 Could  any  one  direct  me  to  a  seller  who  sells  submersible  pond  pumps  which  could  pump  about  500+  gallons/hr  to  about  4  feet  high.
 
 The  pump  is  intented  to  pump  water  to  a  biofiltera  placed  ouside  the  pond.  
 
 Thanks  in  advance.  Smile

 Hey!!!
    Rather  than  a  Submersible  pump,  You  can  go  for  an  external   Texmo  or  Texmaco  pump's  which  are  used  for  water  transfers  which  are  of  the  flow  rate  that  you  want.  I  have  seen  100  W  pumps  which  i  feel  should  suffice.
 
 You  can  get  them  in  SP  road  of  bangalore.

 Thank  you  very  much  for  the  reply  rgg  Thumb Up,  it  is  very  much  appreciated.  But  don't  you  think  100W  is  a  bit  too  power  consuming  considering  the  fact  that  these  pumps  are  meant  to  work  for  almost  all  day.  
 
 Submersibles  are  designed  specifically  for  this  purpose  are  seen  more  power  efficient  which  comes  anything  within  15-  45  watts  specs.  I've  bidded  on  one  at  ebay.co.uk  but  the  seller  don't  ship  internationally  I  might  need  the  help  of  some  of  my  UK  based  friends  for  it.  If  nothing  comes  up  I'll  b  going  for  it,  hope  I  win  it.
 
 In  the  meanwhile  if  someone  comes  across  any  Indian  suppliers  pls  do  let  me  know.
 
 Thanks
 Arun

 Try  the  water  cooler  pumps,  they  are  best  cheap,  will  not  draw  that  much  current  and  will  give  you  the  flowrate  required.

 Yes  even  those  will  do...

 i  was  talking  about  these  ones  only  and  are  reliable  and  come  with  a  min  1  year  warranty..

 Thanks  for  the  replies  discusboy  and  joyban.   Very Happy  
 
 discusboy,
 Yes  I'm  still  interested  to  know  the  price  range  of  those,  I  could  consider  those  next  time  or  recommend  it  to  others.  The  one  I  won  in  ebay  too  gives  1  year  manufacture  gaurantee,  but  I  didn't  take  it  for  granted  I  took  it  as  a  challenge,  if  it  works  fine  thats  fine  if  its  not  then  I  got  to  find  another.
 
 joyban,  
 How  cheap  are  watercooler  pumps?  I  guess  you'll  need  to  use  them  as  inline  pumps  and  not  immersible..  am  I  rite?  Wher  can  I  get  water  cooler  pumps?

 Tell  me  something,  I  picked  up  an  UGF,  this  is  what  it  looks  like..
 It  has  some  block  like  chips  under  the  gravel  and  at  the  corner  or  the  tank  I  see  a  hose-like  thing  and  at  the  top  of  it  has  an  opening,  through  which  water  comes  out,  now,  the  way  its  positioned  by  the  LFS.
 This  opening  is  above  water  level,  what  is  wrong??
 
 What  kind  of  filter  is  this?
 Please  reply  i'm  really  anxious!

 Dude,  why  is  the  opening  above  water  level?
 I  noticed  in  my  friends  tank  he  has  a  UGF  too,  however,  I  noticed  he  has  two  hose  like  things  at  either  ends  of  the  tank  and  both  their  opening  is  below  water  level.
 
 What  is  the  difference?

 One  obvious  difference  is  the  above  water  level  outlets  make  more  water  surface  movements.   Thumb Up

 I'll  say  yes,  I'll  also  say  there  is  nothing  wrong  placing  it  under  water  level  as  that  will  promote  faster  cycling  of  water  thru  the  gravel  trapping  more  suspended  vegitative  particles  in  the  gravel  for  the  nitrifing  bacteria  to  wok  on.
 
 Basically  an  undergravel  filter  performs  two  functions
 1)  it  aerates  the  water  to  facilitate  the  flow  of  oxygen  into  the  water  and  carbon  dioxide  out,
 
 2)  it  helps  to  breakdown  the  wastes  that  the  fishes  produce  by  trapping  it  inside  the  gravel  and  allowing  the  good  bacteria  to  act  upon.
 
 So  you  should  use  your  common  sense  to  arrange  it  justifying  both  these  functions  that  it  is  supposed  to  perform.
 
 
 As  you  mentioned  in  the  PM  an  aquarium  siphon  is  the  best  bet  for  cleaning  the  gravel.

 Now,  I  assume  a  powerhead  at  the  top  of  the  UGF  outlet  would  enhance  the  filteration  process!
 
 Thanks  mate!
 True,  common  sense  is  not  all  that  common  these  days.
