That's an incredible offer man... I hope everything is OK in your neighborhood. The pictures you posted looked awful....If anyone wants a 2000 series Honda generator lmk. I am in Massachusetts and located a store that has 1 left. I bought the 3000 from them. I forget price but I think it's 1200 or 1300. Buyer will pay me actual price in receipt. If I do not know you, or know someone who can vouch for you, I cannot layout the money. Hopefully this can help someone. Buyer must pickup from me in sheepshead bay Brooklyn. I'll be there later this afternoon
Call me 347-661-4501. I don't have a computer to use
It depends on your pumps and your battery backup. I have an MP10 and a fully charged battery lasted from Monday at 4pm until this morning (Thursday). If you have more pumps or MP40/60s it won't last as long.Tonight at 6pm will mark 96 hours without power.
I have been running my generator 16 hours a day for house heat, lights and the fish tank. Those hours that the tank is not on power the ecotech backup powers at least the 2 power heads to keep some circulation and air exchange. Problem is when not on generator the tank plummets from 78 deg to 75 deg in 3hrs losing 1 degree per hour. That is why I am having to run the generator 16 hours a day. It is using 1/2 a gallon an hour so 8 gallons a day at $4 a gallon is $32 per day.
I have 15g more on hand to last me 2 more days...............but there is no restoration estimate for me..............and the stations by me that have power are running out of fuel. :-\
I am trying to get a handle on how long I can run the tank off the generator just on the 2 ecotechs being run very low on their battery backup.
I have been doing 3-4 hours on then 3-4 hours off with the generator to preserve gas. Now gas supply is running out and I have to adjust that schedule to allow for more off time.............just wondering how far I can stretch it.
