SUPERFALLS LOW-HEAD CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS

The Superfalls pumps are your best choice for a centrifugal pump for your pond. Consider the following:  Lower noise levels, lower initial cost, lower energy consumption, 2" inlets and outlets give higher flow rates, and greater energy cost savings... all point to Superfalls as the pump of choice for your next pump! See how much money Superfalls pumps can save you!

SUPERFALLS LOW HEAD CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS: KOI JOY has energy efficient centrifugal pumps available in our exclusive 115 -183 gpm series of Super-Energy-Efficient (low head) pumps. These pumps are extremely energy efficient, with GPA (gallons/amp) efficiency ratings of 20-45. This means that when you select one of our Superfalls pumps for your pond, aquaculture system, lap pool, or any other water recirculating system, you will get the maximum flow possible at the lowest operating cost possible! Our KJ11000LHC model draws less current and pumps more water than almost any other pond pump available. And best of all, this model is flow adjustable with the 2 inch flow control valve that comes with the pump! This pump is truly a one pump fits all ponds! Low head pumps such as these are perfect for use from 0-14 ft head and flow can be reduced to make any waterfall look and sound perfect!

New!

Now available, our SF5000LHC-PSC and our SF7000LHC-PSC Models of SuperFalls pumps. The PSC designation denotes a shorter, very reliable, PSC type motor, operating with 15% less power and fitting into a smaller space (more than 2 inches shorter) than the standard model of pump using a standard 48 frame split phase motor. For a discussion on motor types, advantages, etc. Check out our motor discussion below.

        

SUPERFALLS KJ11000LHC LOW HEAD Best Choice!

Choose the KJ11000LHC model for all sizes of ponds. For smaller ponds, reduce the flow as needed with the 2" flow control valve provided at no charge. This model of pump has a shut off head (elevation of no flow) of 18 feet. Use the KJ11000LHC with total head pressures up to 14 ft or less. Note: We can now offer two choices for your SuperFalls pumps.

Currently we can offer the more efficient and reliable PSC type of motor for our SuperFalls pumps up to the KJ7000 model. When ordering any model up to 5000, 7000 or 9000 , simply add PSC to the end of the the model #, as in KJ7000LHC-PSC.

Motor Types We Use

Split Phase Motors - Very reliable motors for pond and pool pumps. Uses a switch device to offer high torque for starting power, which then shifts to lower torque (and power consumption) for continuous running.

A split-phase motor uses a switching mechanism that disconnects the start winding from the main winding when the motor comes up to about 75% of rated speed. In most cases, it is a centrifugal switch on the motor shaft.

The split-phase motor's simple design makes it typically less expensive than other single-phase motor types made for industrial use. However, it also limits performance. Starting torques are low, typically 100% to 175% of rated load. Also, the motor develops high starting currents, approximately 700 to 1,000% of rated. Consequently, prolonged starting times cause the start winding to overheat and fail; so don't use this motor if you need high starting torques.

Permanent Start Capacitor (PSC)- Very reliable motors for pond and pool pumps. Uses lower torque for start and running, resulting in lower energy consumption (about 15% less), and because it doesn't require or use switching, it eliminates that possible failure mode. A psc type motor is by nature, more sensitive to voltage fluctuations, and performance is more likely to be affected when voltage drops more than a few percent. If your use involves voltage swings, use the standard 1/4 hp Split Phase model of motor.

PSC motors have several advantages. They need no starting mechanism and so can be reversed easily. Designs can be easily altered for use with speed controllers. They can also be designed for optimum efficiency and high power factor at rated load. And they're considered to be the most reliable of the single phase motors, mostly because no starting switch is needed. For these reasons, PSC type motors normally have a higher cost.

Motor Sizes

48 Frame - A common size of motor used for pump for ponds, pools, irrigation systems, etc. Refers to the diameter of the motor, with 48 frame being smaller than 56 frame.

56 Frame - A common size of motor used for pump for ponds, pools, irrigation systems, etc. Refers to the diameter of the motor, with 48 frame being smaller than 56 frame. Increase size usually results in greatly increased cost, with little bearing on reliability. Increase frame size of course also means a much larger sized pump and auxiliary equipment.

Motor Speed (rpm)

3450 rpm (2800 in Europe)- Pump discharge pressure and flow is directly related to motor speed. Pressure can be measured in psig, or in feet of water head (pressure). Each psig would be equal to 2.2 feet of head (static water pressure), or 10 psig of water pressure could also be denoted as 22 foot of water pressure. The pressure which is created by pumps operating at 3450 rpm in the US (60 hz power in the US) or 2800 rpm in Europe (50 hz power in Europe) is usually referred to as medium head pressure, and hence the pump is identified as a medium head pump (creating medium pressure). Increased rpm and pressure comes at an electrical cost by requiring use of high horse power motors and resultant increased heat. This may result in higher failure rates. Due to decreased rpm for pumps in Europe, pump pressures and flow will be less.

1720 rpm (1400 in Europe)- Pump discharge pressure and flow rates are directly related to motor speed. Pressure can be measured in psig, or in feet of water head (pressure). Each psig would be equal to 2.2 feet of head (static water pressure), or 10 psig of water pressure could also be denoted as 22 foot of water pressure. The pressure which is created by pumps operating at 1720 rpm in the US (60 hz power in the US) or 1400 rpm in Europe (50 hz power in Europe) are usually referred to as low head, and hence the pump is identified as a low head pump (creating low discharge pressure). Due to decreased rpm for pumps in Europe, pump pressures and flows will be less.

Low rpm or speed motors usually use fractional horse power motors, which consume much less electricity (amps and watts), and less heat. They are therefore usually thought of as being much more reliable.

*All Superfalls Centrifugal pumps (except for the low head plus models), can be installed to discharge in any of 4 directions for ease of installation. Install to discharge left, right, up, or down as needed. No longer do you have to glue on elbows at the pump outlet. 

Now all Superfalls low head pumps (except for the low head plus models), can easily be upgraded  up to 183 gpm with the new super quiet and efficient motor. Purchase the pump with the flow you need now and if you need more flow later, order a larger wet end to easily increase the flow. This simple modification can be done by anyone by loosening 4 bolts, rotating the pump, and re-tightening the bolts. If preferred, The SuperFalls or SuperPond will make the conversion at low cost. 

The new lower energy 1/4 hp model, comes wired with cord and plug for 115 volts (as shipped), but can easily be changed to 230 volts if desired! This allows you to plug them into a heavy duty extension cord for emergency operation (power supplied by generator upon loss of normal power). Most other pumps must be "hard wired" and are operated at 230 volts, making them unusable upon loss of normal power.  Superfalls low head pumps are among the quietest pumps available

Pump easily Upgradeable- Only Superfalls LHC pumps allow you to upgrade your pump to one of higher or lower flow with a simple conversion. Simply purchase the appropriate new wet end in chart below, loosen 4 bolts on motor, unscrew wet end from motor shaft, and screw on new wet end for new pumping capabilities. Or buy one pump and two different wet ends for two pumps in one! Then keep one wet end for a spare to replace the first when seals need repair - no down time while waiting for your local pump shop or The Pond Shop to change seals (for a small fee, we do replace seals on our pumps if returned to us). Buy the required pump today for your existing pond and if you make it larger later, or add a really big waterfall, upgrade to a larger model and save the old wet end for a backup. For a look at the pump flow curves, check out the information box below.  

 Exclusive feature - Full 360 degree output- Only Superfalls LHC pumps can be easily rotated on the motor to allow the pump's discharge to be directed as desired - up, down, left, or right for ease of installation. Properly directed flow reduces resistance, elbows, pipe length, etc. As with conversion above, it only requires that the owner loosen 4 bolts, rotate the pump on the motor, and tighten the bolts.

  All models of low head pumps are now available with the new improved, quieter, more energy efficient, permanently lubricated, 1/4 hp motor (see above). 

This curve shows the high flows available with the newest of the Superfalls low amp pumps. Our new model of pump uses a low energy 1/4 hp motor which can be run on 115 volts (as shipped) or on 230 volts if desired. This quiet and efficient motor can be used on the KJ7000LHC pump to increase its capabilities.

