    Ok, This guy wants a giant waterfall that produces 750 GPM!! Yeah thats what i thought to. I have done waterfalls that have up to 250 GPM and i thought that was alot.I mean that is alot of water per minute i know but thats what they want. I guess he saw this waterfall at a resturant and asked the owner how much water per minute that was a he said 750 GPM. Does anyone know where i could get a pump to pump that kind of water?
    -Thanks in advance:waving:

    45K GPH is enough water to float an ark. Perhaps you should inquire which restaurant it is and see for yourself. I'm thinking that he got some numbers mixed up or the owner of the restaurant doesn't really know either.

    I'm sure someone makes a pump (think water park rides), but I wouldn't want to pay that electric bill. YIKES!

    You could go with a couple of 20,000 gph Little Giant submersibles (20scim) or you could go with one big custom Tsurumi submersible to supply it all at one time. Another option is to go with one or two centrifugal pumps to get the required flow. If you need any help sourcing the right pump for your application let me know (303-435-6564 or darronbryant@yahoo.com).
