This submersible pump comes equipped with the filter kit and one water ball fountain head.

The maximum power it offers is 190 GPH whereas the consumption is 15 watts. This is a smart pump which works on less power.The 10 feet power cord that comes along with the package makes it a good accessory and enables the pump to work smoothly.The filter of the pump is designed to work for the mechanical and biological filtration.

It does not emit much sound when it is kept submerged, so not disturbing the aqua life.

The water bell shaped fountain head enlivens the pond. There are ways in which you can modify the water pattern, which can be done by rotating the fountain head in different ways.

  • 15 watts power input
  • 190 GPH pump with ample force
  • Mechanical and biological filtration
  • Umbrella pattern water fountain


  • Not for deep ponds
  • Need cleaning often

Most of the users are happy with its output. The crystal clear water and less power usage give it the fame of being a popular pond pump. Whoever was really bothered about the pond water being murky and after using anti algae stuff no changes were seen, have found the right equipment.

The Pondmaster PMK190 pump makes the water clean and keeps it like that for days. The beautiful clarity of water body makes the creatures like frogs, fish and the user equally happy. The little fountain head can create the ball of water when it is pulled, but as it is not mentioned in the guide manual, most users miss this point. They use this fountain as a regular one, missing on the fun of turning the water ball on. So if you buy it, do drag the top part of the fountain head and see the magic. The nice umbrella effect will surely make your garden more alluring and beautiful. As it works almost soundlessly, the calmness of atmosphere is not disturbed anyway.
