The name 'Dry Surface Pump' should be self explanatory .. but to avoid accidents or confusion we will try to clarify the definition of a Dry Surface Pump.
A 'true' Dry Surface Pump that is not classed as a Duel Purpose Pump is one that must under no circumstances ever be submerged, stood in water or left out in the elements - to do so may have disastrous results and may cause injury or perhaps even worse.
All Dry Surface Pumps should be placed on firm dry level ground where there is no possibility of water, or rain, from splashing on to the pump especially the electrical connections to these pumps - we cannot stress this enough and remember that Electricity and Water do not mix... protect yourself and anyone else that may come in contact with this equipment that you must fully accept responsibility for .... If you are in any doubt - then for goodness sake call in a qualified electrician.
There are a great many Dry Surface pumps on the world market - and when we are all first considering building a pond, whether this is a state of the art Koi pond, or perhaps just a small garden pond to have as an attractive water feature, then our minds go towards what sort of a pump will be needed and if you decide on a Dry Surface pump then there are some excellent ones available and we are pleased to be able to offer our customers the very best - pumps we have tried, tested and which we know will give years of reliable service if not abused.
The size of the Dry Surface pump you will need depends on what you are hoping to achieve and the overall volume of water that you are wishing to move ... and whether your pond is just going to be a small garden feature, or you are proposing a large pond, with perhaps an added feature such as a waterfall like Niagara falls.
