    Hello and welcome.
    Whatever filtration you decide to go for, make sure its something easy to clean.
    You should be cleaning your filters twice a week in summer and you dont want it to become a 2hr chore
    My filter on my 5000 gallon pond takes about 10 minutes to clean
    5000 Gallon Fibreglassed Pond With 54" x 27" Infinity Window
    BD300 Drum Filter
    Artesian 0.5hp - Aquadyne 4.4c Beadfilter - PS4 Protein Shower
    Badu Eco Touch - EP20 UV Sterilizer - ASHP - Venturi
    Hi Blo 60 - Medo 45 - Spindrifter Bottom Drain
    Wide Mouthed Skimmer

    That's a fair price and distance is not too bad but at the time being I'm putting my money to the side for a good size pond which I'll be looking to build it in around may or so
