Hi there people! I'm hoping you will be able to give me a quick and easy reply about this little problem...

As the title suggests, which of the following pump and filter sets is best? I have narrowed my selection down to the following:

Oase Biopress 4000 set
http://www.swelluk.c...ts-179627.html#

Hozelock Ecoclear 2200 Pond Pump And Filter System
http://www.ebay.co.u...9#ht_1140wt_905

Both are adequate for my pond size (small!) and both are a set of filter and pump, HOWEVER, they include the following:

Oase Set
Integrated UVC
UVC Power: 7 watt
5m of hose and 2 hoseclips
Includes all hose connections for fast installation
oase 1500 pump
Price: £139.99

Hozelock Set
Integrated UVC
UVC Power: 5 watt
Titan 2000 Pump
Price: £105.00

Other than the obvious price difference, what's included i.e. hoses etc (is oase better than titan??) I have no idea which is best overall. I don't mind paying the bit extra to get a better system.

I would really appreciate your views or even just a vote for either one... Cheers!

Marcus

I had a titan pump and it worked fine for years , it died a few months ago
I would look for a pump with low watt usage
stroppy suggested Laguna , that would be my choice to

I have only had evolution series, and the lim dragon pumps, both of them have been great, low power use.
Can't speak about the two you have listed.
