Sunterra 120016 Large Fountain Pump, 200 GPH, Black

The Sunterra is a clean waer fountian pump that will provide you with a decent amount of water flow.  Although this is advertised as a large fountain pump, it is not exactly that large, but allow for various size fountains. 

Features of this particular pump:

  • Pumps 200 gallons of water per hour with a maximum lift of 4.9 feet
  • Operate efficiently for extended periods of time with no regular maintenance
  • Has a 16 foot power cord

This particular pump is magnetic driven and will require very little if any maintenance.  The electrically charged magnet inside of the device makes the impeller spin and circulate the water through the pump.   The magnetic drive pumps are extremely safe to operate having no coolants to deal with and are therefore much more environmentally friendly.  They are also use far less energy to operate which makes them economically viable.


What are others saying about this particular water fountain model?

“I was looking for a small pump to push ice water from a cooler through a copper cooling coil. There wasn’t a whole lot of force behind it, but this one did the job well. It also came with a few nozzle options to connect the tubing.”

I don’t know if I would call this a “large fountain pump”. I bought it for our fountain which is a medium fountain with a 4 foot lift height. The pump arrived and it looked kind of small, I was skeptical. It does work, and certainly for $23 it’s worth it. Even if it only lasts a couple of years its worth it. I had a much larger pump, that this Sunterra pump replaced, which moved more water than this little one and it failed after 2.5 years (warranty 1 year). It was three times the price. The flow is a little weak for a 4 foot lift height, but it is adequate, and if it keeps working the way it does now, I would be happy with it.”
