Is there any reason why someone couldn't use a pond pump for a sump, as long as it has the lift & gallons per hour needed?
Our local Orchard does have pond pumps. They have a Beckett Outdoor pond/Fountain submerged pump (G325AG20) that's rated @325 gph
. At 4 ft lift the gph
is 218 gph
. This almost compares to the Mag Drive MD5 which is rated at 500 gph
& at 4 ft lift of 310 gph
We're trying to find an alternative to having to mail order the Mag drive & wait for it to come in.
Thanks for the comments & opinions!
