Changing waterfall pump?

Hey guys,

I hope this is the right place to post about this. In late September, my husband and I bought a house with a small waterfall in the back yard. Within a month, the waterfall pump went out. We poked around and saw that it was a Beckett W1800 pump. After looking this item up online, I saw it had poor reviews---for dying quickly. We had a service man come out, but he recommended waiting for the leaves to fall before replacing the pump, which they have now.

We don't know much about ponds and waterfalls--but would like to replace the pump ourselves. Is it a big deal to change the pump out? What if we went with another brand(one with better reviews)--would it still be hooked up the same? Any insight would be great. Thanks!

Can you post any photos or discribe in detail how the current pump is set up and connected? There are many varites of pump instalation.
