Fountain pumps

Fountain pumpsFountain pumps are necessary to run the water of fountains. There are a few different types of fountain pumps on the market - the one that you choose will depend greatly upon the type of fountain that you have or want.

  • Direct-drive - the majority of pumps in the past have been of this variety. They are for medium to large size fountains. The motor of this type of pump is enclosed in an oil-filled waterproof shell that is well-sealed around the impeller shaft and cord.
  • Magnetic drive - the use of these has allowed the building of much smaller, tabletop size fountains. The size and output power is much more conducive to small fountains than the abovementioned type of fountain pump. These "magnetic drive" pumps are so called because the impeller is attached to a magnet...
  • Solar powered - solar powered pumps are a great option for people who want a fountain in the far reaches of their yards, places where there is no electricity. And because these pumps do not require electricity, they are relatively easy to install, too. Solar powered fountain pumps consist of a low voltage pump and a solar panel (and ones that run at night also include a battery pack).
