I'm not sure what size pipe he used but on the same page you found the image this is what Milne posted as the pump he was using in that setup -

The tower in the bottom I have reservoir with a ball valve and a jeebo pump 17 watt it will run 24- 7 feeding neut to the plants


I looked around briefly for a pump that fit the description but without success. You know the depth of the barrel, you know the depth of the water and you know the height you need to push the water to so you can calculate the head height (from the top of the water to the highest point you're going to pump). This page lists the max head height along with the dimensions of the pump - http://www.discount-pumps.biz/fountain-pond-pumps.htm. I'd choose a pump that is capable of pumping a couple feet over the head height you want and with dimensions that will fit the pipe. Looks like there are several that will work.

pump doesn't have to sit in the 100mm. You can have a false floor or a crate etc at the bottom with the 100mm fitted into it. That would form the reservoir. In fact you will probably need it to keep an available volume for the pump to access. Most fountain pumps would be OK - probably 1000-1500 LPH would be your size - the lift is the main issue.

as Scotty notes F&F provided a fairly detailed build summary over those pages.

Use 150 mm DWV pipe this will give you a lot more pump options
