I'm looking to add a DIY fountain when I get my pond completed and am trying to determine whether or not I need to have the pump in the middle or if can be closer to the bank and piped to the middle where the spray is. I'm only looking to have 7-8' of water depth, so may not have to worry about pump's lift height as much but am a little concerned with flow loss inside the piping. However, I've never done it and leaning on you all for experience and suggestions. Main driver for not placing pump in the middle is to minimize need for waterproof electrical connections.

To minimize flow restriction, use the biggest pipe that you can - there are engineering calculations on the internet to allow you to plug in numbers to see how the size of the pipe affects flow.

Lift height is only applicable once the pipe is out of the water.

Thanks for that. I wouldn't have guessed that it was only out of water piping.
