    Can an AG pump get rained on?

    Do I need to cover the pump with something, build a roof for it, or is it OK to be exposed to the weather? It is a waterways AG pool pump with cartridge filter. They are on a base together. I have a small deck that they can go under (barely), but it would be an easier install to place them a little outside the deck area.

    Let it rain on the pump it's sealed up pretty good.

    Re: Can an AG pump get rained on?

    OK, just to make sure... Instructions say "Do not install pump where there is excess moisture". Ummm, does that mean where there will be flooding when it rains? That is what I got out of it with the way they've written the instructions.

    It is up on a base that is high off the ground. It will not flood that way. I was worried about the actual raindrops when raining.

    Anyway, it's raining here again. It's been seemingly non-stop rain forever. Argg!

    Thank you, No P in my ool. Didn't mean to doubt your opinion. I was sidetracked by the above instructions.
