Looking for some ingenious solutions. The metal plate at the bottom of the pump which secures the pump to the base has rusted out after many years of use. I would hate to buy a new one since I can't imagine having the pool any longer than 2 more seasons and our seasons are short! Any suggestions appreciated. I thought I had posted this previously so excuse the repeat.
