Jebao Jecod pond pump review? There is a lot more to owning a pond than simply digging a hole, lining it appropriately and filling it with water and whatever fish you may wish to inhabit it. You need to make sure the water is oxygenated enough and that it is kept clean. Additionally, there is also the factor that a clam and still pond is not particularly interesting to look at, so if you were intending on investing in a water feature or fountain, then pond pump of some description is a necessity.
Due to the sheer wealth of choice on the market now, it can be a little overwhelming finding the best pond pump for your own particular needs and requirements. As you will need to match the specifications of a pond pump with the features and fountains you have in mind for your pond, it is a good idea to look at what kind of flow rate of water and power rating, as well what sort of connectors etc. are required to connect everything together.
In the following review article we will be looking at this Jebao Jecod Super Low Wattage XOE-5000 Garden Pond Pump and seeing what it has to offer.
The type of pump, whether it is an external only or submersible model, is always important to note, as the best for your own specific setup will be different to another person’s. That being said, the Jecod Super Low Wattage XOE-5000 is submersible, meaning it can be put directly into the water supply of your pond.
Maximum Flow Rate
If you have done any research into pumps before starting your search, you will know that the maximum flow rate, is in all probability not going to be the maximum flow rate you experience from using the pump, unless you use it without being connected to anything else – and that in itself is a rarity. The Jebao Jecod Super Low Wattage XOE-5000 Garden Pond Pump has a maximum flow rate of 5000 litres per hour and, important if you are looking to direct water through a fountain, a maximum head height of 3 metres.
The really great thing about Jebao and their approach with this pump is that they have given users the choice of outlet size. This essentially means you will be able to connect this pump up to hoses with a variety of different diameters – 19 mm, 25 mm, 32 mm, 38 mm.
You should always take note of the power rating of an appliance like this, because it determines how well it will do its job. The more power a pond pump has, the better the flow rate will be and the performance in general. The Jebao Jecod Super Low Wattage XOE-5000 Garden Pond Pump features a nice and powerful (for the price) 40 w motor.
Surprisingly for the price, though it is powered by a reasonably strong motor, the Jebao Jecod lacks a selections of accessories to make the deal even sweeter. Under the casing though, is where Jebao have focused all their attentions, a sis clear when you look at some of the components. For one thing, this pump was designed with dirty water pumping in mind and is capable of passing through solids of up to 8 mm through the vortex impeller blades and the ceramic shaft helps the transportation of any solid material to be as smooth and efficient as you’d want it to be. In addition to the main pump and necessary components, there is a 10 metre line of cable, which is very helpful.
As a general rule of thumb it is always a good sign if a company is will to attribute a warranty or guarantee against their products and it is no different when it comes to the Jebao Jecod garden pond pump as it comes with a free and comprehensive 12 month’s manufacturer’s warranty. Although you may wish to extend this after that initial period of a year has passed, it is hoped you will never have to actually use it. It just gives peace of mind knowing that the company has you covered if you encounter issues with the pump, no fault of your own.
