What kind of pond pump?

My grandpa has a 200 gallon pond which I thought was bigger, well his Harbor Freight Pond pump just went out. Does anybody have any suggestions or brands that I should be looking at? It does not need to have any aeration as we have a waterfall for the water.

The Harbor Freight says 3200gph, I just bought this Beckett one from Amazon which is a 1800gph at a 1' head. My filter is sitting about 9' away so I am guessing it brings the gph to around 1100.

I just got Laguna PT336 Powerjet 2400 pump for the pond I am building. We will see how to works out.

The Beckett works great. Combined with the new canister filter the pond cleared up within a couple of hours. Actually impressed with the Jebao Canister filter.