SUPERFALLS TM  PUMPS  

Utility Electrical cost per kwhr

This table shows annual costs or savings in kwhr and dollars when one pump is replaced with another more efficient pump. Compare old pump vs. new pump to determine the difference in amps. Locate your utility rate at left, then move over to the column that reflects your amp difference, to determine your annual savings.

To determine annual operating cost, use the column with the amps of the pump in use, go down to the row which corresponds to your utility rate to find annual operating cost of your pump at 115 volts (double this amount if pump is operating at 230volts).

 Note: To use this table for pumps running on 230 volts, you must double the amps to convert to amps at 115 volts. example: You are replacing a pump which draws 12 amps at 230 volts (12 x 2 = 24 amps at 115 volts), with one which draws 6 amps at 230 volts (6 x 2 = 12 amps at 115 volts). You will use the 12 amp column (24 amps - 12 amps = 12 amps) to determine your savings. If your utility rate is $0.25 per kwhr, you would save approximately $3,030 per year. Just remember to double the amps on any motor that runs on 230 volts to accurately determine the kwhr and dollar savings from this table.

Table below assumes that the compared pumps are operated at 115 volts.

SUPERFALLS LOW-HEAD PLUS PUMPS

 

 

SUPERFALLS KJ13000LHP-T LOW HEAD PLUS!

Select a KJ9,000LHP or a KJ13,000LHP model for those large ponds with higher than normal waterfalls, or bead filters or other filters which have high back pressure. The shut-off head (elevation of no flow) on these pumps is the highest available for a low head pump, 27 ft. Select a low head plus when total head is more than 14 feet and less than 22-23 ft. 

SUPERFALLS LOW HEAD PLUS CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS: As great as the low head pumps are, there are some pressures or heights where even the largest model cannot pump. Higher pressure filters such as bead filters, sand filters, and extremely long pipe runs, or high waterfall may call for our KJ9000LHP or even the larger KJ13000LHP models. These energy efficient pumps offer high flow rates with pressures high enough to operate almost any type of bio-filter. For the largest leaf trap available on a pond pump, choose the models such as the KJ9000LHP-T or the KJ13000LHP-T. See flow curve below.

Now you can have that high waterfall and still save money with your energy bills. Our Superfalls Low Head Plus Waterfall pump has unique characteristics not available with any other low head energy efficient pond pump.

Highest shut off head for a low head energy efficient pump! With a shut off head (point of no flow) of 27 ft, you can still have high flow with an energy efficient pump, saving lots of money in operating costs all year long. If you need higher pressure because of a high waterfall or a pressure type of filter such as the Predator, choose one of our Low Head Plus Waterfall pumps.

Largest leaf trap and inlet for higher flows and less trap cleaning! This priming pot has a clear lid and measures almost 15 inches tall and 9 1/2 inches around making this the largest trap available on a pond pump. Our large priming pot or leaf trap and basket have 3-4 times the volume of standard leaf traps which mean less cleaning even under abnormally dirty conditions. The large priming pot on the KJ6000LHP-T and the KJ9000LHP-T models have a 2" inlet and outlet, and after initially filling your system, you don't have to worry about loss of prime. It's built in check valve prevents water from flowing backwards into the pond when power is interrupted. The KJ13,000LHP-T model has a 3" inlet in it's leaf trap and a huge stainless steel basket for highest flows of over 200 gpm when using the leaf trap, or up to 230 gpm without the leaf trap!

SUPERFALLS MEDIUM HEAD PUMPS

Our medium head pump model SUPERFALLS 10-7000MH uses a 3/4 hp motor to allow a high flow of 7000 gph (115 gpm) at higher pressures. These pumps use less electricity swimming pool or irrigation pumps used by some pond owners and can pay for themselves in energy savings in as little as 6-12 months. At an average monthly cost of $140 / amp / year (charges are actually based on kilowatt-hrs), most consumers can save thousands of dollars by replacing their existing pumps with these energy misers. The 10-7000MH is available in single speed, medium head  or as 10-7000MH-2S (2 speed, medium and low head) for higher efficiency operation.

