HALF OFF PONDS Aqua Pulse 3
The Aqua Pulse 3,000 GPH is a submersible pump you can use to supply water for a pond or waterfall. The pump itself is very quiet, making it suitable for quiet places, such as your pond. We noticed, however, that the pump does tend to run a little hot, and this jumped up to around 200 degrees. The pump is perfect for the small to medium pond or waterfall.
