Default Mistking pump parts

Does anyone know if it's possible to get a replacement diaphragm for my mistking pump? I've searched online since yesterday but I haven't been able to find any repair parts or a suitable sub.

I just did, I searched their site but couldn't see anything about repair parts for the pumps, decided I'd ask here to see if anyone had any previous experience fixing their own, and then ask them.

They said they don't sell parts for their pumps, only replacement pumps.

In case anyone is interested I was able to repair my pump. I wasn't able to find a replacement diaphragm, which serves two purposes, one is to seal the access port on top, two is to allow the pump to build pressure by blocking the outlet until a preset amount of water pressure can build up and force the spring and seal away from the outlet. So instead I used some aquarium silicon to seal the port in place, and used the same silicon to seal the plastic port cover to the bit of manufacturers silicon that was torn from the diaphragm. I also built up the silicone at the base by a fraction of an inch to give it a smoother surface and to increase the amount of pressure required just slightly. After putting silicon on the face of the seal I set it on a strip of wax paper to give it a smooth surface and prevent sticking. I've checked it with 5 nozzles and it seems to pump just fine with no leaks and strong spray pressure. Prior to putting the spring back in place I tested the pump and it definitely wouldn't work without it and the seal.
