I am looking for advice on a pump purchase for my mini pond / stream, that is about 100 gallons.

My ideal:
  • around 1000 gph
  • external (have a young son who won't stay out of the pond!)
  • relatively quiet - although we plan to put it in a box of some kind
  • extra safety features? (e.g. auto shut-off if it gets clogged or overheats?)
  • self-priming
Does such a pump exist? Thank in advance for any advice!

if you can get the pump close to the same level as the pond you won't need self priming.

But if you have a little going into a pond keep in mind pumps can grab a hold on you gins and they may not be able to pull away
