My pump and filter are exposed to the elements, mounted on a concrete pad about 10 feet from my pool. They have no shelter, but I was considering building one.
I wasn't going to do it for asthetic reasons, simply to cover up the pump and electrical from rain. Is this something you would recommend? I'm looking at about $200 in lumber to do it the way I had planned, but the more I think about it the more I think it's a waste of money. After all, these pumps and filters are made to be outside, right? Is there any reason why I wouldn't want to leave it uncovered?
