AquaSurge® Pond Pumps

Ideal for use in Pond Skimmers and Pondless® Waterfall Vaults

AquaSurge Pond Pumps

AquaSurge and AquaSurge Adjustable Flow Pond Pumps

Ideal for use in ponds, pondless waterfalls, and other water feature applications, Aquascape AquaSurge asynchronous pumps are designed for use in skimmer and waterfall-filter systems. Extremely energy-efficient, AquaSurge pumps are made for continuous use in either horizontal or vertical orientation.

AquaSurge pumps will not corrode or rust, and their rubber feet prevent noise and vibration while in use, making them a top choice for discriminating homeowners and pond professionals alike.

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

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. 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

Head height, also known as total dynamic head, represents the height water needs to be lifted (static head) plus the friction experienced by the water as it runs through the pipes (dynamic head).

Dynamic head is the amount of resistance caused by the plumbing. Water velocity (flow rate), pipe diameter, length and pipe material all play a role in dynamic head. Additional resistance will also be caused by fittings such as elbows and valves. Since this equipment is typically buried in the ground, sometimes an estimation of dynamic head needs to be used.

The calculation below is a simple way to estimate the approximate head height.

Static Head in feet + (Pipe Length in feet x 0.1) = Apprx. Head Height*

*Static head: The height difference between the surface of the pond and the waterfall
Pipe length: We're calculating 1 ft head per 10 ft tubing
Fittings: additional fittings would add 1 ft of head each

The pond calculator is designed to help you find the pump you need for your project. Be advised that variables outside of this calculator, such as pipe diameter or number of elbows used, can influence proper pump selection. If your pond project exceeds the performance from a single pump, please contact Aquascape Customer Care for additional help.

If your pond requires a pump that doesn’t fall into the “Best Operating Zone” for our AquaSurge pumps, consider choosing one of our PL & PN Series Solids-Handling pumps.
