Selecting Pond Products
Choose the right products
What do you need to build a pond?
There are many products that work together to create a pond. A pond requires a pump, filter, and some kind surface agitation for aeration. Choosing the right products now will make future maintenance and projects more efficient. Create a pond the smart way with smartpond®.
Maintain a beautiful water feature by keeping the water moving.
After installing the liner, it’s important to add a pump. A pump will prevent stagnant waters that can lead to bad odors and mosquitoes nesting in your pond. Plus, you can add on water features such as a nozzle or spitter.
TIP: Choose a pump that will turn the pond’s total water volume at least once every hour. For example, if your pond holds 200 gallons of water you should choose a pump with a GPH (gallons per hour) rating of 200 or more. It's always better to go with a bigger pump and adjust the flow.

We recommend using the pumps that are labeled for pond use because we’ve designed them to specifically handle organic materials in the pond. Spitters and other water features can be powered with a pond pump when using the diverter valve as part of the Pond Nozzle Kit.
