rule of thumb is between your pump should push 1 to 2 times an hour your total gph...The smaller the quantity the more gph is recomended

You want a pump that circulates your pond volume 1.5-2 times per hour. So 1800-2400gph pump will suffice.

Thanks everyone for your help. We got a 1800gph pump, It will go in the bucket with the balls in it and bags of lava rocks around the bucket. We will throw away the laundry basket that is 20 years old with the old pump too. It is supposed to keep the pond clean. We have silt in the pond you can't even see the fish. Also bought some sludge killer. While I was there I got some gorgeous Shubunkins. Hope they can outrun the Heron.
