the Pump for the Winter
you have a Magnet-Drive Pump or not, it is suggested that in order to prolong
the useful life of the pump, it be stored over the winter in a container of
water in an area that will not freeze. However, if your pond exceeds about 30
inches or more in depth, you may probably be able to leave your pump in the
pond throughout the winter months without any damage occurring.
Leaving the pump in water on a continuous basis will ensure that any
gaskets, seals and electrical connections will not dry when the pump is not in use.
