Which Pump Do I Need?

Selecting a pump involves a couple of easy steps:

1) Determine the MAX HEAD in feet (the height to rise above the waterline)

2) Determine the FLOW RATE in GPM (gallons per minute)
    Multiply width of the stream, or if you have no stream the width of the waterfall spillway outlet (in feet) x 36* GPM = flow needed in GPM.
    *36 GPM is a fixed number that you always use.

Example:
Step 1 -
Let's say your pump inlet is 2 feet below the waterline in your skimmer. Let's say the top of your waterfall where the water comes out is 6 feet higher than your pond level. You measure your Max Head from the waterline and not how deep your pump inlet is.

Your Max Head (how high to lift the water) is 6 feet

You can see from the Pump Comparison Chart that a 6 foot lift is within limits under the  Max Head column  for any pump on this page.

Step 2 - Now we need to find the right GPM flow rate. Let's say your waterfall outlet opening is 24 inches wide, or 2 feet, and you have no stream. Multiply 2 times 36 GPM and you get 72 GPM.

Your flow rate is 72 GPM (gallons per minute)
or
Your flow rate is 4,320 GPH (gallons per hour)

Look at the  Flow Rates @ Feet of Head columns  and notice there are values from 5' to 30' and since your water has to rise 6' feet you can't use the 5' column so just move up to the 10' column of values. Important: Always move up to the next higher column and never lower!

Now scroll down that column looking for a pump that provides the GPM you determined you needed which was at least 72 GPM. The first one that fits your need is the EP6700 with a flow rate of 80 GPM at 10' of head.

If multiple pumps fit your application you can compare the cost to operate, outlet size, etc. to finalize your selection. The worse thing you can do is get a pump too small to properly turn over your water fast enough to keep it well aerated and your biological filters working the way that they should. Important: You can always reduce your water flow if it is too fast with a valve, but you can never increase it to make your pond healthier!

This example will also support a stream from your waterfall no more than 2 feet wide. If you have a stream wider than 2 feet you need to increase your GPM. The length of the stream is not a factor. All that matters is how high the water needs to be lifted.

The minimum GPM flow per hour for an Eco Pond is 1.5 times the total gallons per hour. In this case, (4,320/150) x 100 = 2,880 Gallons  So if your ponds total gallons is 2,880 or less you are OK.

Reducing the flow rate of your pump: If you start your pump up and you find your flow rate is too much, you can always install an adjustable flow valve on the output line of the pump plumbing to reduce the flow rate to where you want it. This will not hurt the pump at all and will also save on energy costs. The backpressure from this valve will reduce your energy costs and not hurt the pump in any way or void the warranty. If you install a pump too small and your flow rate is to low there is nothing you can do to improve it except to buy a bigger pump.

Moral of the Story = Never Buy an Undersized Pump

RESTRICTED PLANTS: Some states have bans on certain pond plants. Check the USDA Noxious Plants website prior to purchase. The buyer needs to beware of any regulations on plants that may be restricted. If your order gets confiscated by your state agriculture department we cannot be held responsible.

CLIMATE VARIATIONS: We guarantee our plants will arrive alive and healthy. Pond Plants grow differently depending on where you live. If you took pond plants of the same type, and planted them in different parts of the USA, each plant would grow differently. This is Mother Nature at work. We cannot guarantee that your climate will support long term growth as this varies by location. With experience you will find which pond plants thrive in your USDA Zone. Join our Pond, Watergarden and Plant Forum and ask some questions before you buy is the best advice we can give you.

SUBSTITUTIONS: We reserve the right to substitute Out of Stock plants of equal or greater value unless you specifically request otherwise in the remarks section of your order you submit. We try our very best to update the website availability and show plants that are Out of Stock.
