The one that broke did so because I tried to fill a dual pump reservoir using the second pump rather than the first...
Quickly learnt my lesson. It literally squealed like a dolphin, then two weeks later it was still pushing just fine but got super noisy so I had to replace it. The fact that it still worked after all that abuse is a testament to their durability, but you still gotta treat them right and keep them under water at all times. Now I can look back at my noob mistakes and laugh but at the time it was terrifying haha.
