    Hi,
    Mine broke :-(
    Anyone know where I can get one from, or what I can replace it with?
    It's not mission critical because it is for a smallish (waist high) garden fountain, so no fish are about to suffocate (or anything).

    It's 4mm diameter and 118mm long.

    Regards, and thanks in advance,
    Zoltan

    years ago I had a pump in a fountain with broken shaft. Being some obscure unknown pump I could not find a shaft for it.

    I eventually made one out of a toilet mechanism, the brass lever or connection rod. Cut to legth and it work perfect until I sold that house.

    Obviously cannot do that in sea water. But in a little fountain, why not.

    Cool idea, thanks.
    I would have thought that it would end up being too heavy, but if it worked for you, than I'll give it a try.

    Thanks again,
    Zoltan
