Welcome!
You now have an outdoor aquarium which you have no control over lighting, heating or how much organic and mineral matter blows into it.
What would you like to have the finished product look like?

Welcome.....! But, huh? Not sure I am following what is going on here! You dug a hole eight to ten feet deep, or eight tenths of a foot deep.....and stuck a Jacuzzi in there.....and now you want advice on a pump/filter? Pictures would REALLY be helpful here!

Does this all have a liner? What are the over all dimensions? Is this a legit post? Like @MitchM said, what do YOU want it to be?

My advice? Sorry if I sound rude, but next time please consider doing your research BEFORE you dig the hole.

That is pretty deep. If it were me, I would re-rent the back hoe, do some terrain reshaping and install a real pond (liner, skimmer etc). Then I would install the Jacuzzi nearby, hop in with a glass of wine and enjoy looking at the new pond. As you can see above, there are some really dedicated (and experienced) pond keepers who want to help you. By the way, welcome to the forum; we are glad to have you as a member.

Yup. Still makes zero sense.

Still do not understand this .So you will do different landscape ideas for each country you have been to and liked .
