Water Feature Pumps

Choosing the correct pump for your water feature or pond can be confusing, so we have tried to make the process as simple as possible. Wet Pumps must be completely submerged at all times; this is because it uses the surrounding water to cool the motor. Dry Pumps either circulate water around the hot elements in the pump or manage to gain enough cooling from the surrounding air.

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly and cost-effective way to power your water feature, consider investing in a solar pond pump from our collection. Solar pond pumps will allow your water feature to run entirely on sunlight, making them easy to install and maintain. In our collection, you’ll discover solar pond pumps of varying power to suit the needs of your water feature.

Water Feature Pump FAQs

  • Benefits of solar pond pumps

    There are many benefits to a solar pond pump, but the key benefit is that you won’t need to use electricity to power your pond feature. This makes solar pond pumps the perfect option for those that are eco-conscious and want to keep running costs down.

    Aside from the practical benefits, solar pond pumps can improve water circulation which will allow any fish and pond vegetation to thrive, keeping your pond looking fantastic.

  • How many solar panels does it take to run a water pump?

    This will entirely depend on the wattage of the water pump and the size of the solar panels. Typically, you’ll need around five solar panels to run a 100-watt water pump.

    All of our solar water pumps come with sufficient solar panels to run the corresponding pump so you don’t need to worry about calculating exactly how many panels you’ll require – one less thing to worry about!

  • How high can a solar pump pump water?

    Solar pump pressure is measured in litres per hour (LPH) – we offer a range of solar pumps in varying pressures from low-pressure pond pumps that generate less than 4,000 LPH, medium pressure solar pumps that operate at around 4,000-10,000 LPH, all the way to high-pressure solar pond pumps that generate more than 10,000 LPH.

    The higher the pressure, the higher the water will pump – but remember that this will also depend on how much power is generated by the solar panels. 

  • Is a solar-powered pump right for my pond?

    Typically you want your pond pump to work during the day, which means that a solar-powered water pump will make a great deal of sense. However, if you want to have more control over the power and timing of your water feature, you may wish to consider other types of pond pumps available here at Primrose.
