Pump installation choices - In pond or outside pond

Pond pump mounted in pond Pump mounted outside of pond
Typical pump installation....  A submersible pump is positioned in the pond with water pumped through the pond wall and up to the spillway.
Note: This is the best way to set up your pump from the stand point of the pumps performance, as any pump noise (mostly associated with less expensive pumps) is muffled, the pump is kept cooler and therefore will have a longer life, in most cases a pre filter can be attached to the pump.
Optional pump installation ...  A pump suitable for dry mounting is positioned behind the pond and the water is then pumped up to the spillway.
Note: This arrangement allows the pump to be hidden, however the benefits mentioned in the in-pond option such as noise, cooling are lost.

Neat and tidy

A method of getting both the electrical cable (with plug intact), and the hose out of the pond.
  At the same time the pump can be removed for servicing without the plug being cut off or having the cord and hose over the ponds edge.
