These are larger flow pumps needed for filter systems and spectacular waterfalls with low power consumption. They have vortex impellers and a prefilter cage to easily handle soft solids for filtering.
Our Filter and Waterfall pumps have wear-resistant ceramic bearings, asynchronous motors and thermal overload protection.
Inline and dry-mounting is possible with a flooded suction. The cage is easy to remove for maintenance.
They are fully submersible pumps and the adjustable base plate can be rotated.
Suggested flow rates:
Waterfalls and streams up to 0.4m wide……………. 3000 to 4000 L/Hr
Large waterfalls and streams up to 1.0m wide …….. 6000 to 12000 L/Hr

This calculation gives a recommended flow-rate for the height and width of your waterfall, for your chosen thickness of water flow.
Choose the thickness of water you want running over the top of your waterfall. Generally, the higher the waterfall, the thicker the sheet of water should be.
Our suggestions are:
Height of Waterfall / Suggested Thickness of Water Flow
0.25m / 5mm
0.5m / 7.5mm
0.75m / 10mm
1.0m / 12.5mm
1.25m / 15mm
1.5m / 17.5mm
1.75m / 20mm
2.0m / 22.5mm
2.5m / 27.5mm
3.0m / 30mm
Calculate the suggested flow-rate by using the formula Width of Waterfall (in metres) x Thickness (in mm) x 1450 (constant) = Flow in L/Hr. Example: For a waterfall 1.0m high, choose 12.5mm thickness, the waterfall is to be 0.8m wide. 0.8m (width) x 12.5mm (thickness) x 1450 (constant) = 0.8 x 12.5 x 1450 = 14,500 litres/hour.
Choose a pump that is capable of providing the desired flow rate. For the above example, select a pump that is capable of 14,500 L/Hr (or greater) at 1.0m head height. It is important to remember that the flow is at the height of the waterfall, so you need to look at the flow-charts to find a pump that can give this flow or preferably more, at 1.0m head height. To allow for friction losses etc., in pipework, it is always best to over-specify.
I ordered my pump (Solar fountain pump with battery backup) on Friday afternoon and received it Tuesday. There was a substantial cost saving when compared with the local irrigation supplier suggested by the manufacturer. They would have had to order it in specially yet Strongman had stock and it was delivered to my door. Marvelous!!
Thanks Marion for your prompt action on my order. The pump motor arrived within a week and the bore is back in service. (purchased a Franklin Electric 4″ submersible motor)
I have bought two sump pumps from this business in the last few years. This is an excellent business as Marion has always been extremely helpful in choosing the best pump for the job. I have been very happy with how quickly my pumps have been delivered. An excellent business to deal with.
Thank you for your assistance in processing our order over the weekend. The pond pump arrived and was left at our door when we woke at 6.30 am today. Fantastic service. Much appreciated.
Thank you for your outstanding fast and friendly service. I highly recommend StrongmanPumps for easy ordering, great pricing and super fast delivery. I wouldn’t hesitate to order from you again in future.
Fast service and freight backed up with great tech support all made easy. Thanks Marion for your help.
Marion went above and beyond my expectations in listening to my needs and tailoring a solution for me. Amazing customer service and great product thankyou. (purchased a household pressure pump). Cheers Nick
Submersible bore pump at an excellent price and don’t be put off by the distance away as freight service was very prompt and included in the overall price. My first call or email will be to Marion when I need another pump. Highly recommend Strongman pumps.
Easy purchase and very impressive turn around between order and delivery. Thank you. (purchased a Franklin Electric submersible motor)
