Re: [IP] Broken Pump

Any time in my 11yrs+ with MM I've only had trouble a few of times in the
beginning, and MM had a pump to me within 24hrs (it's been a long time it
might have been within 12hrs). MM even brought me a pump while I was at work
one time.  Maybe the area where I live has something to do with it, I am
only about 70 miles from there Sylmar facility.  Anyway I'm sorry to here
someone is having a problem, HOW LONG DID IT TAKE FOR A REPLACEMENT , I
don't remember reading that detail?
