I went out one evening and found my plants wilted.  The Tower Garden pump had quit working.  Thinking it was totally dead, I ordered another one.  About a month later, a friend of mine took the pump and fixed it.  Here’s how we did it.

Pull the front of the pump off and clean out the mesh

Inside the Tower Garden pump, you'll see something like this with a magnet on the end. Pull it out.

Now use a toothbrush to clean the inside of the pump. If all goes well, this should get the Tower Garden pump working again.

As always, just because this worked for me, doesn’t mean it’ll work for you.
