JTP-12000 High Efficiency Heavy Duty Pond, Aquarium System Water PumpAAP, SunSun JTP-12000 High Output/Efficiency Pond Pump- $169.99

Unfortunately sales of this pump have been very slow in the last couple years due to the demise of the professional aquarium/pond industry at the hands of Amazon, etc.
The cost of product in number of units we need to have built to the professional specifications we require is cost prohibitive as it would require a 3-4 years supply at current demand levels (if we get enough requests for this pump, we will reconsider)

As with ANY submersible magnetic drive pump, your should always protect the pump intake with more than just the supplied screens with rock beds or similar as per our Pond Care Article.
The reason being is that when one gets into a magnetic drive pump with the amount of wattage and size magnet these and other pumps use, all it takes is some debris to get into the impeller well and the power of thus type of pump will simply shred itself in an attempt to run.
Just because a discounter such as Chewy or Amazon does not state this is not beause their pumps are better (actually they have less inner magnetic impeller protection), they simply do not have the expertise we at AAP have with decades of hands on experience. As well, these discounters sell more by not telling you the consumer this!!

The pictures below show a few examples what we recommend to protect your pump:
