You need surface agitation. You can go to a sporting goods store and get one of those bubblers fishermen use in bate bins to help agitate the water that use batteries. I had this happen for 12 hours so took a 2 am trip to Walmart and got one. I need to get something better though because I live 40 miles off the gulf coast and we sometimes get hurricanes that bring in bad storms. You can use UPS battery back up like what you use for computers. I know that some people use a car battery but I'm not sure how that works.