The high capacity, low head pumps are ideal for up-flow filters, waterfalls, or any high flow recirculation system that doesn't require high pressure. For higher pressure requirements, choose our 3/4 hp SUPERFALLS 10-7000MH. or other higher rated pumps as shown below. Pumps 10-3000LHC thru 10-8000MH are supplied pre-wired with 115 volt cords and plugs, and are furnished with two slip fit unions for easy installation and removal. The model 10-9000MH is available in 115 volt models without cord or plug (have your electrician hard wire or connect the cord for you). 10-9000MH is also available in 230 volt version. All medium head single speed pumps thru 10-125KMH must be wired for 230 Volts, and are shipped without cords or plugs. All pumps (except for the10-1200LH with 1") have 2" inlets and outlets for highest possible performance. Replace your old pump with one or two of these energy misers and get more water for less money.

2 speed medium head pumps are available for use with Predator and other bio-filters which may require high pressure and flows for adequate backwash. Use the low speed for the same energy efficient operation as our low head pumps. 2 speed switches are built into the back of the pump motor for ease of operation.

Our 115 volt pumps (up to 10-8000MH) come pre-wired with a 6 ft, 115 volt cord and plug, and include two slip unions at no extra charge (10-9000MH and all 230 volt pumps do not come pre-wired). Leaf traps for these pumps or any other pump are available for $89.99 each. These large 6" traps have a clear plastic top with large "O" ring for positive seal and are easily opened and closed. The LT-6 has a 2" inlet and 2" outlet.

New! SUPERFALLS ENERGY EFFICIENT SUBMERSIBLE PUMPS

SF6600 SUBMERSIBLE PUMP

SUPERFALLS Submersible Pond and Waterfall Pumps introduces our new Vortex Impellor driven Mag Drive water pumps specifically designed for high flow and maximum pumping height. These pumps by SuperFalls are Mag Drive, and use Vortex Impellors for maximum flow and height, and to be more energy efficient and more reliable than typical submersible pumps. With capacities from 1200 to 6600 gallons per hour and maximum pumping height to 30 feet, these pumps are ideal for waterfalls in medium to large ponds. Our pumps are built with ceramic bearing surfaces, so they are rated for continuous duty. Our unique "inlet baffle" intercepts twigs, pine needles, etc. to prevent damage to the impeller, while our removable strainer case wraps completely around the pump to allow it pass 3/8th inch solids with no damage. The design of our case also reduces the frequency of cleaning required. 

The 3 large pumps discharges are 1 1/2" female pipe threaded, or 1 1/2" male pipe threaded. Optional fittings to connect to 1 1/2" or 2" rigid pipe or flex pvc pipe, or barbed fittings for tubing are available if desired (see items 10-1515B and S, and 10-1520B and S below). Our new pond and waterfall pumps continue the tradition of supplying the best available pond pumps, built to last, and built to purchase and operate affordably.

New! SUPERFALLS SUBMERSIBLE POND AND FOUNTAIN PUMPS

 

SUPERFALLS Submersible Pond and Waterfall Pumps SuperFalls has invited Koi Joy to be the first to introduce their new Mag Drive water fountain pumps specifically designed to provide the most complete fountain pumps available. These new pumps offer very good performance as a pond pump alone, but when coupled with the optional fountain head kit, these pumps can make water displays offered by no other small pump manufacturer. With capacities from 550 to 2100 gallons per hour and maximum pumping height to 15.75 feet, these pumps are ideal for use for fountains in small to medium ponds. SuperFalls pumps are built with ceramic bearing surfaces, so they are rated for continuous duty. Our unique "strainer enclosure" intercepts particles to prevent damage to the impeller, while our removable strainer case wraps completely around the pump to allow it pass small solids with no damage. The design of our case also reduces the frequency of cleaning required. 

The pumps discharges are 1" barbed fitting installed, but when removed, the pump will accept a huge assortment of various fountain display heads as shown on and with the pump on the left, above. The optional fountain display kit replaces the normal barbed outlet as shown on the pump on the right. An extension shown on the left pump extends to more than 31" above the base of the pump. Display heads provided in the kit include wave, gusher, multi-spray, geyser, and a bypass valve with flow control valve. Our new pond and fountain pumps continue the tradition of supplying the best available pond pumps, built to last, and built to purchase and operate affordably. The New pumps below will be available beginning in late December of 2008.

