AquaForce® Pond Pumps

Ideal for use in ponds, waterfalls, and other water feature applications

AquaForce Solids-Handling and
AquaForce Adjustable Flow Solids-Handling Pond Pumps

AquaForce® pumps combine energy-efficient performance, high flow rates, and ease of maintenance making this pump the ideal choice for discriminating pond owners. A protective pre-filter cage and wide, flat base allow the AquaForce Pump to be placed directly into the pond.

Its oil-free design and high-torque performance will provide years of trouble-free operation, while the protective pump cage will handle solids up to one-quarter of an inch, preventing clogging and reducing maintenance. Making the AquaForce pump ideal for use with external pressure filters or Aquascape waterfall style filter systems.

Excellent Energy Efficiency

Aquascape uses asynchronous motor technology in its AquaSurge pumps, providing high torque, trouble-free performance at higher head heights as well as excellent energy efficiency compared to magnetically driven pond pumps. The unique ceramic shaft with cooling port also prevents the pump from overheating.

You’ll save hundreds of dollars over traditional water pumps, and its oil-free design helps prevent pond contamination.

Selecting the Proper Pump Size

Once you’ve determined which Aquascape pump family best suits your water feature application, you’ll need to select the proper size pump.

Pond Volume

A basic pond pump will have the capability of turning the total volume of water over once per hour. Therefore, before choosing a pond pump, you need to know the number of gallons of water in your feature. You can find the volume of your pond in gallons with this useful equation:

(Length x Width x Average Depth x 7.48) x 0.8 = US Gallons*

*Length, Width and Depth are measured in feet

Pond Volume

(Length x Width x Average Depth x 7.48) x 0.8 = US Gallons*

*Length, Width and Depth are measured in feet. We multiply by 0.8 to account for rocks in the pond.

Flow Rate

Most pond pumps are rated by the gallons of water they're able to pump per hour (GPH). As a general rule of thumb, a pump with a flow rate of 1500 GPH is needed for every foot of the length of the spillway (the weir, which is the horizontal width of the waterfall opening). So if your waterfall spillway is two feet wide, you'll need a pump with a flow rate of 3000 GPH.

Waterfall Width x 125 = Apprx. Flow Rate*

*Waterfall width measured in inches

Head Height

Pond pumps are capable of pushing a certain amount of water based on the height and distance that the water needs to travel. This amount of work is generally referred to as head. Static head (or rise) is the overall height of water that the pump needs to push, referring to the elevation change from the surface of the pond to the spillway at the top of the waterfall.

Friction head (or run) is the amount of resistance caused by the plumbing. Pipe diameter, type of pipe, and fittings all play a role in friction head. Since this equipment is typically buried in the ground, sometimes an estimation of friction head needs to be used.

Rise + (Run x 0.1) = Apprx. Head Height*

*Rise and Run are measured in feet
