LOL! I once had to go replace a pump that the owner hardwired into an electric box under the fountain which was a PITA. Than on one of my first installs I glued all the pvc parts together without any kind of union to pull the pump if needed.

You need a different distributor. A very similar kit from Easy Pro is $650 for 23" and $725. for 35". They also have available a spillway kit with a fire pit surrounded by water.

Doing dumb things, as we all have, and learning from them earns you the right to use the term....EXPERIENCED.

Simple solution, When I have one that I just don't want to pull up, I put a quick disconnect connector Just outside the falls. You can put it in a small 6" round valve box if you like and use plenty of dielectric grease on the connector. Easy, peasy, mac and cheesy.

I'm not following what your suggesting.

I'd like to see what you mean as well.
