    Hello

    Newbie question about floating device at water line input. I moved in this cottage where a water jet pump draws water from the lake. At around 30' from the shore there is a white floating canister attached to the end of the water input line. What is the purpose of this white floating canister. A simple marker to show where the line is? It was there all winter and still there this spring. All my neighbors do not have such floating canister.

    If that line is flexible, I expect it is mainly to let you pull the end of the line up to the surface. There might be a screen to clean. The canister would serve as a marker, even if the line is rigid.
