The AquaMax Eco Classic filter and waterfall pump moves debris from the pond bottom to the pond filter, helping to maintain the ecosystems health, natural balance and beauty. It functions as the central point of the pond filtration center and features a large surface wrap-around strainer to catch large particles of pond debris (up to ? in). The AquaMax Eco Classic pump features Environmental Function Control (EFC), an automatic system shut-off that prevents damage in the event of a dry run or blockage. This model can function when submersed or dry, and its compact design allows for discreet and strategic placement in aquatic environments. It is designed with a grounding plate to prevent electrical hazards to ensure safety. Energy efficiency is reflected in its engineering to mitigate costs of operation. A special hose adapter is included to accommodate a range of hose sizes and tubing, including kink free tubing, spiral tubing and Sch40.
