Pond Pumps Explained

Pond pumps are vital to keep the air and water circulated in garden ponds. The motion prevents ponds and water features from becoming stagnant. Pond pumps provide a greater source of oxygen which benefits your plants and fish. While plants help to oxygenate garden ponds, pond pumps yield a greater overall output.

We recommend that homeowners in Horsham, Haywards Heath and Worthing regularly monitor their pond pumps, ensuring they don’t suffer from a fault or breakdown. If left unattended for too long, your aquatic eco-system will quickly perish.

The main signs that pond pumps need to be replaced include:

  • Power Cutting Out – If pond pumps cannot withstand the power needed to move and oxygenate the water, they need an upgrade
  • Strange Sounds – Repetitive screeching or humming noises indicate pond pumps should be replaced immediately to keep garden ponds in Horsham, Haywards Heath and Worthing sufficiently oxygenated
  • Intermittent Power Outages – This is typically due to pond pumps overheating. Units which are safely submerged aren’t affected as the water keeps the mechanisms inside cool
  • Lack of Water Movement – Typically the result of a blockage. This ranges from debris to small aquatic creatures getting stuck. We fix any issues with blocked pond pumps, such as broken or loose parts too

Water Filtration

In addition to pond pumps, our team installs water filtration units for domestic customers in Horsham, Haywards Heath and Worthing. There are two main filtration units which work together to keep garden ponds and water features free from toxins and harmful bacteria. These include an Ultra Violet Clarifier (UVC) and a biological filter.

  • An Ultra Violet Clarifier (UVC) is available as a single filtration unit or as a combined UVC and biological filter
  • Water is pumped through the UVC electrical unit before passing through the biological filter
  • UVC units eliminate green water and bacteria from garden ponds
  • Single cell algae are exposed to UV light to make it easier to be processed
  • Biological filters break down the algae and maintain the quality of the water. This keeps your fish and plants healthy

When our experts visit customers at their property in Horsham, Haywards Heath, Worthing or the West Sussex area, we advise the type of UVC unit they need. This is based on the size of the pond or water feature. The amount of sunlight garden ponds is exposed to determines the best-suited UVC and filter.
