    The guy you wanted to buy the top up from had a good quality Askoll 3500L pump.

    @Leslie...it just gave in yesterday..i put the plug switch off and when i put it on the pump just stopped working. when i put it on the impellor does move but its almost like the pump is in reverse,,but not as powerful..sounds weird but hard to explain

    i would like to repair the pump as im happy with the power consumption on it...but not sure what the problem is...the impellor is still in good condition...wonder if the pump internals are stuffed...anyone know who i can send the pump to in cape town?
