I bought a Badu Echo Touch. Paid a fortune for it in aim to "Save Money " in the long run. Well It lasts 3 years then gives continuous problems with its seals to electrical parts. In other words... When you get problems, you dry the pump completely, make stand in the sun. Run it dry, no problems. Try and put water through it, you get problems. No one can fix this , I paid another 800USD for a try to fix, 1 year later same issue. This pump is not worth the money at all!!
