Default Replacement Pump Recommendations

I found out today that Oase has "pulled out of the United States Market"
as far as selling pond pumps. I've been an Oase user for years. In fact,
I still have the first Oase pump I bought back in 1998 and it still
works. I like the mag drive pumps as they use less electricity than
other types.

Can anyone recommend a sturdy, economical submersible pump in the 3,000
gph range for my consideration?

TIA

JB

Thanks Joe. Do you happen to know the gph rating and watts used for the
pump?

Try Gppgling Oase Pumps. They do appear to be sold in the US.

They have a Nautilus 2600 that is in the general range you are looking
for.

You can get the pondmaster at http://www.pondliner.com/category/pondmaster_pumps

We now have a Pondmaster 2400 for our pond. It can be in or out of
the pond.

OASE pumps are still available but they're not re-stocking their pond
pumps in the US anymore. I was e-mailed this from an OASE
representative. The ones that I have located in stock, at dealers around
the country, are priced much higher than what I had been paying and
wouldn't off set the savings in electrical usage.

For example: The OASE Aquamax 2600 that I currently have cost me less
than $300. I located that same pump at a dealer in Texas and they wanted
$647 before s&h. That's why I'm looking elsewhere.

Thanks for the info though.

How about Danner? Or is that the same as Pondmaster? Yep, as she answers
her own question after googling. All my smaller ponds are those. Not sure
what a 3000 gph would run or efficiency, check this website:
