With this particular pump, the cage will allow solids up to 8mm to pass through and be pumped out of the other side. This means the pond pump will require less maintenance compared to other pumps of its size as the cage will not become clogged up with dirt and debris quite so easily.As well as being a great pond pump to use with a filter box the Blagdon Force Hybrid is also excellent as a waterfall pump. The Force Hybrid delivers water at a higher pressure than most other filter pumps and so it is capable of powering a much higher waterfall. This means that the pump is capable of pushing the water further in distance, which is great if your filter box or waterfall are situated far away from your pump and you need to use a long hose. The Blagdon Force Hybrid is supplied with 10 meters of electrical cable to connect your pump. The inlet on the Force Hybrid comes with a staged hosetail, meaning you can use 12mm, 25mm, 32mm or 40mm hose (thats ½, ¾, 1, 1 ¼ and 1 ½).
We always recommend you use the biggest size hose that will fit into your filter box. If your filter box will take 20mm-40mm hose you should use the 40mm.This is because using the biggest hose size will reduce frictional loss of flow and will increase the pumps flow rate and allow your pond pump to run at its highest capacity. An excellent feature of the Blagdon Force Hybrid is the Inline Flow Control Valve. This is a separate part which is supplied with your pump, and can be put in line with your hose at a point where it leaves the pond. This means that instead of having to remove the pond pump from the pond to adjust the flow rate, you can quickly and easily manage this from outside the pond. Sludge Removal Mode and Cage Mode. The Sludge Removal Mode enables the Blagdon Force Hybrid pump to only draw water from the bottom of the cage rather than through the whole of the cage. This means that the pump only draws water up from the bottom of the pond, helping to remove as much sludge as possible. This is perfect for summer when your fish are highly active and feeding more, therefore producing more waste. All of that waste, along with uneaten food and leaves will sink straight down to the bottom of your pond, creating sludge. If the sludge at the bottom of your pond is left for a long period of time it can start to become toxic and produce high levels of ammonia. This can be extremely harmful to your fish and lead to all sorts of illness and poor water quality, not to mention it will give off a very nasty smell.... The Sludge Removal Mode makes it easy to help stop this from happening and is a great feature that you wont find on other filter pumps. The Cage Mode is great for the rest of the year. This uses all intakes on the pump cage to minimise clogging. This feature is particularly useful if you are leaving your pond unattended, e. Going on holiday as the pond pump is highly unlikely to block.
Its really easy to switch from one mode to another; you simply turn a dial at the side of the pump. Blagdon are a trusted and highly recommended UK brand which have been manufacturing pond equipment, fish food and pet products for over 60 years. Blagdon are easy to reach if you require spare parts for your Force Hybrid and you will find a full list of their parts and part numbers in your instruction manual supplied with the pump. Compared to most other filter pumps on the market the Blagdon Force Hybrid is able to move a greater volume of water to much higher head heights.
This makes it a great option for running a waterfall alongside your filter. Blagdon Force Hybrid Pump 14000. Max flow: 12900 Litres per hour. Max head: 4.80 Metres. Consumption: 220 Watts - 240 Volt.
