Next Generation in Pumps for Ponds, Pond-free, Hardscape & Fountains

Pumps are the heart of all things water features: pond, pond-free, hardscape and fountain features. Without them we have no moving water to circulate, filter or entertain us.  

They are the number one thing we all use and the number one thing that is misused and misunderstood. And by that, I mean all pumps are not created equal.

You have a simple magnet driven pump commonly used in small water features or hardscapes. Easy to use, very energy efficient, easy to clean and easy to fix broken parts. The flow rates are typically lower so you can not create a large water fall with them.

Next in the line of pumps are Asynchronous and Synchronous electric. Similar in that they have a stainless-steel rotor assembly and have a vortex impeller to allow for higher water flow volume. Still lower energy consumption, easy to clean and easy to repair. The synchronous electric pump will shut down if it runs dry or something is blocking the flow and some are frost protected to -4 degrees. These pumps have a wide flow range and can be used in a wide variety of pond, pond-free, and hardscape features on a regular basis.

The direct drive pumps are one of the hardest to size and service. This type of pump has many uses from high to low flow needs. It is commonly misused because of the flow requirements. These pumps operate in a very tight window of best operating ranges. A lot of care is needed in choosing these types of pumps so they can remain in operation for many years.

What’s coming in the next generation of pumps and what is already here will blow your mind, if not make you think twice about your pump choices. 

Look towards the day all water garden pumps are DC brushless motor pumps. Your drills, drivers, blowers and mowers are seeing the light of brushless motors, including the vacuum world. More power, less energy and whole lot more ingenuity. Look now and towards the future as pumps in the water feature world change too.

First to market from Atlantic-OASE: the Aquarius Eco-Expert and AquaMax Eco-Expert. The first DC brushless motor pumps for ponds, pond-free, hardscape and fountains.

Just to highlight a few things the Aquarius Eco-Expert has:

  • DC brushless motor pump, very energy efficient
  • Robust stainless-steel intake screen passes debris particles up to 3/16 great for fountain nozzle use
  • Frost protection to -4 degrees
  • Integrated Environmental Function control shut off if runs dry or clogs
  • No minimum operation head heights 
  • Integrated earth grounding plate
  • Submersed or inline
  • Water types include chlorinated pool and salt water
  • Dynamic Function control 1 preprogrammed water scene alternating fountain heights 

When paired with the Eco or EGC cloud controller you have even more option on this pump. Making this pump first on the market to claim a 12-function pre-programmed water pattern along with things like runtime, pump status and malfunctions, complete adjustment of output flow and so much more. Also, when paired with the Cloud Controller, these functions can be controlled on the EGC App from anywhere in the world. One other unique feature is that it can pair with up to nine other devices like additional pumps and ProfiLux lighting systems  

Some highlights of the AquaMax Eco-Expert include:

  • DC brushless motor pump, very energy efficient
  • Robust stainless-steel intake screen passes debris particles up to 7/16 great for filtration use
  • Frost protection to -4 degrees
  • Integrated Environmental Function control shut off if runs dry or clogs
  • No minimum operation head heights 
  • Integrated earth grounding plate
  • Submersed or inline
  • Water types include chlorinated pool and salt water
  • Seasonal Flow control switch lowers flow and wattages as water cools to 40 degrees 

You can pair the AquaMax Eco Expert with the Eco or EGC Cloud Controller as well. Making this pump first on the market to adjust seasonally for water temperatures along with things like runtime, pump status and malfunctions, complete adjustment of output flow and so much more. When paired with the Cloud Controller, just like the Aquarius Eco-Expert, these functions can also be controlled on the EGC App from anywhere in the world. Pair it with up to nine other devices including the next generation ProfiClear drum filters and ProfiLux lighting systems. 

Look for much more on the line of DC brushless motor pumps in 2021. Changing the way the world pumps water!
