Decided to go cover-less this winter after the snows of the last few years demolished my aging cover. The plan was to circulate the water when needed and keep it relatively clean through the winter. When the pump gave out, that plan ended and I put off replacing the pump until now. As as result, I have a lovely green swamp. Pump parts are here and I'll be putting that back together in the next few days (I hope). I'll post up pictures as I go. I'm gonna need a pallet of bleach.
