By on. About 7 years ago I started developing various water features, both garden ponds and water falls. In a natural pond the water, soil, plants, and animals all live in harmony.
All the water in your pond needs to be pumped through your filtration system to keep the water clean and clear, so placing your submersible pond pump is not a case of dropping it into your pond and hoping for the best. The positioning of your pond pump needs a bit of thought to get the maximum amount of water to flow throughout your pond. If you position your pump directly under or very close to your waterfall or filter outlet the only water that the pump will send to your filter system is going to be from this small area of your pond.
Where is the best place for me to put a pond? Viewing from windows: Since most of us spend more time inside our homes than outside in our garden, it makes the most sense to locate the pond where you can see and enjoy it from the window s or room s you frequent most, such as your kitchen, sun room, family room or deck. Orientation of waterfall: Be sure to orient your waterfall so that it is visible from the place you will enjoy it most. Next to patio or deck: Having your pond next to your deck or patio is great — since these are areas for relaxation and entertainment.

Pressure filters: These filters can be positioned anywhere around the pond. Since this sealed filter is under pressure, the filter may be buried and the flow discharged uphill to a waterfall or stream. These are easier to conceal than most gravity filters. When should I change my UV bulb?
Your water feature's pond pump filter is the most important part of the overall pond. The design, plants, rocks, and even fish can add some great attractive qualities, but no functional purpose. The pond pump and filter move the water and keep it clean.
