Pond Kit Help Pressurized Pump? vs Pondbuilder

I'm am finally getting around to redoing a pond that my dad and I put in years ago using a plastic form.
I'm am currently going between two starter kits the first and the one i'm more familuar with is the Serninicty Watergarden Kit by Pondbuilder for a 8X11 pond heres what it comes with

Serenity Pond Kits come complete with:
Fish-Friendly Rubber Liner
Protective Underliner
Serenity™ Mechanical Skimmer
Serenity™ Biological Waterfall
PondBuilder™ Clear Water Pump
Check Valve Assembly
1.5” PVC Flex Pipe (16’)
Pond Maintenance Kit
Complete Instructions including DVD
Four Color Packaging
Item # Max Pond Size Liner Size Approx. Pond Gallons Pump Flow Rate PVC Flex Pipe
PB1212 8'x11' 12'x15' 1000 1800 gph 1.5"x16'
And i found it for 956.79

The second kit is The Pond Guy® AllClear™ Ecosystem Pond Kits

• AllClear™ G2 Pressurized Filter
• 45 mil EPDM Fish-Safe Pond Liner
• Protective Underlayment
• ClearSpring™ Mini 16" Waterfall Filter
• SolidFlo™ G2 Pump
• Kink-Free Tubing
• Waterfall Foam - 12 oz
• Installation Hardware
• Nature's Defense™ Bacteria - 12 Packets

8'x11' Pond Kit

LINER SIZE 12' x 15'
PUMP SolidFlo™ G2 - 2000
WATERFALL FILTER ClearSpring™ Mini 16"
FILTER AllClear™ G2 2000
PLUMBING 25' x 1-1/4" Kink-Free
Now the second kit is made that company who are local to michigan but I know nothing about the quality. But the whole set up is 789.99 which is a little more in my price range but I am unwilling to pay that type of money when I know nothing about the product or how well it will hold up. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. I want to be able to start tearing out the old pond as soon michigan weather stops flip flopping (hopefully end of march early april)
The pond is roughly going to be 2 1/2 feet deep and roughly 5'x8'. I have three comets of various types currently housed in a tank water lily, water iris cat tails that are going in the trash and a zebra rush (i think).
thanks for any recommendations or suggestions
