Aegokocarat ,

Its harder than I thought-the seal was attached by 2 spring clamps wich were hard enough to remove but today I just finished doing the pump. It stank to high heavan,full of gunge and objects a nail(no lucky pound lol)and other stuff.

Good news & bad news...

Firstly there is no good news but the bad is is that the inlet holes are jammed with gunge? and the pump lastnight dripped and now I own lake flood in my shed!
