Hozelock Fountain Water Feature Pump 700

Ponds are a great way to diversify the scenery in your back garden a little.  You can keep fish in them, use water features with them and fountains too.  However, you’d be greatly mistaken if you thought there was no maintenance involved.  In order for your pond to stay fresh, clean and full of oxygen (essential for ensuring all pond life survives) and to keep water features operational – you need a good quality pond pump.

The keywords we used there were “good quality”.  If you have ever conducted a search for pond pumps, you will have noticed that there are literally thousands of different products out there – all claiming to be amazing.  This can make the job of choosing the best one for your own setup very hard indeed, and it could become quite a headache.

This is why it pays to carry out some research into different p0umps and you should also give some thought to the kind of applications you need a pond pump for.  Will it be helping to keep the water oxygenated for fish you want to keep in your pond or will it just be providing a flow of water for that eye-catching water feature, fountain or waterfall you want to setup?

You have to think about these things and your available budget as well as the size of your pond before making a decision.  With all this in mind then, could this Hozelock Fountain water feature pump 700 be the right product for you?  Let’s take a look at it a little closer.

Type

The majority of the pumps featured on this site are of the submersible variety, and this one is no different.  It is primarily designed for use with small features and ponds, so if you have a  very deep and large pond, you might want to consider another product.

Maximum Flow Rate

As the name suggests, the maximum flow rate of this Hozelock Fountain Water Feature Pump 700 is 700 litres per hour and a maximum head height of 1.2 metres, so it is ideal for smaller applications such as small waterfalls and ponds.  It is important that you note that the maximum flow rate will not be the flow rate you have at your disposal once the pump is connected up to something else, but it is nevertheless a good indication of whether it will work with your specific setup or not.

Outlet

Similarly to the other Hozelock Fountain Water Feature Pump 700 we have looked at, there is no indication anywhere of the outlet measurements, but the pump does come with a set of different attachments to help you create that eye-catching fountain you desire.

Power Usage

As this pump does not produce a particularly high maximum flow rate, it is not surprising that the power rating is considerably lower than many of the other pumps listed on this site, at just 13 Watts.  However, this is not necessarily a bad thing, as it does not need much more than that.

Extras

It is always nice to get extras included in the price for something we purchase.  Not only could it, in the case of this pump, help make it more versatile to use, but it just feels good to be getting more for nothing.  Although there is not much in the way of extras with this pond pump, it still comes with a fountain set of different head attachments, that will help you to achieve the water feature or display you desire.

Warranty

As any other good company would, it appears that Hozelock Fountain Water Feature Pump 700 want their customers to trust them and be loyal to them by providing a 3-year guarantee against this pond pump.  This is another thing you should always look out for when buying electrical items in particular, as it will protect you financially against any issues or problems that may arise through no fault of your own.
