When do you need a hydroponic water pump?
For some systems like traditional DWC, Wicking, you do not need a
water pump. But for Aquaponics, and some other hydroponic systems
like RDWC, Bubbleponics (two variations of the DWC), Ebb &
Flow, Aeroponics, etc., a water pump is a must.
It plays a critical job for the system by moving water and
providing nutes for your plants/fish.
You must distinguish between a water pump and an air pump. The role
of the water pump is to pump water while the air pump aerates the
In other words, a water pump moves water and nutrients while an air
pump infuses oxygen into the water system.
When you cannot get plant roots to come into contact with the water
like the classic Deep Water Culture, you have to use a pump to flow
water to your plants. Without water, your plants are bound to die
in several hours.
How efficient is the water pump?
Not all water pumps are the same. Some will be more powerful and
efficient than the others. So you should look at how many GPH the
water pump can move at different head heights.
If one pump gives a more GPH at the same head height than the
others, this is a more efficient pump. But as you may have guessed,
a more efficient water pump tends to be more expensive, but it will
be more durable.
