    Anyone familiar with the D Ponds DPS series DPS8500 PUMP

    seems like a good deal for a 1/2 horsepower pump with three years warranty

    I am not familiar with it. The website says it uses little power, but I did not see any power consumption info. This is important to figure out. What seems favorably priced for your use may not turn out to be the best buy when looking at power consumption over the life of the product.

    437 watts
    3.8 amps
    1/2 HP
    115/230 volts

    I'll pay a bit more in electricity to not have to replace after a year or two

    At maximum rate of 11¢ kwh in my area, I'll pay $34.58 a month for this pump.

    I have been very pleased with the Sequence pumps I installed in 2005 when my current pond was built. They've been running 24/7 (except for power outages) for over 8 years. The reliability has really impressed me. I have thought about switching them out for the somewhat more energy efficient versions now available, but the differential is not all that much, so I've put it off.
