For every inch of width DIY waterfall pond, you must have at least 100 to 150 GPH of water supplied by your pump. Example waterfall: if you want to bowl at the top of your waterfall to have 10-inch wide areas where the water rolled over and down the waterfall, you will need a pump that can provide 1000gph.

The maximum class for your pump, said 1000gph, referring to the pump with zero head pressure. Head pressure refers to the weight of the water pump lift and push. If the pump must lift the water far it will generate less GPH. Simple, the pump will have a rating that refers to the amount of vertical ascent of water will need to make. It will supply the graphics in the pump specification stating zero head pressure GPH, but also GPH to expect with the vertical lift one foot, or two feet of vertical lift, or five feet of vertical lift and so on.
