A lot is riding on a pond`s pump
. If you would compare your pond to the human body, the water pump is the heart. Without it, water will remain stagnant and, most importantly, the oxygen level of your pond will suffer. No pump. No oxygen. Simple as that. Just as simple is the next conclusion: no oxygen, no fish.
How do you go about finding the right pump for your pond considering the crucial job it plays? Look for a pump that carries a decent warranty period. The longer the warranty the better. The warranty`s length also indicates the level of confidence the manufacturer has on its product. They wouldn`t dare to cover a a product with a long warranty if they have reasons to suspect that it will fall apart before the warranty cycle.
Another key consideration to keep in mind when considering pond pumps is the type of pump. Some pumps use seals to create a vacuum to move water. Seal-based pumps wear out. Other pumps, like the Danner Pondmaster 18 from Pet Store
uses a magnetic drive to pump water. No seals. Less likely to wear out. Also, it can run continously. Since it uses magnetic actions to pump water, it uses less electricity. Your savings add up over time.
