 Filter help

I have had my alligator for about a year now, and just moved him into a room which is about 8x10. I know this is still a fairly small room but it is temporary, he is about 2-2.5 ft. He has a large koi fish pond and dry land. I use to have a canister filter on the pond but he knocked the suck hose out and it ran dry and burned up. Does anyone have any recommendations on good filtration systems or way to keep the gator from breaking them? Any input would be appreciated.

I would use a swimming pool filter, cut and fit " in and out tubes in the side wall of the koi fish pond ". You will probably have to put a screen on the out tube, just to prevent toes, tail, or his food from being pulled in to the tube. He won’t be able to pull this apart on you.
