Hozelock cascade pond pump review? So you are planning your new garden layout and are set on having a pond as a nice focal point and something nice to keep the kids happy, as they watch the fish grow and swim around. It is not a matter of digging a hole and filling it with water, to leave it to nature. If you did that, the water would inevitably become toxic and the wildlife you had living in it would die. This is why when you are planning to install a pond, you also need to figure the investment of a good quality pond pump into your budget.
More than just an appliance for keeping your pond clean though, a good pump will be able to push the water through various water features and fountain/waterfall set-ups you may wish to have to give your pond an extra bit of drama. over the last couple of decades, there has been a real explosion in the variety of pumps there are to choose from. This can make it feel like you are manoeuvring through a minefield. But, Hozelock are a very popular brand and let’s take a closer look at why we feel you should consider the Hozelock 3354 1500LPH Cascade Waterfall and Fountain pump for your pond.
This particular pump, as the vast majority of those on this site are, is a submersible type. This means it can be placed directly into the water and connected from there to whatever filters or water features you may wish to have setup. Hozelock have made this Cascade model with the specific purpose of it being used with water feature such as waterfalls and fountains.
Maximum Flow Rate
As indicated in the name of the pump, this pond pump produces a maximum flow rate of 1500 litres per hour. and a maximum head heigh of 1.8 mitres. It may not seem like enough, but it has been designed for use with fountains and waterfall features.
Although we were unable to find the specific outlet measurements and dimensions, it is safe to say you will not find it difficult to fit this with various water features and to use it to create waterfalls, as it comes with a number of attachments and accessories for that purpose.
For a relatively low price, this Hozelock pump unsurprisingly does not feature a particularly juicy motor. The power rating for this pump is just 33 Watts. However, as you will see further down the page, there have been many customers who have recommended this pump and who think it produces enough power for the price.
We all feel a bit joyful when we feel our money has gone far. With the Hozelock 3354 1500LPH Cascade Waterfall and Fountain pump, it is good to note that as well as the pump itself and the necessary cabling to connect it to the mains, it also comes with a wide variety of extras. These include a base to add a certain degree of stability to the pump when it is submerged and an anti-clogging foam free inlet cage for easier maintenance and cleaning, a special outlet for water features and waterfalls that has quick connect hose coupling and an adjustable telescopic fountain pipe. For the relatively low price, this is more than enough to help you individualise and make your pond stand out.
