    I have an old aqua medic turboflotor 1000 that is powered by an aquamedic pump. It looks like these aren't made any more? It looks like I can get a replacement impeller for the current pump for $60. Ouch. Any thoughts on replacement pumps for this?

    Thanks for any advice!

    Forget repair, you should pick up Marty's SRO 8000

    Well....maybe a bit. You could make an aquarium out the skimmer though ;)
