    Hey Everyone,

    First time poster, so I hope this is the right location. I picked up the Herbalaire Elite Lite kit back in november. Unfortunately this doesn't come with the pump or the bag fills. The pump is currently out of stock and I'm trying to get something working for the weekend, I'm in Toronto and can't find it anywhere.

    I've been told some just use an aquarium pump and to get one from a pet store in a pinch. Is there any recommendations? Where do I connect it? I know the Elite has a white port on the bag, and a dual controller port as well. Does anyone have have details on what to look for? Preferably on amazon.ca

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the Forum, sorry you're having troubles enjoying your new vape.

    You were told right. Amazon no longer carries the one I used on my HA when I couldn't find the factory one, but this should do OK:
    https://www.amazon.com/Uniclife-Aqu...=UTF8&qid=1521017301&sr=1-8&keywords=Air+Pump

    Not sure what you want WRT connecting it. In the HA I have it plugs in the side and the bag fills from the MP? Look for a hole below the heater that blocks hitting it if you cover it with your finger? Blow in there and it comes out the top.......and into Mister Bag?

    I went into Petsmart and bought the biggest aquarium pump with variable speed.

    Worked great on my HA v2.2, wish the high output pump was integrated better with the Elite.

    If you have a nebulizer it works perfectly to fill five or three bags at once

    Salutations CoffeeBot,

    Sort of late but still useful for future readers who would consider a most affordable zero-pump scenario:
