To install a pond pump you need to choose one that is appropriate for the size of your pond. It's best to set the pump on a rock, rather than the very bottom of the pond, in case anything ever causes the water to drain, it won't empty the pond. You will need to attach a hose to the pump to run the water to your water fall. This may require an adapter that you will find at any hardware store, just take the pump with you.Many pumps will have a small filter that simply snaps on to the pump. Run your electrical cord out of the water, over the edge of the pump and to your grounded outlet. Cover the cord if you desire.
