    Hi. Newbie here. Just want to ask what capacity of the pump should I get

    My pond total area is 15.m2 including 4m2 filter chamber. With depth of 0.70m
    So should be 10.5m3 so is 10 ton and it's equal to 10,500 litre of water?

    And if not mistaken from what I learn. Water turn over is 2-3? If I want to make it as 3. Is that mean use 10,500/3 = 3500. Mean I have to get a pump with 3500litre per hr?

    Please correct me if I am wrong.

    And my pond is build with a water wall feature with 3m long and 2m height measure from the water level. Just want to know did any situ here know how to calculate the quantity water that need to fall from the top equally to the bottom, I think that I have to take into consideration for buying pump also. Any situ can advise?

    3x turnover means you will need 3 units of 10,500l/hr pumps

    Thanks bro. That was a huge pump. Haha. If only one 15 ton /hr. Will it be sufficient?

    You can but that's bare minimum because even though your pump is rated at 15k/hr, the actual output will be less due to piping distance and pump working height.

Howdy, Stranger!
