Aquagarden Barracuda pumps provide solids handling capacity up to 7mm along with an eco-friendly low wattage power draw. They are ideal dirty water filtration pumps for applications such as aquaponics and waterfalls.

Aquagarden Barracuda pumps are able to operate out of pond when installed in-line and below the water level, see figure 2 for more information.

Aquagarden Barracuda Installation Options

Figure 1 Above: Installation when submersed under water
  1. The pump must be completely immersed under water. The minimum depth of water is 15cm to prevent the possibility of drawing air into the system.
  2. When submersed in a pond and in order to prevent the filter from being clogged, the pump must be installed on a solid, flat surface so as not to suck up sand and silt.
Figure 2 Above: Installation when used outside water
  1. The pump can be installed outside the pond so long as it is located in a position that is below the surface level of the pond water. It should be placed on a solid, flat surface and fixed with screws.
  2. To connect the pump, remove the filter cover and then connect the water inlet and outlet pipes. These pipes must be well sealed and the inlet pipe primed with water before operation.
  3. All piping must be of an appropriate size for use with the pump to prevent clogging. Please consult your Aqua Gardening for advice on the correct size and type of pipe.