SUPERFALLS WATERFALL AND FOUNTAIN PUMP TIMER

 

Now you can control your pumps operation with our new SuperFalls pump timer. This timer will turn your pumps on or off at the pre-selected time, wherever you are. You can operate your waterfall with two pumps and save energy at night by shutting off one pump, to be restarted in the morning. Note: If your waterfall is the sole source of aeration for your fish, we do not recommend shutting off your only pump at night. Also, you must install flapper check valves on your pumps to prevent reverse flow thru the pump that is shut off.

The WaterFall and Fountain Pump Timer is rated at 15 amps, so it will safely operate large pumps (up to 1 hp), lighting, air pumps, etc. You could use one of these to turn on air pumps at night if you don't want to see the air during the daytime. You can turn on your fountain lights or landscaping lights at night. The timer can be set to turn on and off up to two cycles per day or night. Energy saved by shutting off pumps when not needed, will pay for this timer many times over!

Mounted on a pedestal 15" high, the unit can be bolted to a deck near an outlet (cord is 24" long).

SOME BASICS ABOUT PUMPS AND GPA RATINGS 

CHOOSING THE RIGHT PUMP! 

To select the proper pump for your pond, first determine whether you would like a submersible pump or a centrifugal pump. We normally recommend SuperFalls centrifugal pumps for efficiency, reliability (longer life), and ease of maintenance. 

Next, determine the total head losses that your pump will have to overcome. The total head losses are equal to the combination of the static head height (elevation in feet that the water must be pumped to above the pond's surface), and the line and hardware head losses (additional discharge pressure required of the pump to overcome long piping losses, or pressure filter losses, etc). Together these will decide the pressure range that the pump must be able to put out, ie low head, medium head or high head (keep in mind that the annual cost of operating a medium head or high head pump will greatly exceed it's initial purchase cost). A low head pump operates best when the total head losses are less than 6-7 ft. If you are only pumping water from your pond to a filter or waterfall which is 2-4 foot above the surface of the pond, and your piping runs are not to long, are 2" or greater, you should plan on using a low head pump. If your system requires a pump which can overcome 10 or more feet of total head losses, plan on using a medium head pump. 

Note: Head losses may be reduced by use of larger diameter pipe (2-3"), shorter lengths and less turns in the pipe, avoiding unnecessary heights, fittings, and any pressure filters. Use only pumps with 2" inlets and outlets. 

Now determine the required flow rate by for your pond. Normally we recommend that you circulate your pond's water once each 1/2 hour to hour to assure that you have enough water movement to remove particulates and solids from your pond for retention in your filtration system. For really large ponds of 10,000 gallons or more, it may be necessary to circulate your water less often. Once you have determined the desired flow rate, we suggest that you consider reaching that flow with two or more pumps instead of one, for reliability and insurance reasons. 

Where practical, select a pump which operates at the voltage available at the location where it will be installed, usually 115 volts. For ease of installation, select a pump which is wired for 115 volts with a cord ready to plug into an outlet. 

Finally, determine the type of centrifugal pump required by going through the 3 options below.

Major Differences Between Centrifugal Pump Types:

LOW HEAD

Generates useful pressures to 10 ft of water pressure (4-5 psi).

A low head pump may not be very effective in backwashing certain sand type filters (Predators and some others) which require higher pressures and flows for backwash cycle.

Use a medium head pump when pumping to a waterfall more than 10 feet above the ponds' surface. You can also use a low head pump when pumping through low head filters (Aquadyne, mat filters, large open type filters, etc.).

Most efficient type

MEDIUM HEAD

Generates useful pressures to 30-35 ft of water pressure (12-15 psi).

If pump is medium head, while effective in backwash cycle, it may not be energy efficient during majority of use.

Use a medium head pump when you must pump to higher elevations, pump the water through sand filters or other filters which require high pressure.

