From your experience, how often do you clean the main pump?
Is it a big hassle? Hard to reach?

Do you ever vacuum the bottom, in the sump area?

Do you ever vacuum the bottom, in the sump area?I vacuum the back chambers weekly, and monthly I take out the pump, heater, wave makers, etc and clean them in a vinegar bath.

I don't do either...

If the pump failed for some reason, I would take it out to clean it.
But I don't clean the back (sump) at all..no need IMO

I don't clean the main pump either. I will visually check the back chambers for junk and if I see stuff ill siphon it out but rarely there is anything due to the continuous flow of water through the chambers.
