Pumps and kits are mainly used for outdoor ponds, garden fountains and waterfalls, for indoor fountains. Fountain pumps that are outdoors are equipped with filters. Without them, the pond will quickly become dirty and begin to give off an unpleasant odor.
Above all, if you keep your fountains on all the time, it prolongs the life of the pump because it doesn’t turn on and off. With proper care, your pump should last at least a year, if not 3-5 years. Keeping it running as often as possible will extend the life of the pump.
