Default Switch tower for my pump

I threw this together, mostly from scrap, while on "light duty" recovering from minor surgery. The switch cover plate was the only new purchase.

The switch controls only the pump and is protected by the gfci outlet which is always hot (not switched).

I think I will like this better than having the pump mounted on the burner the way it was. This way the hoses can be already connected to the pump but completely out of the way until needed.

Nice work. What is the pump cover made from?

Thanks. I hope to test it on my second batch within the next couple of weeks. After my first bottling session.

The cover over the pump is just some old scrap 16 gauge sheet metal which I cut and formed to fit.
