Best Pond filter system – All in One Lifegard Pump with UV Algae control

algae control filter

This is the best Pond pump we have ever used and our fish are healthy and thriving.  This All in One Pond Filter system is a compact filter for water gardens and ponds with Koi and fish.  It is extremely easy to install and easy to clean.  See the photos I posted from cleaning the pump today.

With the Lifegard All in One pond filter you have a choice of 4 different fountain spray patterns for your pond. To help control algae this efficient pump includes an ultraviolet sterilizer that has a separate plug so you can operate it only when you need to.

The pond filter unit will float.  I need to put a few heavy rocks on top to hold the pond pump in place.  After years of using various pumps for our small Arizona pond, this is by far the absolute best pump system and I highly recommend it.  Even more so if you have fish and Koi in your pond.

  1. My brother suggested I may like this web site. He was once entirely right. This publish actually made my day. You can not imagine just how a lot time I had spent for this information! Thanks!


    1. Thanks for the comment and this filter is still amazing. Today we had a heavy storm so I plan on taking it apart for a good cleaning in the next few days. My cleanings are lasting 3-4 months.


  2. do you ever have problems with critters taking your fish?

    we have a small pond with an algae sterilizer as a separate unit. Our filter is like yours with a sponge.. how often do you clean the sponge? our pond was here when we moved in last year.. I have floating pond plants, but think that it is too shallow to keep fish in, not much more than a foot deep.


    1. no problems with critters stealing the fish yet; I have large bricks with potted plants sitting in all four corners so the fish can hide well…a foot deep should be fine for 2-3 goldfish if you wanted…give them lilypads or other items to hide in or around, they play tag and are so fun to watch


      1. good to hear that a foot is OK for a few goldfish.. I have lots of floating plants, hyacinth,water lettuce,fern,small lilies,and duck weed 🙂 lots of roots for them to hide in.. we did find last year even though there were no fish, at one point some raccoons came in the night and took out most of the pond plants and left them lying around the pond. they would be the biggest threat.
