I have assembled a emergency long term power outage / fire extinguishing sub pump for your pond or stream to be used with your generator.

I placed a used Zoeller M-53 1/3 horse power automatic float sump pump in a 5 gallon bucket with holes in it or two milk creates and attached 4 re bar legs. The pump comes with a 24 foot flexible discharged hose and a garden hose connector that can be put on the pump for putting out a fire.

The re bar legs on the bucket pump will sink into the mud and hold it in place.

The reason for the bucket and milk crate is to keep the pump from clogging up with mud or rocks

The height on the re bar legs on the milk crate pump can be be adjusted.

On the milk crate steam pump I suggest taking you post hole digging tool to the middle of the steam and digging a one foot deep hole to set the crate into the flow of water. This will keep the pump submerges and cool.

I spoke with the salesmen at the electrical supply house and an licensed electrician about safest ways to protect the wires in a underwater junction box. They recommend a water proof junction box with the pump cord and the 50 foot extension cord connection that is encased in a 2 part epoxy compound. I purchased a new ground fault protector and test run the pump for one hours.
