Choose your pump well. Its better to get a slightly over-sized pump that you can then throttle down to the flow you prefer. A pump with a bit of back pressure reduces the cavitation in a centrifugal pump.
When looking for a pond pump always check the wattage of the pump before you buy. Volume may be perfect and the price may be good but if its rated over 400watts then you need to consider ongoing power consumption. There are sump pumps out there consume over 800watts. Do your research.
For a good flowing waterfall you will need approximately 1400 lts/hr for every 10 cm of waterfall width.
Larger volume submersibles are available and with more head height, call us for more info regarding your specific needs.
