Max lift height is one of the primary performance metrics of submersible water pump. It means the maximum height that the pump can pump the water up to. So, the water flow rate will be ZERO at max lift height.
Another primary performance metric is max flow rate, it usually measured by “gallon per hour” (GPH). It doesn’t mean that the flow rate always be this value. The water flow rate gradually decreases with height. So, it will be max flow rate when lift height is ZERO.
In short, Flow and lift height are inversely related. Knowing this helps to choose the right fountain water pump.
How to choose the right pump?
For building an indoor, garden or pond fountain, safety is very important. Most fountains are working for 24hrs, the reliability of submersible water pump should be the primary consideration. Safety mechanism will be the bonus.
