Based on your stated measurements for this project, your total head should be inconsequential.

The property is everything you see. There is a road in the back. We go to it. Its not as much of a hill as it looks. There is a berm surrounding the patio though and as the area is torn up I can shape whatever I need.

I want to go external so if there are any issues with the pump I can access it easily. It is my finding that pumps do not last more than a few years around here. Perhaps my clients by cheap pumps. All the same I can also make sure it is disconnected before winter.

Does anything look out of place or out of date. I don't want to install something that was obsolete 5 years ago. Otherwise I am open to any product suggestions or installation techniques.

Thanks
Shovelracer,
Did you get the answers you were hoping for..went on a tangent about subs vs. external. Just looking at the one picture provided, and knowing that there's a road behind. I would be inclined to wrap a stream around the patio with several drops from left to right. This will aid in street noise reduction and envelop the users in the sweet sound of water. Hope this helps.
