When to use an AquaMax Eco Premium Pump?

Used in the right applications, OASE AquaMax Eco Premium Pumps offer excellent performance and reliability for very low energy use and have some very unique and innovative features to make use of. Here are some typical scenarios that suit the AquaMax Eco Premium and AquaMax Eco Twin pumps perfectly:

Pond Filtration.filtoclear_3000_set

Pond filtration is the primary application for the AquaMax Eco Premium pump. These are built for continuous operation and year round use, with frost protection for use in water as cold as -20˚C. The high flow, low head motor design enable these pumps to produce great flow rates whilst using minimal energy, ideal for turning water over through a pond filter which critically requires constant flow to maintain biological efficiency. The large strainer gauze of 10-11mm and solids-processing rotor will pass organic waste particles to the filter very efficiently.

Streams and Watercourses.waterfall

The AquaMax Eco Premium pumps are ideal pumps for delivering flow to streams and water courses, particularly those incorporated into natural ponds. The overall design and nature of the AquaMax Eco Premium pump lends itself perfectly to this type of application due the capability to deliver high flow at relatively low head and costing very little in energy to do so. The ability to pass particulate matter allows the pump to simply circulate most particles down the stream without blocking up.

The solids-handling design and build of the AquaMax Eco Premium pump make this ideal for use in turbid or dirty water applications where other pumps would struggle. The external strainer has a considerable 1000cm² surface area with large holes capable of passing sizeable particles. The interweaving, multi-dimensional ribbed design allows the pump to continue sucking water even with considerable leaf litter around the external strainer and the large rotor is robust enough to tackle anything that can be sucked through.

 

When NOT to use an AquaMax Eco Premium Pump?

AquaMax Eco Premium pumps are excellent pumping units when used in suitable applications, but these are not suitable for all scenarios. Here are some situations to avoid:

water bladeHigh Vertical Lift Pumping.

AquaMax Eco Premium pumps can produce a high rate of flow, but are limited to relatively low pumping head height, meaning the potential flow rate reduces quite dramatically when vertical lift is introduced. These pumps are best avoided in situations where the waterfall outlet or filtration inlet is situated much higher than the pond water surface level. In these situations OASE AquaMax Expert pumps are preferred as these are capable of greater lift. The AquaMax Eco Premium and AquaMax Eco Twin pump performance curves below shows how the flow rate reduces as lift increases with Q = litres per minute and H = vertical lift in metres.

Fountain Nozzles.fountain_set

AquaMax Eco Premium pumps are classed as ‘solids-handling’ pumps, this means they have the ability to suck and pass organic waste particles. This is ideal for supply to filtration systems, but disastrous if pumping water to a fountain nozzle as the holes will become blocked up very quickly indeed. Furthermore the AquaMax Eco Premium pumps lack the necessary delivery pressure to supply many fountain patterns and feature a side outlet; typical fountain pumps feature a top outlet for nozzle connection. For fountain nozzles, OASE Aquarius Universal pumps and OASE Aquarius Fountain Set pumps are far more appropriate.

Above Water Level Dry Installation.

The AquaMax Eco Premium pump are suitable for dry installation outside of the pond, but only by principle of ‘flooded suction’. This means that in order to install the AquaMax Eco Premium pump in a dry scenario, the pump and all entering pipework must be, and remain below the water line in order to ensure a constant gravity supply of water into the pump. This is because the pump is incapable of ‘self-priming’ creating a vacuum whereby air is purged from the suction pipe and replaced by water. AquaMax Eco Twin pumps can only be installed in underwater applications and cannot be used in any dry installation scenario. If a surface or above mounted dry pump is required, a Self-Priming Pool Pump is the more suitable choice.
