The EXT 18000-3P Pond Pump is equipped with a 3-phase motor, perfect for water features that demand both high flow and efficiency from a non-submersible pump. Its fan-cooled, oil-free motor operates quietly at low RPM, ensuring a long lifespan. Please note that the pump does not come with an electrical cord, and the junction box on the motor allows for customizing the electric supply between 115V and 230V to meet specific project needs.
The optional variable frequency drive (VFD) allows for control of the pumps water flow rate by varying voltage and frequency (hertz) of the motor. This feature can be used to schedule pump speed changes during specific times of day to save energy, or for increased flow over waterfalls. Additionally, the VFD can gradually ramp up pump speed to minimize stress on plumbing fittings during start-up.
