They do need another pump Sam and are designed to be fed by a pump then return (although I can't see why you couldn't pull water through them with a pump plumbed after the filter rather than before and make them work like an external). If you did I'd keep with the pond kit and go for a small Oase Aquamax pump which can run emersed aswell as submerged and are very energy efficient. I have one running my quaratine pond filter and it does a great job on 600 gallons!!!

They do rely on sponge cartridges though. Why not really embrace pond technology and go with a bubblebead or K1 type filter that cleans itself? ;)
