Must I remove pumps this winter?
I have two pumps in a skimmer box, and I have always removed them for the winter in the past. Is there a problem if I leave them in? They are pretty jammed in the skimmer box, it is very difficult to maneuver to disconnect them, and impossible for me to re-connect them in the spring. I always have to pay someone to reconnect my pumps.
I will have the pumps turned off and a cattle-trough heater in the pond.
Thanks for your help!
