special pump/pure alfalfa tea?

The thought dawned on me that our pool cover pump is unused in the summer. It is a pump designed to remove the surface water from a tarp/pool cover over the winter. It has a built in filter as well which does clog up with worm guts over the months. The hose fittings are for standard garden hose and the thing can virtually run dry without burning out. The ability of this pump to handle some particulates might make it possible to recirculate affordable alfalfa tea thru a system.

RE: special pump/pure alfalfa tea?

Are you trying to aerate the tea, or to distribute it to the roots? Most teas are strained and diluted before use to avoid pump and sediment/nutrient buildup problems.
