Niagara Irrigators (owned by Olympus)

Hi all. Our surgery department is currently using the Niagara irrigators. Now that ownership has gone to ACMI then to Gyrus and currently to Olympus, it’s become a real biomed unfriendly situation. Now the only thing I can get for parts is the bladders and nothing else. No rocket science with these, just valves and tubing and fiberglass. Are your surgery departments using something different? Is there a third party parts source for these Niagaras? At an average of $1300 a pop for a minor repair, it’s a hard hit to us financially.
