Danner's HY-Drive pumps by Pondmaster are unique, high capacity pumps designed specifically for use in larger pond installations. Next generation HY-Drive design combines the benefits of magnetic and direct drive technologies to deliver an extremely quiet, energy efficient, low maintenance pumping source. This pump is easy on the wattage, yet powerful enough to create a dynamic, attractive waterfall or drive a medium skimmer. The heavy duty, polypropylene enclosure has a built-in carry handle and an effective, molded in debris screen. This HY-Drive pump cycles 1,600 gallons per hour, can be positioned vertically or horizontally, and is equally at home underwater as a submersible pump or as an inline, external pumping source. It offers whisper quiet operation, is oil free and fish safe, operates continuously, has a clog resistant filter screen, adapts to 1.5 inch threaded fittings, and includes an extra long, 20 foot power cord.
