Our pump in the back of our house is totally disgusting. It’s collecting all sorts of gross stuff and I think it’s hurting our local wildlife. That’s why we’re thinking about getting a submersible pond pump to keep things clean beneath the surface. Least we could do to help out the kids and the animals around here. That and we would like to enjoy it one day. You know, during the summer. Have a picnic and sit by the pond reading books. My children should be able to go in it, for goodness sake.
