Features and Benefits of Aquascape’s Ultra™ Pump Aquascape Ultra Pump

Aquascape’s magnetic driven line of pumps is designed for a variety of water feature applications.  The Ultra™ water pump’s small size and wide range of flow rate options make this pump a perfect solution for providing water to just about any type of decorative fountain.  It can be used to run ornamental spitters, create a cascading waterfall, or supply water to external filters. The Ultra™ Pump can also be converted into a fountain pump with the optional Ultra™ Pump Fountain Kit.   Easy to Install A convenient selection of fittings is provided with the Ultra™ Pump.  Each fitting includes a multi-hose style connection that is adaptable to almost any hose or tubing style in the industry.  The addition of these fittings help to save you time and eliminate the frustrating process of trying to find the right plumbing fittings at the store.

The convenient 3-way diverter fitting provides you the ability to connect and adjust the flow rates to as many as 3 different pumping locations.  Simply adjust the valve located on the fitting and you can easily dial in the perfect water flow.   Energy Efficient The Ultra™ Pump is equipped with a magnetic driven motor that makes this pump very energy efficient.  For example, the Ultra™ 1100 produces over 1,100 gallons per hour, but costs less to operate than a 100 watt light bulb!

The magnetic driven motor on the Ultra™ Pump consists of only one moving part, the magnetic impeller. This simple design provides you with years of trouble-free performance, as well as makes the pump very easy to maintain.  The pump is completely serviceable, allowing you the ability to easily inspect and replace the impeller if it is ever needed.

An outer pre-filter cage, combined with an interior foam pre-filter helps protect the pump from debris and is easy to remove for cleaning.   Best Value The Ultra™ Pump’s combination of energy-efficient mag-drive performance, high volume water flow and ease of installation makes the Ultra™ Pump one of the best values in the water garden industry.
