I'm not sure if this is the place for this, but I don't have one of those pool cover pump covers, so I thought I'd see if anyone had any good ideas. I have a sump pump that's a bottom intake (I use this for my hot tub, and it moves a lot of water.
I don't want to suck up the pool cover or all of the leaves, but it's a dirty water setup, so I don't have to be too anal about it.
I thought about just putting some holes in a bucket, dropping the pump into it, then into the water.
Anyone have any ideas?
