I am very new to this. We’ve moved to a house that has a pond. It uses a Creekstone 264gph submersible pond pump that has stopped several time and was dismantled & cleaned well. It has a stainless steal pin that’s a bit beat up. What I’d like to know is could I I go up in power with a Creekstone 620gph submersible pond pump which has an inline flow control valve. Or is there something better out there for me? Thanks for any assistance.

Hello and welcome! Sorry, but I’m not familiar with that pump. This group is a great resource for finding equipment — lots of experience.

Let me amend that question then. if you substitute a pump of 264gph with a pump of 620gph that has a flow adjustment, does that new pump motor have to work harder?

Welcome to the forum. Are you concerned about hurting the pump with too much restriction? A manufacturer flow adjustment should keep the pump within safe parameters. As long as the minimum flow works for your setup, you should be fine.

Thank you! That is just what I needed to hear. Appreciate it!

it's a question we really can't answer as we have no clue about the size of the pond . and if a 600 gph will be too much flow for your pond theres a good deal of difference between a 200 and a 600 yes splitting the pipe can help as can ball valves
