Water somehow getting into the air pump?!

Hi everyone!

Has anyone else had trouble with water in their air pumps?  I have a double air pump for one of my window farms, and both have check valves to prevent water going the wrong way… Not to mention it has been running constantly.

Yet, somehow, water has gotten into the pump and now it’s not working…  I’m hesitant to even get another one unless I have any idea how this happened (they’re not exactly cheap…)  It’s a Petco brand pump which I can’t find online now… Was it discontinued?

It’s been really humid here, but that shouldn’t affect the pump, right?

The other window farm pump (Tetra Whisper) is working just fine.

Thanks in advance for your insight!
