2020 pond

rough calculations
10′ round x 2’deep = 157 cubic feet
1174 gallons

A good rule of thumb for garden ponds from 100 to 2000 gallons is to circulate the entire volume of the pond every 1-2 hours to ensure good circulation while providing enough flow for an aesthetically pleasing waterfall, stream or fountainhead. So pump should do 500-1000 gal/hour
gallons/hour decreases depending on height or fountain

1000 gallon/hour pump @ Danner is ~$140

8″ waterfall box ~$24
comes with 2″ fitting
