Pond Fountains are a great addition to the pond, for site and sound. The difference between an aerating fountain and display fountain is how the move the water. The aerating fountains like our 1/2 hp models use an electric motor with a propeller mounted on the shaft of the motor. The spinning propeller is what moves the water into the air. This WP4 Fountain is more like a pump drawing water in from the bottom and pushing it out the top of the the motor giving the display of water. Yes you do get aeration from the WP4 at 4,000GPM but the surface aerating fountains move close to two times the amount water.

You could also look at it like a sound difference too. With the more water you move the more sound of water splashing back into the pond crating more sound. The WP4 display fountain is quieter but offers a great sound too.

This video shows the previous fountain setup but very similar to the new fountain above.
