In order to maintain proper flow, circulation and aeration of your pond water, and to keep clean water moving into the pond, you will definitely require a good pump. How to choose the right pond pump
Essentially, there are two different pump options you can choose from: an external pump for a waterfall (aquafall) or a submersible pump. Your choice will likely depend on whether you prefer the soothing sound and look of a waterfall and your budget.
Choosing the right water pump for your pond can make all of the difference in the world. Just because a pump may cost less to buy, it is not always the way to go.
The most important thing to remember is the electrical usage when looking for a water pump for your pond.
In order to maintain a healthy environment for your Koi pond or water garden, you MUST run your water pump through your filter 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When shopping for a pump, you will need to get the right size for your pond. Pumps are measured according to their pumping capacity, either in gallons per hour (GPH) or gallons per minute (GPM).
