Tire Float: Aerating Pond Solar Pump

Filling a pond with a well pump is a popular and fairly simple install. Plumb the well pump to discharge into the pond being careful to have the pipe outlet above the water level to prevent siphon. You can also pump from a river or spring to a pond with a solar well pump or surface pump. 

The second pump in the center of the diagram illustrates a simple install to create a fountain for aeration. This action of drawing water from the bottom of the pond creates a nice upswell to circulate the water in the pond (B). We recommend using centrifugal  pumps for these applications as they are designed to move large volumes of water meaning fuller ponds, less algae and more healthy wildlife.

Almost any of our of our pumps could be used for a fountain or aeration, but we have our standard offerings on the Fountain Pump page.
