Aquascape Pro Pumps are the popular choice of pond builders and contractors. 

Aquascape horizontal pond pumps, from the AquascapePRO line, are energy efficient and low maintenance.

Aquascape has engineered the essence of the pond ecosystem. The pump circulates the water from the skimmer putting it through the filter mats and sending it over to the bottom of BIOFALLS where it passes up through another set of filter mats and media.

20006 - SFA 10000  (10,000 gph)

Quality Control

Aquascape stopped shipping the Aquascape Pro pumps in the summer of 2008 to retool the seals on the pumps that had caused some of the pumps to fail prematurely. Since the new seals have been installed and the pumps released in the fall of 2008, virtually no problems have been reported with seal failures and they are again considered one of the elite pond pumps in the world. 

Quiet and efficient, these pumps have stainless steel construction, along with rubber feet to reduce vibration. With high head heights and high flow rates, the AquascapePRO line (also known as SFA), excels in the water garden. A vortex impeller for solid handling proves useful in pond applications

Question:I have a 2-3 year old SFA10000. What kind of oil does it need? 

Aquascape Tech Answer: This pump takes 12oz of a Mobil DTE Light non-additive non-detergent turbine oil. However, if it has not lost any then you shouldn't need to add or change it (that is one school of thought). Or the other thought is; changing the oil is a good maintenance practice if done by a shop that can pump in the oil and remove the air. If he is going to change it, this method is ideal because it is not like changing the oil in your car.  

The  Aquascape Pro Pumps takes 5 oz of the Mobile DTE Light Oil. The port is located on the side of the pump under the discharge. It is a hex-head screw that will be removed to add the oil.

Note: You will need to order the AquaSurge Conversion Kit #29705 when converting Your Aquascape Pro (SFA) Pump 1500, 3000 or 4500 to AquaSurge
Use the AquaSurge Conversion Kit (Part#29705) to connect the 1.5" Female Threaded Outlet to either 2" or 1 1/2" Check Valve Assemblies. TheKit contains the parts necessary to convert any AquaScape Pro pump to the AquaSurge Pump using your existing Check Valve Assembly and Aquascape Skimmer.
The kit includes two parts - one you will use and the other you will not need: 1 1/2" Male Thread x 2" Slip adapter for Classic Series Skimmers and Check Valves. Cut through the2"  pipe and cut off the 2" Male adapter between the Check Valve and the pump. Screw the 1.5" x 1.5" Female Adapter that comes with the pump on to the 1.5" Male Thread Outlet on the pump. Glue the 2" Slip x 1.5" Male Thread (#99144) that comes in the Conversion Kit (#29705) on to the end of the pipe you just sawed off and screw the 1.5" Male Thread onto the 1.5" Female thread.

- OR - 2" Aquascape Check Valve Adapter for Signature Series Skimmers and Check Valves. Remove the Flanged part below the Check Valve with the 2" male Thread that screws into the pump and discard. Use part #29475 which comes in the Conversion Kit #29705. Insert the Flanged end into the bottom of the Check Valve Assembly and screw the other end - 1.5" Female onto the 1.5" Male stem of the pump.

Aquascape pro 300o pump
This is my second pump in 6 years. The second pump lasted 2 years and 1 month. It broke one month out of warranty. I called the company but was told too bad. At almost $500 a piece you would think they would last a little longer.

Aquascape Pro Pumps
I've owned two over the last four years. Both failed and were not repairable. Water was the culprit in both failures, but aren't they supposed to be submersible? I cannot afford $400-500 every other year to push water through a filter to a waterfall. I'm not sure what is "Pro" about these pumps.

I have been very happy with my pump. It was installed the summer of 2005 and has run continuously since with one intentional shutdown a year for pond cleaning. Now, unfortunately it is kicking off theGFI.

My aquascape pump that I installed over seven years ago just went out. Performance was excellent and even had two jams (frogs). Will be purchasing a replacement.
