    your currently replacing your entire pond volume once a week!
    60lph x 24hrs x 7days = 10,080 litres

    as for whats best, depends on stocking level nitrates ect...
    rule of thumb is around 10 - 20% a week
    but due to the small volume in a temporary pond i'm doing around 40% a week to keep nitrates down...

    but i'd start at 10lph and see how you get on..
    what dechlorinator do you have, and are you on a meter...?
