good luck finding gas tanks lol the guy at home depot laughed at me when i asked if he had anymore. i got 4 gallons in my generator already a 5 gallon container full and a 2.5 gallon full as well. im ready :fight2:
Not sure what happened in your case, but 2 D batteries in an air pump should last a lot longer than 3 hours--- more like 24hrs. plus. Still, having a supply on hand is very sound advice.
Good advice Metro..
Does anyone know how long the vortech battery backups take to charge fully? We haven't had power since Monday and I'm worried the battery back up will die out soon...
I would have hoped that was the case but I went through 6 in one night alone. brand new pack of batteries. If you can recommend which battery powered pump brand works for 24 hours I'm going to go and buy 2 of them this week.
Just to follow up on this I decided to put one of my Via Aqua Millionaire D250's to the test. At 1:30 PM yesterday I replaced the batteries with a fresh set and turned it on. It is now 12:30 and the pump is still humming along. It is not attached to a tank so the lack of back pressure might extend battery life a bit ( not sure), but something was not right with your pump and/or your batteries for them to exhaust in 3 hrs. The roughly 24hr. run time is consistent with my experience with numerous brands of battery air pumps.
Anyone besides MetroKat find otherwise?
