Rio Table

SPECIFICATION table FOR SUBMERSIBLE PUMPS

The tables below will assist you in the selection of the correct water pump for your needs. Note:  Many customers tell us they underestimated their needs and wish they had bought a larger pump. For this reason, we recommend the selection of the pump one size higher than the minimum shown by the table.

We have never had a customer who whished they purchased a smaller pump!

FOUNTAIN PUMPS

For small table top fountain making the Rio pumps 50-600, ViaAqua 80-480 and the Fountain Pro 65-300 are most often used. You will want to consider the total height that the pump will need to pump to on the fountain. You will want to choose a pump that has a max head higher than the height you need to pump to. For example: a fountain that has water rising 2 foot would take a fountain pump that has a 2.5 foot or higher max head. If you do not use a pump with a max head higher than the level you wish to pump to then the water will barely trickle out. For more information on the construction of table top fountains please review Fountain Making Advice and Consultation.

Larger indoor or outdoor fountains should consider a pump with a max head at least a foot or two higher than the height they will pump to.

POND PUMPS

There are many pond pumps available for all size ponds. From the smallest container watergarden to a 10,000 gallon pond, we have or can get the pond pump you need. Pond circulation should be 2 x 3 times volume of small ponds. Larger ponds should have circulation as close to total volume as possible. You will want to consider the total size of your pond in gallons. Length x width x average depth x 7.5 should give you a close estimate on the number of gallons your pond contains.

When you look for a pond pump, please choose only those that indicate a three prong heavy duty cord for outdoor use.

AQUARIUM PUMP

To assess your aquarium needs you should consider an aquarium pump that circulates 4 times tank volume for freshwater aquariums and 5 times for salt water aquariums. The use of filters or when raising water up from a well or sump more than 1 foot will reduce the total GPH flow and should be considered.

HYDROPONICS PUMPS

Our most popular selling water pumps for small home hydroponics systems are the Rio 600 and ViaAqua 360 and 480 pumps. Larger systems will require additional power and larger water pumps should be selected.
