The semi-indoor pond in the big house developed a problem. Apparently, the tenant (might have) used the pumps when the pond was dry. So one of the pumps burnt out. I called in a pond expert and he quoted me $500 to replace the pump and install. Groan, another big chunk of cash.$500????!!! Its hardly been used for two years!!
I need that like I need a kick in my head.I asked him whether the pump could be fixed- but he says that submersible pumps once the mechanism inside has burnt out - can't be fixed. I think the brand is a Grund-fos? Probably German. There was a lot of gunk in the water and I couldn't make it out. Got to take a better look at it tomorrow when I go there. It looks like this type.
