Oase Aquamax Dry

The Oase Aquamax 8000 and 14000 are excellent pumps for use with swimming ponds. These 2 pumps need to have flooded suction (be installed outside the pond, below water level usually in a box or pump chamber). They are also ideal when you don't want a pump or cables to be seen in the pond.

  • High performance OASE motor
  • Perfect for swimming ponds as they are installed externally and eliminate the risk of electric shock for swimmers in case of a fault
  • Great for formal ponds as there are no cables or pumps installed inside the pond
  • Pumps coarse debris up to 8mm in size.
  • Ball joint with infinite pivot range facilitates hose connection
  • Including special hose adapter with threaded collar for connecting hose sizes 1 " , 1 1/4 " and 1 1/2"
  • 3+2 year guarantee
  • Very efficient
  • Can be installed with Oase Aquamax Eco Satellite Cage in pond to protect from leaves
  • 10m cable on all models makes it plug and play, no electricion required. Hint: do not cut the plug to install, it will almost certainly void your warranty - as with most pond pumps

**Head / shut off - The higher the water is pumped, the less the flow until the maximum pumping height is reached. It is critical that this is understood, this height is where the water stops flowing.

Aquamax dry is an ideal pump for ponds, streams or waterfalls when used with or without gravity or pressure filters.

The specially designed impeller, allows debris and solids up to 8mm to pass through en route to the filter system. With a life expectancy about 10 times longer than other pumps, and up to 75% savings on running costs, there is no doubt that the Aquamax is a superb range of pumps.
