Problem was how to remove it and get the new one in - the shed that houses the pool equipment is very close to my neighbours fence and I guess was put up after the heater was installed. Solution? Remove the shed! It also is very old and quite decrepit.
Yesterday my handyman son came over with all his tools and dismantled the shed and we stacked it by the front curb. It took about 4 hours on the hottest day of the year and we were both sweaty and grimy by the time we were finished. But, lo and behold, overnight it is now gone to scrap metal heaven, we presume. At least it is no longer there.
The new heater will be installed in a couple of weeks and my bank account will be empty. Never mind, " 'fits money?" as my old uncle used to say. I just hope I won't have any more major expenses for a month or two.