 

 

Least efficient, most power

 

TWO SPEED

Operates as both low head and medium head pumps. When higher flow and pressure is required, as for filter backwash, the pump is switched into a higher speed.

When such pressure is not required, the pump is switched back to the lower speed to benefit from it's greater energy efficiency. Superfalls 2 speed pumps deliver maximum efficiency during low speed operation, and maximum power at high speed.

The 1 hp 10-8KMH2S operates with the same flow/pressure characteristics as the single speed 1 hp medium head version when at high speed, and the energy efficient 10-4000LH when at low speed. More info

The Best of Both Worlds!

CORRECTLY INSTALLING THE PUMP! 

You may install your centrifugal pump in a dry box or pit lower than the water level in the pond to assure it stays primed. If you install the pump in a box, you should provide for fresh air ventilation by blowing fresh air into and out of the box. See our vent fans at here

You may also install your pump above ground (limit pump height to 1' or 2' above pond water level). Be sure to install a swing check valve on the suction of the pump, and another one on the discharge side of the pump. These will maintain prime on the pump, and also prevent back-flow of water from your filter, waterfalls, etc. when necessary to open your leaf trap.

We recommend that you consider installing a strainer basket or trash basket before the pump to protect it from leaves and trash. You may want to mount your pump on a mounting base or plate which has in turn been secured in concrete. To reduce energy costs and improve the flow in your stream or waterfall, you should minimize the height and the length of your waterfall and stream. 

Your bio-filter could be located with its outlet supplying a waterfall and/or stream. 

Static head height is measured from the surface of the pond, to the height where the water is to be pumped to. In other words, even if your pump draws from the bottom of your pond, the water is only being moved a vertical distance from the surface of the pond to the new level where discharged. There may be some additional head losses due to long horizontal runs, elbows, T's, etc. We recommend that you attempt to minimize the height, distance, and turns, elbows, etc. that your pump must move the water through. A waterfall 10 ft high or more may require a medium head pump and thus more energy to supply than a 2 to 4 ft waterfall or stream. We have seen some nice looking waterfalls with small changes in elevation. 

If you are building a large pond, we recommend that you consider use of two or more pumps rather than attempting to get full flow with a single pump. Multiple pumps offer some real benefits besides just energy savings. For example, two 10-7000LH pumps can provide up to 230 gpm flow for much less energy than one large pump and also allow you a measure of insurance against loss of flow. Multiple pumps also allow you to shut off one or more pumps for more energy efficient winter or night time operation. Note: bio-filters require 24 hr flow for proper operation. 
Our large medium head Superfalls pumps can supply flows to 250 gpm. You should determine the flow you need and use two or more pumps to achieve the required flow at the head pressure needed. Your initial cost to purchase multiple smaller pumps will be slightly more, but this extra cost will be returned to you many times over in electrical savings and peace of mind. Our pumps and their flows are listed above.

GPA ratings allow the consumer to easily compare one pump with another one operating at the same voltage (For energy comparison, you must double amps on pumps wired for 230 Volts). To correctly use GPA ratings, you should first determine exactly what your requirements are for head pressure, flow, voltage, etc. Generally, a low speed pump (1725 rpm vs 3450 rpm) will use less electricity than the higher speed pump. Two low hp pumps will use less total electricity than one of larger hp even though their total flow is the same. Actual electrical consumption and cost is calculated by multiplying Voltage X amps. This means that a pump which uses 1.6 amps at 230 Volts will use 3.2 amps when it is wired for 115 Volts and (this is why you must double the amps on a pump wired for 230 Volts to correctly compare electrical energy usage). Using these facts, we can say that for low head systems, you will save energy and money by installing one or more of our Superfalls LH pumps in place of all competing pond pumps

NOTE: Some people think that they can save energy by wiring their pumps up to 230 volts since their amps are reduced by one half. Since actual energy consumption is based on kilowatt hours, and that is calculated by volts x amps, then when you double your volts to 230 volts, and thus decrease your amps by half, you still wind up with the same kilowatts and thus the same electrical bill. The only way to decrease your costs is to decrease the amps at 115 volts as we have done with our Superfalls pumps!
