What features do Swell Fountain Pumps Maxi have?

A telescopic fountain extension ensures a vertical spray pattern and operates on a pivoting ball joint for ease of use. These reliable pond fountain pumps have an integral strainer to keep debris out of the pump and protect components, the unit has a ceramic shaft that is non-corrosive even when used in saltwater. They also have a stepped hosetail adaptor to connect 15-20mm flexi pipe and each pump has a thermal cut-off switch to protect the pump should it become blocked or run dry.

How do I select a fountain pump?

Fountain pumps come in various sizes and you should choose them based on how much water your fountain holds and lifts within a given time. This measurement determines the maximum head height rating, which is how high the pump will need to lift or push the water to reach the fountainhead. For optimal performance, choose a pump with a maximum head height that is higher than your fountain for strong water flow into the fountain and out of the fountainhead.

How do fountain pumps work?

Fountain pond pumps will keep the water circulating around your pond, this keeps the water oxygenated. A fountain pond pump's primary component is its impeller which pumps water in and forces it out. The water forced from the pond pump is delivered to the fountain where it's sprayed into the air through a fountain head. The water that is sprayed into the air will then fall back onto the fountain and drain back into the water.

What is a telescopic fountain extension?

The Swell Fountain Maxi range are quality products that come with all the pond equipment suitable for any pond project. This great range features a telescopic extension pole. This allows you to extend the fountain height to your requirements and is topped with a ball joint. A ball joint is used to position the pump on an unlevel floor.

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.
