Once upon a time...
...not that long ago, Water Gardeners had very few
choices. We built clay or cement basins, installed
sump or swimming pool pumps and had few other
options. Itâ€™s a very different world today, with
dozens of choices open to us, from which type of
liner to use, to the kind of skimmer or vault we
prefer, to a myriad of filtration options. The choice
of pump is one of the most important, because
unlike other equipment, pumps cost a significant
amount to run over their lifetimes.
Just like with vehicles, thereâ€™s a perfect pump for
every job. Subcompacts donâ€™t tow horse trailers,
and dump trucks arenâ€™t economical commuter cars.
Itâ€™s the same with pumps. Sump pumps arenâ€™t
designed for continuous, economical operation

produce to get that flow to where itâ€™s going. Here
are the three steps youâ€™ll take:
Find the right flow, the volume of water, in
Gallons Per Hour (GPH), to get the look you want;
Figure out the head, the pressure, expressed in
Feet of Head, to lift that flow to the right height;
Pick the right pump, one that provides the right
flow at the right head, from the four main types.
Last but not least, youâ€™ll want to know how to
maintain your pump and what it will cost to run.

Letâ€™s Talk Pumps!
Regular Maintenance is the best way to get the most out of your pump, and itâ€™s most important
in harsh environments and areas with very hard water. If debris clogs the intake or calcification (lime sca
