    You can try kijiji or some other buy and sell site, but since your from the north
    you might have to order it on-line or by phone. Try pro-tect, Marathon or Albany pumps they all have web sites but are located in the south. The pump I have on my system is a Albany gear pump works great over five years in service. The Albany pump is a lot coin $500 to $800. Look around and see if you can find it use, but if you can not find one bite the bullet and order a new
    one best money you will ever spend.
