    The pump for the duck pond has finally croaked. It has done well, so I might pull it and see what it was and order another of that (been 5 years), but wanted to see what others have used and had good luck with.

    Just needs to pump to the skippy filter.
    Pond is about 1000 gallons and the skippy filter (~70 gallons) spills back into the pond.

    Suggestions?

    I ended up buying the same one. But they don't make the size we have anymore, so we went up a size.
    Laguna maxflow 960

    was cheaper through amazon (through Laguna) and cheaper still to get the little fountain attachment thing that we just won't use

    Figured the last one held up 5 years, may as well get the same and they are pretty energy efficient considering we run it 24/7
