Energy saving magnetic Hybrid Pond Pumps are the latest in cost efficient pond construction. Hybrid pond pumps can be found ranging from 200 to over 6000 GPH in flow. These cost effective submersible pond pumps utilize cutting edge technology in order to deliver large volumes of water at very low costs. Hybrid magnetic drive pumps usually consume less than one half the energy of the same capacity direct drive pump. Energy saving Hybrid Pumps can provide your pond or water garden with circulation while saving hundreds of dollars per year in electricity costs. In areas with soaring electricity costs this savings can be even greater. Hybrid pump technology has dramatically increased in the last 5 years and this new breed of pumps have become part of an ever increasing number of ponds and water gardens. The technology used in the construction of magnetic drive pumps usually will also provide a pump with a greater life span than a direct drive pump. Compared to an equally rated direct drive pump the hybrid pumps may not yield the same total head pressure. What this means is that when pumping to great heights a direct drive pump will deliver more flow than a hybrid pump. At low heights you will see virtually no difference between the flow discharge of the Hybrid or a direct drive pump. Our recommendation is that if your water feature requires a pump that raises the water 6-8 foot or less, you may have a great candidate for an energy saving Hybrid magnetic drive pump.
