Installing Your Tetra Statuary Pump

  1. Submerse pump in pond, aquarium or fountain reservoir.
  2. Choose proper water outlet adapter that comes with the pump.
  3. For maximum flow, attach the largest tubing fitting included with the pump
    • SP75 1/4", 3/8", 1/2"
    • SP140 1/4", 3/8", 1/2"
    • SP330 1/2", 3/4"
    • SP425 1/2", 3/4"
  4. Attach flexible tubing to pump outlet and other end to fountain feature.
  5. Please review Safety Instructions before plugging in pump. NOTE: If the flow does not occur within seconds of plugging the pump in, it may need priming.
  6. To prime the pump, unplug the electrical cord for several seconds and then plug back in. Repeat if necessary. DO NOT RUN DRY! Always disconnect the unit if there is no water running through it to prevent overheating and possible pump damage.

Adjusting Water Flow
All SP series pumps have an intake flow adjuster on the front, which can be turned to regulate water to the pump.

Maintenance & Care
Before carrying out any maintenance, the unit must be disconnected from the electrical circuit. Warning: Failure to carry out routine maintenance or leaving the pump under reduced or no-flow conditions for long periods (i.e. blocked filter) will result in accelerated wear.

Do not lift the pump by the electrical cable as this may cause irreparable damage to the electrical cable, which cannot be replaced if damaged. Instead, lift the pump by the housing.

Cleaning Instructions
After use, there may be a noticeable flow decrease in your water feature. This is often due to algae and other debris building up within the water tubing, water feature tubing, or inside the pump housing.

Cleaning the Tubing

  1. Remove the tubing from the pump. (In most cases, the algae or debris buildup can be flushed out of the tubing with a garden hose at high pressure. The tubing within the water feature can be flushed out in the same manner.)
  2. If the tubing is still clogged, push a thin wooden dowel-rod into the tubing to dislodge debris. Flush with water.
  3. Buy new tubing and replace if blockage cannot be removed.

Cleaning the Pump

  1. The pump can be cleaned without disassembly, by spraying with a garden hose into the front slots to flush out the pre-filter and impeller assembly.
  2. If pump blockage still occurs, remove the impeller and clean as described below.
To Remove and Clean Impeller
  1. Unplug the pump.
  2. Remove the pre-filter cage.
  3. Remove the impeller cover.
  4. Gently pull impeller off shaft. CAUTION: be careful not to bend shaft.
  5. Flush impeller, shaft and housing with water.

To Reinstall Impeller

  1. Be sure the pump in unplugged.
  2. Slide impeller back onto shaft.
  3. Take care not to bend the shaft.
  4. Re-install impeller cover.
  5. Re-install pre-filter cover. NOTE: Use only clean water to lubricate impeller assembly and shaft. Do Not Add Lubricants!

The Tetra Statuary Pump in the Winter
If there is a danger of the water freezing, the pump should be removed from the water, cleaned with water, and stored in a frost-free location for the duration of the winter.
