Moving water in your pond benefits not only your waterscape, but its inhabitants as well. Pond pumps recirculate the water, distributing its beneficial nutrients to all aquatic life in the pond. Additionally, running water prevents stagnation, ensures that oxygen levels remain evenly distributed, and prevents pond stratification.
Even if your pond is solely ornamental, installing a pond pump still offers benefits. Streams, waterfalls, and fountains are all created by pumps. Pond pumps can be powerful enough to force water almost anywhere you want it, enabling you to create and customize spectacular water features.
Carefully choose a pond pump that is best suited for your needs. For help choosing the appropriate pump, check out the
