    I have a 3100 gallon pond. I have a 36W clarifier to add to the pond. What size pump do I need for preferred flow rate of 4400 gph? I have a separate system for filtering pond, this pump would just be the turnover for the clarifier.

    The slower the water goes into the clarifier the better it will work

    Yes, if a 4400 gph flowrate is mentioned by the manufacturer, it is meant to designate the maximum. Any flow rate less than 4400 gph is OK.
