it appears the wattage on the self priming lifeguard pumps are significantly higher than the little giant models. I am trying to decide between your 3/4 4860 lifeguard and your 1/8 4260 little giant. I need a pump with about 16 plus feet of head height. I am running a Tetra pond 2500 UV filter, another UV filter and about 45 total feet of hose with 4 elbows and a splitter to two discharge tubes inside the pond but no waterfall and all hose is within 1 foot of height of the pump.
What size fittings go with each or does each come with hose bib fittings
