Max-Flo pumps are designed to provide continuous and reliable water circulation. They are ideally suited for a variety of pond applications, such as providing water flow to filtration systems and creating spectacular waterfalls. Made in Italy the pumps are powered by a magnetic-driven motor that's unrivaled in the market for generating large amounts of water flow at extremely low energy costs. This is great news for people who are wary of costly electricity bills. In fact, switching to a Laguna pump will often pay for itself in one season.
