    At first - sorry to hear about the load shedding. Secondly - I am SO SO SO glad to hear that you were able to get hold of a gennie...

    Perhaps look at the very minimum of investing in some battery operated air pumps? Perhaps a 12V boating bilge pump you can run off a car battery - to be used as a return pump....
