This covers the water feature pumps that we offer for our customers.
You might be wondering why we would need a separate category for water feature pumps. Could they be all that different? The answer is “yes”.
When an engineers set out to design a pump, they have three key questions in mind:
A water feature pump is designed to produce a LOT of flow working against very low back pressure (20-30 ft of head). This is because the only back pressure created in the system is either the piping that carries the water back to the water feature or the required lift to push the water uphill or into the air. As the name connotes, the key element of a “water feature” is the water. The water is the show, and you typically want to move large amounts of water to gain the desired effect.
A typical pool pump is designed to produce a moderate amount of flow working against medium to high back pressure (50-70 ft of head). This is because everything in the pool circulation system (filter, backwash valve, heater, chlorinator, spa jets, etc) creates back pressure and it all adds up, so the pool/spa pump needs to be able to operate at higher back pressure than a water feature pump.
– our technicians carry the proper state licensing for your safety and peace of mind. – we have considerable experience installing variable speed pumps and optimizing the pool for maximum savings. – Pool Stop Custom Pools has an established reputation for great service and value. – with PoolStop you get a full three year parts/labor warranty when installed by our professional technicians.
NOTE: If you purchase pool equipment online and install it yourselves, most manufacturers either void your warranty or drastically reduce it to only 60 days.
