Pond Filtration

Pond Filters

Pond filtration is one of the most important components in maintaining a healthy and balanced ecosystem. Quality filtration equipment is necessary to maintain optimum water quality. Discount Pumps offers a wide selection of quality pond filtration to suit any budget or water garden.

Submersible Pond Filters- These innovative pond filters are low profile and designed to be unobtrusive in the bottom of the pond. Their large filter area means less frequent cleaning. More than one filter can be connected to a pump using a tee fitting. These pond filters offer mechanical, chemical and biological filtration.

External Pressurized Pond Filters- The presence of a large population of uni-cellullar algae causes green water. This algae is a pondkeeper's nightmare. "Pea soup" conditions caused by algae are unattractive and threaten fish health by using up oxygen. Green water occurs in most ponds and can be very difficult to eliminate. When green water is pumped through the UV Clarifier, the algae are exposed to ultra-violet light. As they pass around the UV lamp, these particles are flocculated ( clumped together). Water circulation carries them to the filter, which removes them, leaving behind only clean water.

Not all Sewage Pumps are equal!

We have so many customers that us to order a sewage pump, they have all the specs figured out, and expect that they will have good pressure at their height. But not all pumps are created equal! All the specs might b figured correctly, but if you are working with a pressurized city main, you will need a high pressure sewage pump. You need a much high PSI when working with a pressurized city main, and a lot of sewage pumps don't have the necessary PSI.

When looking to purchase a new sewage pump that will be tapping into the city main, contact your cities public works to find out what PSI you need. That will save a lot of headaches.

If you are connecting to another septic or a gravity fed main, take a look at our wide selection of quality sewage pumps at great prices.

Floating Pond Aerator vs. Floating Pond Fountain

What is the difference between an Pond Aerator and a Pond Fountain?

Significant Difference between a fountain and an aerator!

Most lake and pond fountains are designed with a pump, and quite often many companies use a basic sump pump. Many of these are the same less expensive pumps that can be purchased from your local hardware store. They were originally intended to pump out basements or commercial buildings, not to be used in fountains.

Sump pumps simply cannot pump the volume of water necessary to create a lake or pond decorative display aerator. These pumps were not designed to move high volumes of water. They are intended to pump with substantial water pressure so they can pump water far distances through long hoses effectively.

Unlike floating pond fountains, decorative display lake aerators need to move high volumes of water in order to do a few things:
• Effectively aerate the pond or lake by moving as much water as possible while refreshing stagnant water. (Destratification)
• Impress the landscape or waterscape not only with its visual appearance but also with the tranquil sound of a mountain stream nearby.
• Do all of this in a very efficient manner.

We understand this problem and does not buy pumps of any kind to be used in our fountains. In fact we use heavy duty all stainless steel motors that rotate a high quality propeller that is also made entirely of stainless steel. It works very similar to how a boat propeller works. Water never enters the motor and the propeller literally throws an extraordinarily high volume of the water into the air. Therefore there is no pump to clog nor is there any small pipe outlets to obstruct.

While most 1 hp fountains can only "pump" 3,000 to 8,000 gallons per hour, our 1 horsepower decorative display aerator can "THROW" an astounding 30,000 gallons per hour into the air. AND while the other company's 2 hp fountains can only "pump" a mere 5,000 to 10,000 gallons per hour, a 2 horse power decorative display lake  aerator can "THROW" an astounding 34,000 gallons per hour into the air.

WOW! That's a lot of water!

Utility, Effluent, Sump, Sewage, Grinder Pumps

Sump Pumps are used for  basement flood control, water transfer and light effluent. Low lying areas needing drainage, residential crawl spaces. Most sump pumps have float controls that turn the pumps on and off automatically.

Effluent Pumps are used for dewatering, water transfer, effluent and wastewater removal. Can handle 3/4" solids. High head filtered effluent pumps are for filtered effluent service, aeration, ornamental fountains and waterfalls.

Sewage Pumps are used for effluent and sewage waste transfer for septic systems.

Grinder Pumps are used for residential or commercial sewage waste transfer where high head conditions exist for high pressure sewage mains.

Utility Pumps are used for commercial, industrial and home usess where liquid must be transfered or recirculated.

This information is to help the customer choose what pump is needed for their application.

Floating Duck House

Transform your pond into an inviting backyard wildlife sanctuary!

A Floating Duck House!

The impressive Cedar Floating Duck House enhances your pond by adding a wonderful architectural element. More importantly, it provides a safe pond habitat for ducks and other waterfowl. Enjoy the festive antics of domestic or migratory waterfowl as they bask on the platform or care for their young. Once located in your pond, the Floating Duck House shelters eggs and ducklings and increases protection from predators. Duck ladders located on the sides of the Floating Duck House welcome ducks with easy access onto the platform. The floating duck houses are built with pressure treated material then we put cedar on the outside then we seal with a Thompson Water Sealant.


Pond Heaters

Floating Pond Heaters

Winter pond temperatures can remain very cold for months in our climate. Pond life needs oxygen even during hibernation. If ice covers the surface of the pond oxygen can't get in and toxic gasses can't get out.

If you live in an area where the pond will be covered over by ice, then it may be necessary to install a De Icer.

  • With a floating plate, the heater can float on the water surface. It is suitable for application in various ponds and gardens to create a deiced area so as to prevent fishes from dying of shortage of oxygen in cold winter.

  • There are some drinking holes on the floating plate specially designed for small birds, through which, they can drink freely during iced days. And the bowl-like place is also incorporated into both sides of the floating plate for holding bird food to attract small lovely birds. It helps add more liveliness to your iced ponds and gardens.

  • The heating tube must be properly submersed into water till the water level mark on the heater is reached or it couldn't work properly.

  • The heater is equipped with a thermal protector. When the water is too shallow to reach the water level mark on the heater, the thermal protector will work automatically to cut off the power so as to avoid any possible accidents.

Grinder Pump or Sewage Ejector Pump?

Is a Grinder Pump or Sewage Ejector Pump appropiate for your application?

Grinder Pumps are needed when you have a septic tank on your property and you need to transfer the sewage to a city main. A regular grinder pump can be used for this application. However if your city main is pressurized, you will need a high pressure grinder pump, like the Little Giant 2 HP Grinder Pump. This pump has enough PSI to push the slug into the high pressure main. A regular grinder pump would be used in any other application where the transfer is not a pressurized main.

Sewage Ejector Pumps are needed when you have an additional sewage holding tank that is located below the level of the main septic system on your property. A sewage ejector pump is prefered because it does not grind the sewage it just transfers it up to the main septic system, allowing the solids to go to the main septic and break down naturally, and the liquids to drain into the leach system.

Floating Pond Fountains

Floating Fountains for Pond Aeration

Small ponds are becoming increasingly popular in both residential and commercial areas. These ponds left without aeration, especially during the summer months when nutrient levels increase, can have a population explosion of algae. When this happens, noxious odors are released and fish and plant life die off creating an unsightly scene.

An effective way to prevent or remedy this situation is by using a floating pond fountain. The pond fountain circulates water, adding oxygen to your pond. Extra oxygen added to the water promotes healthier fish and an improved ecosystem, while simultaneously clarifying murky discolored pond water. The rugged construction of our fountains perform exceptionally well in all pond conditions, and the vibrant, beautiful shape of our spray patterns create a soothing and visually appealing display.
