welcome to the world of SWC:razz:.....check some of the laguna pond pumps at freshwater stores.....thats what Laurie ended up buying when her pump died.....you need to be really careful tho as at some point either the pump body or the volute on the skimmer changed....we had a bear of a time finding a direct replacement......

Going to follow along. I have the same skimmer/pump combo and have been asking around for a year now to find a suitable replacement pump. As soon as I can find one that atman is going off the balcony!!!

I screwed up.....you said atman and I was thinking that was what we replaced Lauries pump with, but it was a askol.....I have no idea if an askol will work for you.....
