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 from 4mm to 8 mm, come with a 10 m cable and have a 40 mm hose size. 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.
- Low maintenance and energy efficient
- Flow rates of 1500-17000lph
- Solids handling capacity of up to 4-8mm
- Thermal cut-off to prevent damage from blockages
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 come with this pump?
Each Pipe Installation Kit comes with a hose pipe for each pump, plus two hose clips and some Anti-Leak PTFE Pipe Fitting Tape. The hose diameter included is compatible with most pond appliances but please double-check compatibility with your pond filter before purchase. 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 socket.
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.
