Hi Guys. A friend of mine has this Indoor Water Feature (see pics) and its missing the Pump and he does not know where to look for one that might suit it. The Feature stands about 2ft tall, and the Base 8/9ins approx. Would any of you know what, or where he might look for one, he was wondering would a Fish Tank one work. Many Thanks.

That water feature looks like it is a foreign import.

If you look at the pictures there is not a lot of actual room for the pump to sit in. This is typical of foreign water features, the makers often produce a pump as well as the water feature. The pumps are usually very small, so small infact that you can not get a replacement to fit.

In some cases a new small pump such as those that have been linked to, will cost more than what the water feature cost in the first place.

By all means look to see if there is a small pump, but I would suggest measuring the sump first, taking into consideration the top part of the water feature that sits on the sump, then look for a suitable sized pump, but I doubt you will find one that will fit, and the importer of the water feature are only interested in selling you another water feature.

Good luck.

summer, next time you visit your friend, any chance you would take a picture of this pump? (Something next to it to give size perspective would also be nice)
