Jebao return pump just failed on me

Hi all,

So I've been rather quite on the forum as things were going smoothly for a while now. My pump decided to wait for Harvey, street flooding and me not being able to go anywhere, to stop working!
It did that once but I just had to unplug and plug back in to have it work.
I think its rather old now but yet I tried to clean it, with no avail.

Any suggestions on what to do while waiting to be able to replace it? Anyone has a pump they want to part with, located in the heights (given the flooding I wouldn't venture anywhere further at this point), or can it wait another 2-3 days?
I have my echo tech MP40 that keeps the flow, but without return pump, no skimming or filtering... (besides the rocks of course)

Thanks for any tips, as always

You will be fine for 2 or 3 days.
Just do a 10% water change everyday and have some air bubbles going in that tank.
I have a few pumps laying around that will work for you.
But not one pump is worth going to risk the drive down from innerloop towards Katy.
Maybe a some guys in your area want to spare the backup pump, cause you need to have a backup pump in all times.
