COMPLETE SELECTION: We have 7 sizes & 13 models. Click on "PonicsFarm" below the main page title to see them all. We designed this low voltage model as a low priced replacement pump for the Homedics PP-PT808L1 and included a high quality 5 foot waterproof cord with socket, a 10 watt finger light and switch. Comes with adjustable input flow-rate screen. Comes with two outlet adapters for either 1/4" or 1/2" inside diameter tubing.
DURABLE QUALITY: Our Polished Stainless Steel #205 Impeller Shaft insures long pump life. Epoxy Resin Encasement of key internal motor components prevents unwanted conductivity and corrosion of metal parts. This pump incorporates a magnetic wet-rotor design, so there is no seal to fail that would damage the pump motor.
EFFICIENT: Neodymium Iron Boron (NdFeB) Magnets are used in all our electric motors because they are the most powerful permanent magnetic materials commercially available and increase energy efficiency. Water-Lubricated Nitrile Bushings are used because they possess a very low coefficient of friction, have inherent vibration-dampening qualities and are non-polluting.
SAFE & EASY: Safe for fish with no exposed copper and oil free. Easy to clean with no tools required to disassemble and clean filter/impeller. Our SJTW Electric Cord is waterproof, 18# gauge copper wire, molded plug with ground, heavy duty flexible vinyl jacket, resists oil/grease/moisture, abrasion resistant and very good flexibility at all temperatures.
SPECIFICATIONS: Fresh water only with flow Rates of 40 Gallons Per Hour (GPH) @ 0' Lift; 28 GPH @ 1' Lift; Max Lift - 1' 8". Dimensions are 1.61" x 1.42" x 1.22". Low Voltage 12VAC, 2.5 WATTS. Transformer: 120VC, 60Hz. 1 year limited warranty when sold by PonicsFarms.
HOW TO CHOOSE A HYDROPONIC, AQUAPONIC, ALGAPONIC, AQUARIUM, POND OR FOUNTAIN PUMP
- "Maximum Flow Rate" is meaningless because it is at ZERO lift.
- "Maximum Head/Lift" is meaningless because the flow at that height is only a trickle.
You need to choose an affordable quality pump that produces the "desired flow at your required lift" at the lowest wattage.
Step 1: Determining Desired Flow Rate Hydroponic Systems - typically flow through a single loop allowing a single pump and need a flow rate near 100 GPH for each grow bed loop up to 120 feet. Flood/drain beds - need 2 to 4 cycles per hour. Fish tanks - need a least one exchange per hour or extra oxygenation. Waterfalls - need 100 GPH for each inch of width. Step 2: Calculating System Lift Measure the "vertical distance" from the "top" of the water in the pump tank to the pump discharge point. Step 3: Pump Selection Considerations - Continuous instead of intermittent pump duty cycle greatly increases pump life, plus no need for a timer or level control. - Low cost (
