The Laguna I got does 2400 gph flat out. 74 watts when running on the koi
pond, ~ 5-6' of head. 1660-1700gph at that head rate. On the lily pond
there is only 1.5 feet of head so it is really pumping up there, turning
that pond over once every 30 minutes or less. Skimmer has never worked so
One wants to buy direct from Webb's Water Gardeners, if interested, it was
only $125 w/free shipping and came with free koi treats. Took about 7 days
to get it east coast to west. I wasn't in dire need, so I couldn't be
happier, why I ended up buying 2. The working Becket will now be the backup
pump assuming it will even run if out of commission for hopefully many
years. ~ jan
