Question about Aqua Garden
I have a fountain that holds 750 gallons. I bought a pump that moves 1200GPH, and it was working fine for about 3 months. I connected the pump to a 3/4in connector that pushes the water up at about 4 ft high to a tower where it cascades back to the base of the fountain and recirculates. I added fish to the fountain to try and keep mosquitoes from breeding in the water. The pump itself says that it had a guarrantee of 5 years. Right now the pumps sounds like it is working, but no longer pushes water up to the tower. I checked that nothing was blocking the pipes becausue sometimes I get leaves in the fountain, and everything was clear. I pulled the pump out of the water, and cleaned it, and it started again for about 5 minutes, then it stops. Did I get a deffective pump? Or should I have gotten a more powerfull pump?
Can you advice?
This sounds like you should check your suction pipeing again and with fish be sure to get a screen for it. Then also check the impeller on the pump to be sure nothing inside it. You will need to open the pump to do this. If it has been working their is probally nothing wrong with the pump itself.
