replacing the pump

I spent the bulk of Sunday afternoon replacing the pump in the fountain outside the downstair's bathroom. While we were in Florida, it looks like the cleaning person turned the pump on even though the fountain was empty and the pump burned up.

Replacing the pump in this fountain is not a trivial job. The top part of the fountain is made up of three 100 pound pieces of concrete; they have to removed. The pump is hard wired into a switch inside the bathroom. The wiring runs out of the bottom of the fountain (a 200 pound piece of concrete) in the the ground. The wiring has been dug up and respliced into the house. I got everything back together except the top; I need one of the neighbors to help me lift it into place.
