    Doubt you going to get 24Hrs out of a UPS, unless you are only running a 30W return pump....

    I know! I am stressing big time as this is a first for me. Hoping that Dorry pets (@lonzo) might have a battery operated pump that I can buy today. Otherwise I have a gennie that I can use and 2 wooden spoons if all else fails. Still stressing though. . . .:sweatdrop:
