aqua culture air pump

Hi folks;

I have an aqua culture air pump and on the bottom is the model number (?) it's101508.
This has been a great pump for my 10 gallon aquarium, but the two diaphrams just broke and I have yet to find parts for it. I hate to throw it away. Does anyone know where I can find parts? On the net all I get is a wal mart ad for the pumps. My spare is doing fine, but it would be nice to fix this one and maybe get a couple of spare diaphrams to go with the parts.

T hanks, Brian

You may be able to match up a diaphragm from a whisper or some other brand, but there aren't any replacement parts available under that brand name. Same with the hob filters Wal-Mart sells, made cheap and disposable so you'll buy a new one later.
