If you’re backyard water feature is a small water garden, you might be wondering why a pond pump or a garden water pump is necessary. You don’t have fish or a large amount of water, so what good can a pond pump do for you?

Filters do the water cleaning, but without a garden water pump, much of your water would remain dirty. A pond pump can: circulate water, limit bacteria growth and assist filtration as well as other things.

  • Circulation is vital to water garden health, even with minimal fish, plants and water. If your water isn’t circulating, it can’t all be cleaned.
  • Water gardens can be especially susceptible to unhealthy bacteria growth due to shallow water and extreme temperature changes. To reduce unwanted bacteria without harming your plants and fish, use a pond pump
  • In summer and fall seasons, extra leaves and debris can enter your filtering system. With a garden water pump for your water garden, you can screen out larger items before they reach the filter.

Not all pumps are alike, they are designed for a specific application. Some are high efficient to run, others are made for high head only, some are solid handling, and some only can be put in a skimmer. Call 503-663-5483 if you have any questions.
