We strive to help you find the perfect fit for your pond or lake.

The information below is designed to help you make an informed decision when choosing your fountain.

We strongly advise reading through this guide thoroughly to find the best match for your pond's size and needs.

If you can't find what you're looking for, feel free to give us a call.

How To Choose Horsepower

The horsepower of your fountain will affect its spray size and flow rate.

Higher horsepower moves more water volume, resulting in a larger spray size.

Ultimately your choice will be dependent upon the size of your pond and the budget you have to work with.

It is advised that you allow enough room between the edge of your pond and your fountains spray. Around 10 FT is a good distance.

How To Choose Voltage

115V: If you're running 115V power to the edge of your pond, you will need to take note of the distance from the pump to the breaker (power cord included).

Use the graph below to figure out the maximum distance.

230V: If you are running 230V power, distance is normally not of any concern.

1/2 HP - 115V250 FT
3/4 HP - 115V200 FT
1 HP - 115V150 FT


How To Choose Fountain Lights - Optional

Fountain lights are a wonderful addition to increase the aesthetics of your display. You may purchase them right away, or add them later if desired. Installation is simple as they just screw on to the fountain float.

The lights run on 110V power and come with their own dedicated power cord.

Both Warm Glow LED's and Color Changing LED's come with a programmable timer.

The Color Changing LED's come with a remote that operates up to 1,000 FT away!

Which Light Set To Choose

1 HP and less | 2-Light Set is recommended.

1.5 HP - 2 HP | 3-Light Set is recommended.

3 HP and above | 4-Light Set is recommended.


How To Choose A Timer - Optional

Timers are optional and may be purchased now or added later. They are a great way to save energy by keeping your fountain on a schedule.

Please note - The pump timers are made to control fountains only, they do not control lights.
