By simply turning the handle you can rinse and clean the interior sponge, so there is minimal manual cleaning needed. Once rinsed with the turning handle, the outlet can be opened to discharge dirty water containing debris until it runs clean and basic maintenance is complete.Swell Filter Pump Deluxe - The pump supplied with this kit is the Swell Filter Pump Deluxe, which delivers the correct amount of water to the filter to ensure the filter works at its best.

What is the difference between a pond pump and a filter? Pond pumps are sometimes confused with filter pumps and boxes by first-time pond keepers but they are actually very different pieces of hardware.
Pond pumps are designed to propel water by taking it from a large reservoir, such as a garden pond, and firing it toward something, such as a pond filter. A pond filter is designed to have dirty water fired through it very quickly to remove debris, sludge, algae and other contaminants. This removal is sometimes done mechanically, with filter foams, chemically, with charcoal and other purifiers, or biologically, using helpful bacterial colonies. When used together, a pond pump and filter will help maintain a healthy pond and prevent common pond water issues.
