new RO skimmer pump

So im getting back into the game and i need to find a replacement to the reef Octopus nw-150. I took it aart after seeing no circulation and my wheel is broke in a few places, the little nub is missing to hold the prop on, and the air intake nozzel(best i could describe) is broken. Im sure its been more than a year since I've gotten it but i cant remember the site i got it from. Though i do remember getting it on sale for around 150.

Mainly im just looking for a similar replacement that would hook up directly to the skimmer without breaking the bank.

sry for dbl post.

It seems the OTP-2000 was the original pump for the skimmer. If i order a replacement pump will it come with the necessary air intake port for the skimmer?
