Hi - the plug question does pop up from time to time. Here's my previously posted answer to that question:
"No electrical pond equipment should be supplied with plugs fitted. Pumps, UVs, Filters etc should be hard-wired into an earth leakage circuit breaker whereas a moulded plug might mislead the consumer into fitting the device onto a standard socket on the ring main, which is potentially very dangerous. If in any doubt, ALWAYS consult a qualified electrician. It's a pity we received a 3 star review for doing the right thing (!) but hopefully this explanation will help others."

“Just as described, this pump runs quietly and is perfect for my customer's wall mounted fountain as a replacement for a pump originally supplied with the fountain and which proved to be ineffective. I have more faith in this pump.”
