What is the Swell Variable Flow Pond Pump Premium?
The Swell Variable Flow Pond Pump Premium range is made up of several flexible filter pumps that can be put to almost any use. The pumps range in strength from the 75W SWLA0745 with a 10,000lph maximum flow rate to the 500W SWLA0747 with a 30,000lph maximum flow rate. All models in the range have a 5mm solids handling capacity and an 'A' energy efficiency rating which makes them cheaper to run than other pond pumps.
Please note: As a variable pump, this range can be turned from 100% flow to 1%. 100% will match the maximum flow rate of the pump. 1% will be 0.01x the maximum flow rate of the pump.
Why should I buy this variable pump?
The Swell Variable Flow Pond Pump Premium range is both versatile and durable. It's ideal for pond keepers with a large population of fish as they're adjustable so you can pass the correct flow rate through a pond filter or waterfall. By reducing the flow rate you will be also reducing electricity consumption. With the option to perform as either an internal or external pump, this range is a great choice for pond builders looking to experiment and try different pond configurations as well. The Swell Variable Flow Pond Pump Premium comes with a hose tail allowing it to be connected to regular anti kink pond hose, as well as a screw thread to allow you to plumb it in to hard pipework.
Which Swell Variable Flow Pond Pump Premium should I buy?
The Swell Variable Flow Pond Pump Premium range runs from medium-sized models, suitable for most pond builds, to large pumps capable of rivalling many high-end professional pumps. Below are several tables to help you choose the right pump for your pond depending on your flow rate and maximum fountain height needs.
How do I set up the Swell Variable Flow Pond Pump Premium?
The Swell Variable Flow Pond Pump Premium range can be installed in a few different ways. If you're creating an internal, filter or fountain pump, simply hook up the 10m power line and position the pump wherever you want it in your pond. However, if you want to use the Swell Variable Flow Pump Premium as an external pump you will need to prime it first before it's ready for use.
How do I clean this pond pump?
Thanks to a large pre-filter strainer cage, cleaning the Swell Variable Flow Pond Pump Premium is quick and easy. Just detach the basket and give it a good scrub in a bucket of pond water. Occasionally, you might want to open the impeller housing while the filter basket is off to clean the impeller in the same pond water while protecting the brittle ceramic shaft.
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.
