Posted: Mon Dec 19, 2011 1:17 pm Post subject: Which Pump and Brand for Outdoor Pond
I am putting together the items needed for setting up an outdoor pond.
The container for the same is having a capacity of 1500 litres.
I am planning to make my own pond filter which would be ' in pond filter'
Which type of pump would be required to take the water up to a height
of 5 ft to create a waterfall into the pond ?
Kindly give me suggestions on the pump and filter.
How long could the pump be kept running ?
What about power consumption and heating up?
Are there any inexpensive brands in the market that would serve my purpose ?
If so please suggest the Brand/type of pump and also name of supplier in Mumbai.

Just go to any electrical shop and tell them your requirements. I got a pump meant to be in a fountain for my filter. Its pretty dumb though, supposed to shoot water over a meter, but just shoots a feet. I got it for 100rs. We mostly get Chinese brands, but most of them aint costly and are good VFM.

I framed the sentence wrong
I meant that, it is a fountain pump. But I am using it in my filter, internal filter.And yes it runs 24x7. Hasn't stopped for more than 2 hours from the past few months. Before putting it in my filter I tested it in a bucket to know how much force it ll be putting in my tank.
