It is gurateed by the manufacturer, not the landscaper. Contact the company that made the device tand tell them it has failed. you will hae to prove that it is less than 3 years old., the reciept you got from the landscaper should prove the install date. they will send you a new pump, however they will not pay for removal and replacement, that will be your responsibility

Sorry to hear about your contractor not wanting to honor their work and products. About all I can recommend is that you contact the pump manufacturer directly and see if they can help you.Sometimes they will go ahead and authorize another contractor to take care of the problem if they think it is a defective pump. About the only other thing I know of for you to try is to file a complaint with your local better business burea. Wish I could be of more help. Good luck and thank you.

My Little Giant OPWG-71 after six months of trouble free use has stopped pumping my pond. It comes on, with no obstructions allows water to be pushed through it but won't pump. And yes even when


Hi don-eyre300.
Double check your suction side of the pump for obstructions if not then it is time to replace your pump...sounds like the impeller and housing is worn beyond repair.

Pump makes loud humming sound, does not pump, eventually overheats and trips breaker. Tsurumi Vancs 50pn2.4s-61


Pull out the oil inspection plug and check oil. It is filled with mineral oil and should appear clear. If milky it would indicate faulty seals. The tsurumis are overheating often in skimmer box applications where the top of the pump is not submersed when the skimmer intake screen gets plugged. Tsurumi no longer accepts pumps for repair at their US facility. If you contact them they may refer you to a recommended rebuilder. It is a shame as we have sold hundreds of these the last 4 years and have suddenly had a rash of this similiar complaint in the last few months with little success in repairing. We have since dropped this line and replaced with Atlantic water Garden Pumps in similiar sizes.

De-icer must have a short


The best solution to ice in garden ponds is to keep the water moving as moving water will not freeze. Depending upon the size of your garden pond you may try adding a fountain. All major pump brands carry small fountain pumps that include various fountain spray nozzles/heads or you can buy the pump and then purchase a Fountain Head Kit separately. The fountain will provide 1 - movement of water at the surface, 2- aeration for the pond, 3- pleasing sounds year round, not to mention the 4- aesthetic value. The added bonus is that you will not have to worry too much about shorts if you use a submersible pump. So try dumping the deicer and go for a fountain.

Aquascape 3000 Pond Pump


I have had similiar experiances with these. My most durable pumps are 1. Atlantic water Garden Tidal wave 2 pumps. - ( 1 pump repaired in the last few years out of hundreds sold) 2. Pondmaster - most models. The pondmaster (Danner Mfg. customer service is fantastic- no hassle problem resolution). The pumps get better every year and THREE year warranty.

Pond pump types


There are basically two types of pond pumps to choose from - externally mounted and submersible. External pumps were traditionally used in water gardens. They sit outside the pond, with a hose that leads from a strainer in the pond to the pump. From there the water is forced either to a waterfall, stream or fountain. Because external pond pumps are often noisy and require extra plumbing, they are usually not suited for most backyard ponds. Due to easier accessibility and ease of repair, however, external water pumps are often the best choice for larger water gardens and public installations. Submersible water pumps are usually preferred by most do-it-yourselfers. They sit underwater where they are quiet and unseen. These pumps are easy to install, require no priming and stay cool thanks to the surrounding water. Submersible pumps draw water from the bottom of the pond, either through a strainer or biological filter. A hose attached to the outlet then feeds water to whichever water feature you have installed.
