    Hi Dazraz, google "solar pond pumps uk", there are too many suppliers to list here, but one of them is bound to have something suitable for you.image

    Try a solar pump, no wiring and they are very good these days.  My son put one in when his electric one died, and has actually had to reduce the amount of spray it put out as it emptied his pond in 2 days!!  Much better for all, environment and pond.

    That's good to hear Bookertoo. I've often wondered how efficient these solar pumps really are.

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
