Our dual-purpose inline pumps are incredibly reliable, built for fountains or ponds, and designed for external or submersible use. We highly recommend using a priming pot with external inline pumps, or at the very least, placing the pump below the water reservoir to keep it primed.
What is an inline pond pump?
Your inline pump is the driving force of your ecosystem. An electric motor turns the ceramic shaft impeller, drawing water in one end of the pump and out the other. But inline pumps do not need to be submersed and can be used outside of your pond or fountain basin.
This is necessary to maintain balance and filter out excess minerals that might harm fish and other pond life. Water flow depends on the size and power of the impeller.
How many GPH does a 500-gallon pond need?
Regardless of the size of your pond, we recommend that water is circulated at least once per hour. So, if you have a 500-gallon pond, you’ll need 500 GPH at the height of discharge. Remember that required GPH varies if you have a pressurized filter or any specific features like a waterfall.
How deep should an inline pond pump be?
Modern inline pond pumps are so reliable that maintenance isn’t a constant hassle or top concern. But a general rule is that your inline pump should be placed outside your pond or fountain and below the water level OR should be next to a priming pot.as deep as necessary to keep it primed and running effectively.
