How do I use a high GPH pump with a small pond?
Hello! I have my new pond up and running and I'm using a pump that my father in law gave me. It is a pondmaster mag drive pump that pumps 1200 gph. My pond is 300 gallons. I thought this would be great since it would circulate the water so much. The problem is that I have a waterfall and this pump is just shooting the water over the waterfall. My husband put a ball joint (that's probably not what it's called but I can't remember the exact name) on it so I can now adjust the flow, but I have no way of knowing how many gph it is pumping now so I'm worried it's not enough. How can I keep a powerful pump from shooting the water too fast over the waterfall? Thanks for any advice!
