Just drain the pump of water and leave the valve open wrap some insulation around the pump if you can .

It expands and shears all the bolts holding the pump together. You may be lucky and just need to replace the bolts. Before putting it away for winter then run it till no water is left in it. 😉

Yes it can cause damage to the pump. Drain the pump like others have said.

Always take the time to maintenance and protect your equipment, it's your lively hood.

Normally they have grease nipples on so you need a grease gun and a tub of grease. Something like this: Tub of grease and gun
