Canister Filter Leaking

Had a bit of a hiccup with the 6 foot tank, I did a water change yesterday and found the canister filter leaking, I lost about 50 liters of water.

Not being able to get the parts till next week ( I live in the country and it needs to be delivered ), And not wanting the bacteria in the filter to dry out, I came up with a temp solution.

I took the media trays out of the canister, Ran an airline to the bottom tray and stuck the whole lot in the corner.
