Pondpush 17000 Pond Pump Review

Pondpush 17000 pond pump review? Whether you are looking to replace your current pond pump because it has seen better days or has stopped working completely or you are planning a new pond, you should be looking at buying a pond pump.  A pond is an interesting thing to have in your garden and can prove to be an nice talking point for when you have friends or family visiting, can help you to teach your children about looking after animals etc. or can just be a nice finishing touch to a tranquil part of your garden for relaxation after a hard day.

As mentioned you need a pond pump though as it is not nearly as simple as digging out the area, lining it and filling it with water.  Ponds need daily and weekly maintenance to keep the water healthy, and any fish or animals that may be living in it or otherwise use it.  This is why it is crucial that you buy a high quality pond pump and do not settle immediately on the first one you come across.

This is made harder though by the vast number of products available now.  We hope though, that reviews like this one of the Pondpush 17000 Garden pond pump are helpful in your search.


The Pondpush 17000 garden pond pump is a submersible pump designed specifically with pond filters and waterfalls in mind.  It has a very space saving and eco-friendly build and design.  Even though it is not a determining factor in whether it works well or not, it is worth pointing out that this pump is very appealing aesthetically.

Maximum Flow Rate

Obviously one of the things you will be most interested in and should be most interested in is the maximum flow rate that a pond pump such as the Pondpush 17000 is capable of and as indicated by the name, this pump is capable of 17,000 lph.  Although the actual flow rate will be closer to 16,600 litres per hour, it is still a lot higher than some products that cost the same or more.  With waterfalls in mind, it is also worth noting that it is capable of producing a maximum head height of approximately 2 metres.


With the Pondpush 17000, the outlet for attachments is an adjustable rotatable outlet on a ball joint that can take hoses of 20 mm, 25 mm, 32 mm and 40 mm.  We think this would be more than enough to give you the versatility to connect this pump up to a variety of different filters and waterfalls.

Power Usage

To match the impressive flow rate, the Pondpush 17000 is powered by a much larger motor than many of the pumps highlighted on this site, but at 220 Watts outage, we are actually surprised it wasn’t more.  Obviously, it does cost a whole lot more than the average pond pump, but we are sure you will agree, if you are looking for a more powerful pump you can expect to pay a higher price for it.


Besides the standard 10 metres length of cabling, there does not appear to be much in the way of extras that come with this particular pond pump.  However, it is worth mentioning, as it has been designed specifically to be used with filters (and waterfalls), that the Pondpush 17000 is capable of handling solid matter of up to 6 mm.


With the Pondpush 17000 garden pond pump you get a full 12 month’s warranty from the manufacturer, PondXpert.  This is great, because we feel that as PondXpert are not as well known as other pond pump brands whose products we have reviewed on this site; and when you are unsure whether to trust a company or not, one thing that can build that trust up a little is a warranty for when anything goes wrong with the product that is not your fault.
