My suggestion would be to try putting a towel or washcloth underneath it, if possible. If you have a check valve you could even put it on your floor if it's carpeted. As long as no intakes are blocked and the pump doesn't get hot this should be an easy solution.

the sun through the water, and thinking that water the thinnest of air.' - Herman Melville, Moby-Dick
