The Aquascape 12-PN 10000 Solids-Handling Pond Pump is ideal for use in ponds, Pondless® Waterfalls, and other water feature applications. Known for durability, performance, and value, the 12-PN 10000 Solids-Handling Pond Pump is constructed of stainless steel and composite resin for strength and corrosion resistance. The pump has a maximum flow rate up to 10,000 gallons per hour and its semi-vortex impeller design enables the pump to handle solids effectively, resulting in less maintenance and trouble-free performance. The energy-efficient, continuous-duty, direct-drive motor operates at lower temperatures, extending the life of the pump significantly. The pump also contains a built-in thermal overload, protecting it from damage if ever run in low-water conditions. The 3-inch threaded discharge makes installation quick and easy. The 12-PN 10000 Solids-Handling Pond Pump also carries a 2-year limited warranty.
