Your main concern is your 180 and your 58, right? If you run your skimmer on your QT to break it in, it will be nice and ready to go in case of a power outage.
A 6-gallon air compressor is about $200, and if you could trickle in air, might last a few days before needing to be re-filled. Or see if there is a battery control that will send short bursts of air into the tanks.
7-10 days? I would say generator. All battery backups and battery operated heaters and fans would last for a few hours/ a day or two, but over a week without electricity...You probably need a plan for a few days, and then have another plan for over a week. Battery backups and a compressor could be a short term plan, but after day three, maybe rent a generator?
