Love my Pondmaster
Last fall, when I would normally be closing up the pond the "right way", I was ill. All I could manage was to put the old windows over the pond and turn off the Pondmaster pump. Just left it in the pond. No bubbler this time. Just a couple of prayers for the fish.
This past weekend, after the ice thawed, I pulled up the Pondmaster pump, took it apart, cleaned the impeller and the hole into which it fits and it worked!!!!
The fish are still deep down somewhere (can't see the black one anyway, though I did see the comet while the ice was still on the pond) but I now have a dome aerator going and have pulled all the pebbles out of the stream to clean them, which I will do this coming weekend when the rain ends.
That pump just keeps working no matter how abusive I am of it. I love it.
