What are Swell Filter Pumps?
Swell Filter Pumps are our best-selling solids handling pond pumps that are low maintenance and highly energy efficient. Suitable for small to large ponds, Swell Filter Pumps have flow rates from 1500-17000 lph. They can pass particles up to 8 mm, come with a 10 m cable and have a 40 mm hose size. Made in Germany, these fish pond pumps are designed for pumping water from your pond to a pond filter, waterfall or stream. With an excellent reputation with our customers, these filter pumps keep fish and the pond healthy.
What are the benefits of solids handling pumps?
Solids handling pumps use the entire pump cage to prevent large items (or fish) from being sucked in. Small particles such as sludge, grit and debris can pass straight through. Easy to maintain, they provide a more consistent flow of water to the filter, keeping the pond and fish healthy.
Can pumps block?
If enough particles larger than 4 mm pass through the pump cage, they can cause a blockage. While this can break some pumps, the Swell Filter Pumps are equipped with a thermal cut-off switch that temporarily disables the pump to prevent lasting damage.
What size pump do I need for my pond?
Selecting what size pond pump to run your filtration system is one of the most important things to consider when setting up your pond. Pump flow rates drop when you 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. Check out our helpful guide on choosing the right size pump for your pond here.
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.
