My neighbor got tired of paying for gas so he made his own. It actually works pretty good. What he did was construct a surface piping system. He used 2 inch dia. 500 ft of pvc cut to 25 foot lengths. The whole thing sits up on his porch roof (you don't even see it). The water pickup is on the bottom of the pool (8ft deep). The pump is 12 volt solar powered. I think he spent about a day building it.
