Place your pump up off the bottom of the pond. If the pump sucks in pond debris, it can make it run slower and eventually shorten the pump's life. Place the pump on a cinder block or stack of rocks to keep it off the pond bottom.
Attach a piece of flexible tubing to the output of the pump.
Clamp the hose firmly on the pump using the hose clamp.
Attach the pump to the under part of a fountain or run it up and over a waterfall.
Things You Will Need
- Submersible pump
- Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) electrical outlet
- Flexible tubing to fit on the outflow of the pump
- Hose clamp, appropriately sized.
- Clean your pond pump to ensure long pump life.
