Jay, it happened again. That's 6 resiviours it failed on. Tandom replaced the pump and so far so good over the last week even with the carriages from the lot that was failing. Another weird thing is my sugars have been dead on good since I started the new pump. Makes me wonder if the one that was giving me loading issues had more than just that wrong. Well good luck and hope you contacted them.
