Hello, I have almost finished digging my 2500 gallon pond. I have bought an Oasis Clear Pond 80 filter -

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/OASIS-CLEAR-P...den_PondsWaterFeatures_UK&hash=item3366882e8b.

But I am not quite sure which pump to go for. It is suggested that you get an Aquashift 12000, but I would like the 15000 model as the filter box will be approx 2 metres above the level of the water, and at that height the 15000 pump will do roughly 10,600 litres an hour, whereas the 12,000 model will only to 7000 litres at that height.

The maximum capability of the filter is 11,250 litres.

Do you think this will be ok?

Thoughts appreciated, Shaun

I would go the larger pump, worse case you may have to add a valve and bleed back a little directly to the pond, sounds like it's going to be right at the max but workable.
