    More info, please - are we talking about torch batteries, or a larger (car?) battery?

    Either way, for about R70.00 I'm also interested in a few...

    Reef maniac, Will hopefully get more details tomorrow, but if I an remember correctly it uses 2 x D cell batteries.

    Jacquesb, Not sure, can't see why they can't be posted. My farther has a friend that can get them, getting my 2 on Sunday and will let you know what they like, but for R70, its better than paying R500+

    pump pic

    Hi friends :wave2:

    Got my 2 pumps on Sunday, they work well. They use 2 x D-cell batteries and connect to the mains via a 2 pin plug, as soon as the mains fail it automatically kicks in, Paid R61.80 ea. They are made by Resun and its the model DC-120. If you are keen and you can't get form your LFS let me know and I can organise for you, My source doesn't have anymore left but has put a order in for another 20 units, so if need be I can book for you, though I would have to confirm on the price (couldn't imagine much fluctuation)

    Hi Lighty - Brent...

    I am definitely also interested in at least 4 of those air-pumps - perhaps more. Brent, would you perhaps mind if Lighty ships mine together with yours? We can make a plan to get together that I can get it from you then?

    Lighty - please PM me you banking details.... Pay-day is on Monday! ;-)
