Pondmaster can pump 2400 gallons per hour (GPH) with its magnet drive pump and with 19 feet maximum lift (head). It uses only 240 watts of electricity (actual output). The inlet is 1 female national pipe thread (FNPT) and the outlet is 1″ male national pipe thread (MNPT). The outlet also allows 1-1/4″ ID flexible tubing. Comes with non-clogging pre-filter as shown to shield the pump from debris. Outfitted with 18 feet power cord for use in ponds. The PM24 is quite the power efficient – low electrical use for the high volume of water being circulated. It’s also very much fish safe, and is epoxy encapsulated motor means it has zero oil, so there is nothing to leak out to harm your fish in the pond. Only one moving part – no motor seals to tire out. Three year limited warranty.ar

I’ve had many of these and they all work fine and are very durable. This one is working fine as all the rest have. There is always the issue of keeping them from getting clogged with pond debris, but that’s typical. You can always use special nets to wrap the pump up, but I’ve seen special net-wraps for pumps on sale as well. After many years they can burn out (my first lasted 4 years), particularly if they are clogged for a long time. Wish I wasn’t that lazy. Superb pump!

Possibly the best constructed pond-pump available, with one moving part! My old pump stopped working after being in the pond 2 years. I ordered new pump, then decided to change the armature on the old one (very easy task) and voila, it now it works fine, so I have a backup. Fantastic pump, when it clogs, I simply clean and it keeps on ticking. Well, built properly and will last for years and years if taken care of.
