    Does anyone know how to repair a tear in an airpump diaphragm? I'm not able to find replacement parts.

    Thank you, Jim.

    Maybe patch it with an inner tube patch? What kind of air pump you running? Havent repaired one since my old penn plax 500 something. They are pretty cheap to just replace these days.

    They are Petco ac9904 model air pumps. It’s not about cost. These are hard running little pumps. I’ve used them indoors, outdoors, in my tanks, tubs, and ponds. After all of this, they start breaking down the same year Petco discontinues them. I bought an Alita al-60 for my fish house but I like these smaller pumps for my indoor aquariums.

    Thanks, Jim.
