Ouch...when I lost power all I ever did was dream of battery backups. Always glad to have that sense of security.

You could always use those computer backups. I forget the name of them, but they should work for any pumps or whatever. Something I need to invest in myself.

You can use ones for computers, you can make yourself one from car batteries...lots of different options. That or have battery powered minnow pumps for power outages.

The battery powered minnow pump is a good idea.

I was going to use a UPS but Tue price of one that will actually last a while is crazy high. I was talking to a friend and he can hook up jebao rw pumps to rc car batteries and get 4-5 hours out of them so that might be an option
