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 a pump on an unlevel floor.
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.
