Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Raven 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by ThisOldGarageNJ 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Painters1953 Great for small pond
I have a cascading pond design - there is a top portion and a bottom portion and a sloping rocky link between them. I am using Model Ll1200 GPH pump to bring the water from the bottom portion to Model A16575, the 8" spillway, at the top section. I am using Model DD11330 at the bottom section to create a vortex in the lower section. The top section contains an aquatic planting area using Model A16549 for lights and aeration.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jakeparlay So Far So Good
We have been running this pump in a small outdoor pond with 3.5' waterfall continuously for several months now with no issues. Cleaning is easy, current draw is around 1 amp which is better than the unit it replaced. Flow is good, operation is quiet, and our fish are happy. The debris bag/filter, included, is a nice touch and we have found this unit to be nearly maintenance free.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Carlos 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Camano 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.
