    Thats a lot to take in for any size producer. What did you lose for a releaser? I may have a spare I can let you use for the season.

    I am sorry to hear that. I can sympathize, to some extent. My equipment is in a low area, and I had water half way up my Busch pump, but fortunately didn't cause damage. Had to rescue pumpout pump just before it submerged. Hope you can get replacement equipment in time!

    All the best,
