Fountains help move the water from the pond's surface to the bottom. Aeration by the fountain oxygenates the water, keeping hydrogen sulfide gas from collecting at the bottom and ultimately, significantly reducing the amount of this gas in the pond.
Else, what size fountain do I need for my pond?
Measure the width at the top of the waterfall and multiply with 1,500 GPH. If it's 2 feet wide at the top, add 3,000 GPH to pump size. For example, if you have a 250-gallon pond with few fish, you're starting at 125 GPH pump, but adding the 2-foot wide waterfall to the equation brings it up to a pump size of 3,125 GHP.
Not only that, how do you anchor a pond fountain? To anchor you will need nylon rope, 1/8” – 1/4” thick. To anchor to the bottom of the pond, tie off ropes and drop blocks in opposite directions of each other. Bring ropes up to the center and tie to the float or the handle of the pump. This method will require entering the pond with a boat.
Apart from this, should you leave pond pump on all the time?
Keep your pond pumps running absolutely at all times to avoid water stagnation and undesirable algae build-up. ... If you turn your pump off, the nitrifying bacteria will die again and will take days or even weeks to reproduce. For that reason, if you have a lot of fish in the pond, the pump must run all the time.
