Perfect pumps for pond waterfalls, streams and more! The Tetra Debris-Handling Pump provides clog-free performance for power filters and waterfalls. This energy efficient pump is engineered for continuous operation and can handle debris up to ¼ inch in size—allowing you to clean your pond, not your pump!

How It Works
Tetra Debris-Handling Pumps are engineered to circulate large volumes of pond water without clogging. This allows the pump to operate for long periods of time without any maintenance. Water, dirt, and debris are drawn through the quarter inch holes in the large pre-filter cage that surrounds the pump. The pre-filter cage prevents leaves, sticks, and other large debris from entering the pump. It also protects the fish from the pump’s impeller. The open-face impeller allows debris up to 1/4 in. in diameter to pass through the pump without clogging. The pond water with dirt and debris are pumped to an external filter for removal or directly to a waterfall or stream.

Flow Performance
Determine how high you waterfall will be from the pond surface. The higher the top of the waterfall is from the pond surfaces, the less flow will result. Take a look at the charts below for the approximate waterfall effect the Debris-Handling Pumps will create at various pumping heights.
  • Rugged Debris Handling Pump impeller can pass 1/4 in. debris without clogging

  • Outlet size fits tubing 1-1/2 inches or 1-1/4 inches in internal diameter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far so good I have a leaf problem in my pond, so I replaced my old pump with this one, and so far it has really helped. No more need to pull the pump and clean the debris every few days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flow rate This is my second debris handling pump and I continue to be satisfied with construction and dependability of these care free pumps. My fish love the flow rate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Workhorse This is my second pump. The first one is 7 years old and still going strong. So easy to use, just hook it up and plug it in. No prefilters to mess with. It's a messy pond with turtles and I've never had it clog up. They cost a little more than some pumps but you'll save even more by not having to buy a new one every couple of years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the DHP This is the 2nd of this type / brand of pump we've owned. The first one lasted 8+ years and kept the pond very happy. We have a 900+ gallon pond with large goldfish that we "rescue" from the bait store. :-)
