The Aquascape 5-PL 5000 Solids-Handling Pond Pump is ideal for use in Ponds, Pondless® Waterfalls, and other water feature applications. Known for durability, performance, and value, the 5-PL is constructed of stainless steel and composite resin for strength and corrosion resistance. The pump has a maximum flow rate up to 5,300 gallons per hour and its semi-vortex impeller design enables the pump to handle solids effectively, resulting in less maintenance and trouble-free performance. The energy-efficient, continuous-duty, direct-drive motor operates at lower temperatures, extending the life of the pump significantly. The pump also contains a built-in thermal overload, protecting it from damage if ever run in low-water conditions. The 2 inch threaded discharge makes installation quick and easy. The 5-PL also carries a 2 year limited warranty. Aquascape is passionate about the products we produce, providing unique products, designs and features that stand above the competition.
