    You can paypal me and I'll send you a new float for cost of postage, packaging, etc... it will take me several days before I can get myself to a post office.

    I had the same problem, i made a temporary float out of cork to use until I got a replacement

    Great. Now it looks like I have some other part I need to anticipate failing. I think I would try putting the float in hot water and watch for bubbles, then seal it with a tiny dab of J-B Weld. I have used J-B Weld to repair leaks on a car carburetor and it lasted years until I finally replaced the carb.
