I ended up working way up north for a week... had my girlfriend looking after my chams while I was out of town. Anyway, on Tuesday last week I got a panic filled phone call... The misting pump is in the resevoir and still misting! What to do!?! Take it out of the water! It had been under water for at least a day, still running on the timer. One week and 28 mist sessions later it is still pumping as good as new! Great product! Thanks Marty!
