    Pumping Station Cover

    Hey everybody! Well, my wife and I just had a pool installed (I've only seen pictures of it because I'm away on business) and we also have a 2 y.o. son who likes to climb on EVERYTHING! So naturally, he likes everything around and including our pumping station. Have any of you built anything around yours? Ours is next to the house, so we can't put in a pool house or anything. If you have, would you mind posting some pics to give me some ideas? Thanks!

    Mine is right against the house too and I built a lean-to type building with metal siding that slides over the equipment and can be removed for maintenance. You could build a wooden frame and vinyl side it if that would work better for you.

    Dave,

    Do you have any photos of your cover. I need something to protect my new equipment from nature.

    I don't think so, but it's basically just a 3 sided building a little larger that the equipment space.

    I see. I have a Polaris booster pump, about 3 years old, that may be toast due to rain/snow and maybe some dirt that got in there from the rains. Also noticed its under the gutter (my gutters need a lot of cleaning, or they overflow). Guy at the motor repair place (they do a lot of industrial repairs) said I definitely want to get the motor covered.

    I'll try to get a pic of it if it ever quits raining long enough. It's supposed to rain until next Thursday!

    Bump this in a few days if I haven't posted back.
