By freak (and by freak I mean screw up), I closed the door too hard and it severed/shorted the wiring on my pump. The breaker tripped but the cord was damaged. I used this opportunity to extend the cable and add a switch (so I wouldn't have to buy an extension cable when I relocate my pump closer to the garden).
This is my quick and dirty -- but effective - wiring repair... Saved me $12 (pump=$15) - well $22 if you count the extension cable :P
Step 1: Getting Started
A wire repair cord costs $3... while this little extension cord costs $1.25. So, I also got SP rotary switch for $1.50....
Go ahead and cut the bad wiring off - then cut the female portion of the extension cord off.
Step 2: Strip and Solder
Glob on a bit of solder. If you have heat shrink (and I do not), don't forget to throw some on first. Otherwise, solder away - I know messy, but this is a hack - not something to be nice.
Step 3: Enter the Dirty
Solution, extra liquid gasket material. This is a fast setting stuff that dries pretty hard. Goop on and let it cure....
As for the switch, follow the directions on the box ;)
