For optimum results, locate the pump at the opposite end of the pond to the filter return. The pump comes standard with pond-life friendly slots to help protect spawning life.

For your convenience, the pump should be positioned within reach from the side of the pond on a solid platform (e.g. paving slabs) approximately 12" below the pond surface. The pump should be at least 8" below water level to avoid problems of low water levels in summer. If desired, the Base Plate may be screwed down for extra stability. Avoid positioning the pump at the bottom of the pond where pond debris will accumulate and maintenance will be difficult.
