Pondmate Low voltage pond circulation pumps - Cozzie's thoughts
Suitable for: Pondmate Low voltage pumps have all the same features as the 240 volt version, except these have a transformer and can be extended to more than 17 metres. Pond circulation, waterfalls, fountains streams, filters (in-pond or external) are all suitable for these pumps.
What was liked: The 2 year warranty on both the pump and impeller. The quality and features are excellent for the price point, very good value for money. The flow adjustment knob is easy to use and on the intake (suction side) of the pump as it should be. Flow adjustment dial on all models. These low voltage pumps have been reliable. Quality transformers for trouble free operation.
Best of all the reliability for the price has been excellent. This pump sits at the very top end of pumps made in China.
Less than ideal: Nothing for the price point
