What are the Benefits of Outdoor Pumps?

Outdoor water pumps are useful when water needs to be brought up from a lower level to a higher one. This can be helpful in facilities where the space for indoor pumps is limited or if there’s outdoor access. An outdoor pump is smaller than the usual pump because it is designed to move water from one level to another through an existing pipe.

Outdoor garden fountain pumps are usually quiet. Pump noise is caused by vibration, and most pumps these days don’t vibrate too much, especially if they are part of a concrete or resin fountain, waterfall, or pond fountain. The sound of the water typically cancels out any noise made by the pump. However, if your pump is still too noisy, remember it’s the vibration against its surface that typically causes the noise. One solution is to place a pump on a sponge or other surface that will soften the vibration. An exception is copper fountains, which, even outdoors, can have vibrating pump noise, but this is due to the material surrounding the pump, not the pump itself.

Outdoor Pumps versus Indoor Pumps – What’s the Difference?

The purpose of a water pump is to take water from one source and move it to another location. Indoor and outdoor water pumps are great for various uses but have different advantages. An outdoor water pump will be the best choice in most cases. The most obvious difference between the two is that indoor pumps use 2-prong plugs whereas outdoor pumps use 3-prong plugs. Read on to learn why you should choose an outdoor pump over an indoor option.

Indoor pumps are perfect if you have a small fountain in your home. These can also be helpful if you do not want a thick cord, as is used in outdoor pumps, and  since they are usually small, they are quieter. An outdoor garden fountain pump is better when placed outside, where a 3-prong plug is necessary for safety.

Tips on Maintaining Outdoor Pumps

If you’re living in a colder climate, it is important to rinse your outdoor fountain every season so that its pores do not become clogged with mineral buildup. This can lead them towards corrosion damage over time, depending on where they live, and weather conditions aren’t very extreme either!
