If evacuated, keep in mind the portable ones get 8 hrs or less on a tankful of gasoline. That's it.

Yeah that's the biggest problem I fore see with the generators is their lack of running time, and u can only get so much gas to run them. Are there battery powered pumps and filters?

There is battery powered Aerators. You can buy at fishing tackle stores. They have small ones that run on 2 c batteries all the way up to some that will run off a car battery. I was thinking of buying a really good battery back up like for a computer I hear some of them will run a computer for up to 30 hours.
