I used this to fix my koi pond. A comparable model I bought at a “pond store” 2 years ago cost twice as much and was of lower quality. Very, very happy with this tho! I have been postponing my pond setup for years, but after i got this pump and had it set up, i was glad i did finally finish it!

This pump has very good flow and has good pressure power to send water through a filter on the way to the tank. Not all of the pumps out there show this kind of output, (in my opinion) even though they can be rated at 600+ gallons per minute, I only got about 5 gpm after the filter. Flow and power after the filter was satisfactory enough for me!

5100 gph model

I had a different pump with the same GPH rate but it was just too loud. It also couldn’t pump water vertical very far at all. This cute little puppy is in fact a massive upgrade to the pump that I had been using and it cost much lest. Even thought they claimed to have the same GPH. Amazed of the performance, keep in mind the pond i have is also quite small.

Just about 10 days ago, I’ve ordered this very same pump from Amazon, got it shipped couple of days ago, unwrapped 10 minutes later i got it, and started to set it up. And boy does it work beautifully; i love the quality and the look of the product. Well, anyway, the setup itself was fairly simple, and i can watch the water move in my small pond here and relax, knowing the pond is healthy. I recommend!

We bought the slightly more powerful version of this pump, the TotalPond 3600 GPH Waterfall version (was $170 at the time i purchased it) works just how we expected. After we expanded our pond a few months ago, the water just dripped down the face of the waterfall with the old weak pumop We put in an additional one to the existing and it just didn’t do the trick. So we got this 3600 and bam !! A stunning waterfall again is now in our pond!
