Spares are listed here

Spare bases are available reasonably cheaply direct from the mfr from here:

I got sick of constantly changing my broken strainers too. Mine finally died when the white pump casing also cracked. The new version of the pump (edit oops I may be thinking of the Rule Mate version here) - the 1100A - seems to be much better designed and made out of less brittle plastics - although time will tell ...

I've also had a good response from ITT in the past complaining about a pump failure, so they are reasonable to deal with.

HTH, Neil.

I "found" a nice offcut of perforated stainless sheet and a bloke I know folded it in a U shape. It drops down into the well and provides good protection but can be wigged out in a second to access the pump.

Sounds like a good "find". Mine will probably be a flap of similar material over the whole opening as it's going to have to be a manufactured job anyway a sheet cut to size with a hinge ought to do it. Fortunately I'm doing really well at getting bits knocked up at a decent price so I'm getting a bit more sorted.
