    3 pumps ----> working 6 hours --- 2 days
    6 pumps ----> working 6 hours --- 1 day
    1 pump -----> working 36 hrs ---- -1 day
    9 pumps ----> working 4 hrs ------ 1 day

    or

    it takes 18 pump-hrs running for 2 days
    it takes 36 pump-hrs to do it in 1 day
    so 9 pumps would take 4 hrs to do it in 1 day
