    Poor Man's UV Protection for Pump Basket Cover

    After getting a shiny new cover, I didn't want it ending up yellow and crazed. Looking around, I found some 1/8" tempered Masonite and some old house primer.

    Well, it won't let me upload any pics, but this is a chunk of masonite the width and (almost) full length of the pump with a 3" slot for the pressure line.
    Slip it on from the front (so the pipe slides through the slot) and you have a cover which does not block the vents on the motor.
    The paint seals it against weather (In case CA ever again sees rain).

    If you have high winds, a small bag of shot will hold it reasonably well.

    Here's a couple of shots:
