will disable the pump to prevent lasting damage.
What size pump do I need for my pond?
Selecting the right size pond pump can be a little tricky. Pump flow rates drop when you attempt to pump higher and further than the pond, so you need to consider these effects. You should aim to purchase a pump that meets the maximum flow rate of your filter at its height above pond level.
Please note: The impeller in this pump is a consumable part. With this being the only moving part of your pond pump, it is exposed to a lot of friction which can cause it to wear down and break over time. This component is not covered by the guarantee and can be purchased as and when required.
