What are the benefits of solids handling pumps?
The benefit of solids-handling pumps is that they are lower maintenance. The pump cage sits around the pump and helps protect larger items, such as leaves, fish, newts, stones, from being sucked inside. All of the Filter Pump Premium range will suck debris smaller than 8 mm through the pump and will pump into the filter where it can be removed from the pond, keeping pond water clean and clear.
Can filter pumps block?
If the filter pump blocks up, the pump has a built-in thermal cut-out which turns the pump off when it overheats. When the blockage is removed the pump automatically starts again.
What size pump do I need for my pond?
Choosing a pump for your pond is an important step to ensure you maintain proper circulation of clean water. It is essential that the water is kept healthy and clear. You should aim to purchase a pump that meets the maximum flow rate of your filter at its height above pond level.

What fittings will I need to install this filter pump?
You'll need to consider how you'll get power to your pump. 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 hose clips to keep the hose firmly attached to the pump.
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.

To comply with UK electrical legislation, pond appliances can't be supplied with a fitted plug, so you'll need to purchase one separately or wire it into an outdoor plug socket.
