Feature & Fountain Pumps

Feature or Fountain Pump?

There is an importance difference between feature pumps and a fountain pump, and there are pumps that will do both happily.

Feature Pumps: If you are buying a pump to run a water feature that does use a fountain jet (where the water is pumped through small holes or shapes to create a fountain) you can use a "feature pump". these pumps are a single outlet pump and are perfect for smaller self-contain water features. For a smaller feature we recommend the Pontec Pondocompact. If you require a larger feature pump the Oase Aquarius Universal can run much larger features and even fountains as they have a strainer filterer.

Fountain Pumps: A fountain pump will always have a finer prefilter to reduce debris reaching the fountain jets and blocking. Most these pumps will come with a secondary outlet which could be used for a multiple of purposes including running a water feature, waterfall or small pond filter depending on the pump size. Ranges include the Hozelock Cascade, Aquarius Fountain Set and Otter legend.
