NO! You'll unwrap it and have a rusted mess of a pump that will likely no longer work if you wrap it in plastic. If you wish to cover it, do so with a lean to type structure that allows free air circulation. Try to keep snow from building up on the unit and it will help extend the life of the motor. Beyond that taking it in is the only other way to store it.

1979 Leocraft Motorhome. With a 454. When the engine gets hot it stops receiving fuel. Any ideas? Changed fuel pump and collapsed fuel line section.

Sounds like vapor lock. Vapor lock happens when the fuel in the lines gets way to hot and boils/vaporizes and causes stalling . Have the fuel lines wrapped in an insulated wrap or relocate them away from heat sources. Sometimes winter grade gasoline will cause this also.

If i insulate my pipes, will it stop them from freezing the water? This problem has been happening a lot this winter, it is colder than usual where I live.

Insulating your pipes won't stop the water from freezing but it will take a much longer time for the water to freeze, so it defintely helps a lot. I would do it if I were you.

How do I winterize my krystal clear sand filter pump

The manual might provide some insight but usually the Intex pools are vinyl and are taken down and stored indoors for the winter. This makes a lot of sense in most areas because they won't be used in the winter and if you kept it set up the sun, wind, and temperature affects the plastics, etc. so that its lifespan is reduced. If it is stored in a place that freezes then you would need to make double sure there is no water in the equipment.

I hope this helps.

How much space should i leave between loops on roof tape?

1st You must know that you can attach the heat tape by spiral wrapping, or by straight run (in- line with the pipe); held temporarily with a few pieces of tape. Of course you will need to apply an insulating wrap (in either case).
The straight run gives the least heat per foot but covers more pipe. The tighter (closer) the spiral wrap of the heat tape loops, the more heat per foot but the shorter the coverage. If the pipe is 1/2" or 3/4" DIAM. then a straight run is sufficient. If 1" to 1 1/4" then a very wide spiral. If 1 1/2 to 2" then a closer loop spiral. In no case should the loops touch each other nor be closer than 3/4" to each other. And avoid having the heat tape cross itself at valves, elbows, etc. PLease note that this is all based on winter temps of 0 degree F. or above and using normal 1" THICK WRAP INSULATION. If you have temps down to -30 or so, then give minimum 2" thick insulation.
Good Luck Macgivor.

Window air conditioner storage

sure you can but you have to prepare it for the winter.

re-oil the fan motor and make sure you wrap the whole unit up with a plastic wrapper just like the one used in the kitchen, the one that you can stretch to cover a whole stainless food container. then put it in a box to further keep the moisture away.

then after the winter and you want to use it again,
unpack it and inspect the fan motor. make sure that it is freely moving without binding or sticking.
let it stand for a couple of hours so that if there is dew inside , it would evaporate first .
then you can use it again.

tnx 4 using fixya,
