    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

    pressure filters don't offer anywhere near what they claim
    they will clog quickly and the so called self clean/back flush system are rubbish and you will end up stripping it down at least weekly
    which is not straight forward, the bio side of the filter is pathetic for the size of the unit and price they charge.
    (which you are charged for there false claims)
    compare all this to a simple box filter and its a no brainer
    a box is easy to clean ,cheep and offers a far superior bio capacity
