Step 1: Place Pump

Place your pump into a mesh pond plant basket that is slightly larger than the pump.

Step 2: Weight

Weight and secure your pump with a couple of rocks. (You may need to prop it up slightly so the extender clears the top.)

Step 3: Cover

Cover the top with aluminum or fiberglass window screen. If you use the screen that is black in color, it’s less visible under the water.

Step 4: Cut Opening

Cut a small opening in the center for the extenders to fit through.

Step 5: Secure

Secure your screen to the rim of the basket with a few pieces of wire.

Step 6: Place and Plug In

Place it back in your pond and plug it in. Keeps your pump clean and prevents it from burning out due to a build-up of clogged debris.
