Koi Pond Pumps
Choosing the right water pump for your pond can make all of the difference in the world. Just because a pump may cost less to buy, it is not always the way to go. The most important thing to remember is the electrical usage when looking for a water pump for your pond. To maintain a healthy environment for your Koi pond or water garden, you MUST run your water pump through your filter 24 hours a day, seven days a week. So it is essential to pick the right water pump for your Koi pond or water garden. Water pumps have variances in electrical usage and electrical costs. If you think of ten’s it’s easy to get a good idea of these costs. My example is: If your kilowatt-hr rate is $0.10 and the motor usage is ten amps 24/7, it’s the cost is $1000 per year or $83.33 per mo. (With that number in mind.) If your motor usage is 2.8 amps divide that into $83.33 for a monthly cost of $29.36 or $357.13 per year.
