A lot of people gets excited to install a fountain in their yard, without paying attention to the right choice and size of the Fountain pumps. It then ends up spraying the water in the whole yard instead of flowing smoothly into the basin. Excessive water sprayer starts affecting the grass and the plants underneath. Question is, how to check the right Fountain pump?
It is very simple. For a large fountain which will hold water in gallons need a much larger sized pump. If you are planning to go with a tabletop fountain, then choose a very small fountain pump. Lifting water on an adequate pace or style is very important, the following should be considered for a right choice:
Gallons Per Hour (GPH): Do a little math, measure the diameter of the given hole at the top of the fountain. The pump needs to supply 100 gallons of water/per hour for every inch of the diameter
Rating of ‘head height’: How much higher the pump can lift the water vertically? Choose a higher pump that could flow a powerful water stream
Discharge Pump size: Buy the pump that offers the discharge size that parallels with the tubing you will use
It is recommended to discuss it with an expert before making a final decision.
