I'd like to see a picture of your "Improved" maserator pump strap. And if anyone else could provide a picture of their pump hanger too as I understand Phoenix has done something better since my 2007 days. I have the generic perforated metal strapping material that is sold in a roll at the local home improvement store, used to hold up soil drain pipes at home.
Agree on the carpet. I got tired of cleaning ours, so I took it out and installed laminate flooring. Lot easier to keep clean.
