Default Calculating water lift?

Exactly what is the proper way to calculate water lift?

Let's say I have a 10' total rise and my pump is a 300gph.

How do I figure out the new gph?
There must be a simple/ standard formula.

BTW, the information and friendliness in this ng is rather unique. The posts
& info has helped me immensely, even though I had to drain & "fix" my
mistakes twice. The pond looks wicked awesome now, thanks to info from
people in here.

look at the pump specs., as all have diff.
lift. 300 gph @ 10' would be at least a
750-900 GPH pump.

Most of the better pump companies have flow charts for their pumps on their
web pages. Some have themn in the box that the pump comes in. Some don't
want you to know. Aquatic Eco has charts in their catalog for a lot of
pumps that don't furnish charts. If you look at the flow charts, there will
be a line for your pump, and where it crosses the head height, on the other
axis will be the flow. It varies greatly by pump design, speed, power,
manufacturer, etc.

Others will have to do the lift calculation. Any chance that you can post a
pic of your pond somewhere?

Probably by next week. Still haven't got a digital camera yet. My birthday
is in 3 weeks so who knows.
