seems too good to be true. 4280 gph @ 170 watts w/3 year warranty. poised to buy one, opinions/experience please
The instruction manual that came with my pump has it listed at 3.2 amps at 110 voltage.Looks good - very low wattage for gph performance. I wonder what the amperage rating is? That constant amp draw is what really determines the monthly drain on the wallet.
Keith I believe yours are. From talking to john (Haro) on here before I purchased mine, it's the Laguna fountain pumps that are now being made in China. Problem with those is week impellers that break easily. Both of mine (4280 & 2400) over wintered in my pond this past winter about 2 1/2' below water level and started right up this spring. Like you, I've been happy with mine. The water flow from 4280 pretty much equals what I had from my old smart pond 5180 pump, but I use about the same or less in electricity for both as I did for that one. Oh and if your still moving & looking for a new liner to build a new pond, check out Menards. I ordered a 20 x 25' for about $350 today with tax, free shipping to the store. Best deal I could find.I have two lagunas and am very happy with them. I don't think mine are Italian made but still no problems.One of them froze up int the winter one year and started right up when it thawed.
