If you need to move water in a pond,
whether it is for a fountain, a waterfall or a filter
you will need a pump.
As all these functions require different
pump characteristics it is necessary to have pumps with
Fountain Pumps need to be stable
and be able to operate efficiently for long periods
without the need for regular maintenance. However they
have to pump semi clean water to avoid blocking the
Waterfall pumps- need to be able
to pump large volumes of water efficiently. This water
however does not need to be free of solids.
Filter Pumps- need to be able to
operate for long periods of time without blocking, they
also need to be able to pass solids to the filter to
enable them to be removed from the pond. As they are
part of the life support system for the pond they need
to be very reliable.
At Hozelock Cyprio we produce three
different types of pump, each serving a different purpose;
each able to more closely match your needs.
Cascade Range (450-7000
litres per hour maximum flow) - The all purpose
pump that is able to run a fountain and a waterfall.
(Except the 450i and 700). These pumps feature an anti
clog system to reduce pump maintenance.
Titan Range (from 2000-15000 litres
per hour maximum flow) - A waterfall
and filter pump that has been designed to pump solids
up to 8mm in size in 2-8000 litre pumps and 10mm in
size in 12-15000 litre pumps into a filter. These pumps
feature a wildlife protection system to prevent aquatic
animals being drawn into the pump (e.g. Frogs). These
pumps are not suitable for fountains.
Range (3200-15000 litres per hour maximum flow)
- A range of high power waterfall and filter pumps designed
to pump solids up to 10mm into a filter.
