Welcome
The diy section has a lot of good ideas for building your own filter, they work well and can be inexpensive to build
Figure out the volume of your pond, liters, gallons. You want to buy a pump that will turn over your pond every hour to hour and 1/2. So you would need that many gallons per hours or liters per hour.
