    Your pump needs to have good circulation to help keep it cool. I would not close it up in a storage unit. Now you can build something using lattice. It will be pretty and allow air in and out.

    Built my own out of treated wood and trex decking boards for the top. The top is lined with truck bed liner on the inside to keep everything dry. The box sits on pavers on all four corners to keep it from soaking up water and the pump/filter also sit on pavers with level sand under them to keep everything uniform and dry. The side boards all have a 1/4 inch gap to let air circulate.20170507_173949.jpg20170507_174014.jpg
