I live in Upstate NY, where the Winter weather isn't exactly friendly. I just got a brand new Hayward Max Flo 1 HP pump this season, and am wondering what's best for its longevity. I currently have it hard-wired, and was wondering if it is smart to convert it to a three-prong plug and bring it inside in the Winter.
What are the pros/cons of leaving it outside/bringing it inside? What do you guys do?
