Aeration holes had remained unchanged as far as I could tell from the low res pics. A couple days the pic never came through due to cell signal. Then weather blew in wednesday night/ Thursday morning. The pump ran all day Thursday with very little sun so it pulled the batteries down close to the low voltage disconnect point. Friday morning the solar power shutdown as soon as the big pump tried to come on. So no pumps ran Friday and no pumps have ran today. More snow expected today, full sun expected tomorrow and some more snow Monday.

This pic just came in. Getting into the nitty gritty now. Bottom of the third inning.

We will see how the holes respond over the next couple days. Taking bets that, when the pumps turn back on, the diffuser with the pipe opens up first!
