Work with saltwater?

Can this pump be used to pump salt water?
Asked by: Dusty
Yes, for a while but this is not a salt water pump so it would not last long in salt water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased the Total Pond 1200 and Waterfall box Model A16575 after reading reviews and considerin... Purchased the Total Pond 1200 and Waterfall box Model A16575 after reading reviews and considering other options. Our water feature is a creek with pond less water falls, the total height is about 3-4 feet with 20 feet of line (1ft of head height per 10 feet of line). In addition, the pump is about 16-18 inches below the surface. So about 5-6 feet of total head height not including the distance below the surface. A couple things to keep in mind the water outlet is a ¾ inch male threaded fitting. There are no hose adapters included so that needs to be purchased with a hose. I would also recommend a check valve installed close to the pump and if needed a ball valve installed closer to the end of the line to adjust the flow to your liking. I tested both ¾ and 1 inch lines by measuring gallons per 30 seconds and multiplying up to GPH. I measured about 750 GPH at the top of the falls with the 1 inch and about 400 GPH with the ¾ inch line. The waterfall box we are using is 8 inches wide and the pump puts out a nice even flow across the waterfalls box with the 1-inch line. For better performance stay with a 1 inch line. For waterfalls, 100 GPH for every inch of waterfall width puts out a nice mellow like flow. Regarding the old vs new pump; the older version was a bigger and stronger pump and a larger sized threaded male adapter. The older was rated at 1250 GPH at 5 feet of height which the new is rated at 940 GPH for the same height. If you want similar specs as the older version consider a PondBoss 1250 which looks just like the old version of the TotalPond 1200. The current version works really nice with our water feature so no need for a pump any stronger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Powerful, Efficient 1amp Draw, Accurate 1200 GPH Flow Rating, Mesh Filter Bag Included I have a yard full of water features and this pump is the for the largest waterfall I'll be building to date. Rated at 1200gph at 5 feet of head, this pump delivers every single bit of it's rated flow. Lots of times pumps are rated at the pressure they can flow right at the pump itself only and it quickly drops off as height increases. Not so with this Total Pond pump. I tested this with an 8 inch spillway and 1 inch hose. It can accept up to 1 1/2 inch hose with it's adapter. With one inch hose you get a massive powerful flow at four feet of head pressure. A lot of assembly isn't required, this is ready to go as soon as you screw on the hose adapter. A 16 foot power cord lets you safely run the plug to your outlet far away from the water feature. This includes a mesh cover bag that will keep fine detritus and particles AND fish from getting caught in the pump. The pump also has a thick plastic final guard just in case a fish or frog get a bit too close. Once plugged and plumbed into your water feature, you'll be impressed with the power of this pump. I was actually surprised at the flow. Aside from the amazing power, this pump only draws 70W/1amp at 120v. That's pretty energy efficient and you'll appreciate it on your water bill. It has a built in handle that makes cleaning and locating the pump easy. If you have large water features and need a high flow pump, you can't go wrong with this selection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty Pump !!! This is a solid heavy duty pump, comes with an adapter so you can fit several different size outlets.. Very easy to use, just plug and play, as you can see from the pictures I used pvc pipe to plumb the waterfall splitting it into a tee at the top so I would have a wider flow. I laid out the piping first then built up the rocks around it. The recks are secured with construction adhesive and mortar, This pump puts out a solid steady flow to create a beautiful waterfall. Any beginner could easily tackle this job. It also comes with a net bag that fits around the pump to catch debris and filter the pond water.Its a sturdy solid well made pump that seems like it will last a lot of years;;

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LIGHT DUTY SUBMERSIBLE PUMP Great little pump for a water feature or waterfall. Has plenty of power to give about four and half feet of lift, says it will lift to five feet but it only trickles the water at that height. Comes with a screw on hose adapter for output. Whole unit sits in a leaf bag to keep the propeller free of debris in open water features. Standard 110 volt wiring that includes plug. Screw on adapter ideally fits various sizes of lift hoses. Make a beautiful water feature in any yard with this convenient little, easy to install pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An efficiency wonder I replaced my old 1900 GPH pump that used 230 watts with this one to save on energy. The LL1200 is rated to use 70 watts and I measured 73 watts with my wattmeter. You'd think that the new 1200GPH pump would pump less than the old 1900GPH pump, but you'd be wrong. Total Pond generously rates their GPH with a 5' lift. My old pump was rated at 1'. At 5' lift, the LL1200 does 1242GPH, the old pump does 1250. So I get the same amount of flow for less than 1/3 the energy usage. The information about fittings was confusing to me. The pump itself has a 1 1/4" Male Iron Pipe (MIP) fitting. A barbed adapter is provided that allows 1" or 1.5" inside diameter tubing to be pushed on. I have an algae problem in my pond, so I really like the idea of the provided barrier bag. One thing to note is if you use the barrier bag you need to run the cord out next to the outlet. In my case the pump goes in with the fitting down, so I lost about a foot of the 16' cord length due to using the barrier bag. I run the pump 10 hours a day, so it will save me about $70/year in electricity costs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The pump burns out in less the one year.( Twilce) This is a second pump I bought at the HD and it has stopped work and burned out , since past more the 90 days I couldn't return it. I talked to the customer service from Terrapond and model was made in 02/13 and it pass 3 years,although I bought it about 4 mothns ago, nothing they can do , since I do not have a receipt( the Home Depot can not make a copy if the receipt is over 90 days). Just money trow away. Running to buy another kind pump because my fish is very important . No more this kind

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price, high quality and quiet. I am super impressed by the pumping power of this waterfall pump. It far exceeded my expectation. I have a smaller one but I decided to wretched up the look of my waterfall. 1200 gallons per minutes is just what I needed. And you can barely hear it. Not only is it a quiet running motor but the falls mask the sound. I'm gonna use my old one to pump the water off of my pool cover this fall. It includes a 16 ft long cord and a 1 year warranty. I have not really been disappointed with any of the total pond products I have received.
