    The pump looks ok for what you want it for but not sure of its durability as have never used one of those myself.

    Regarding the controller I prefer to have a variable dead end detection built in that can be easily adjusted rather than just letting the pump pressure switch reach 100 psi before the pump cuts out.

    If it works ok and don't go for a silly high price might be worth a punt.

    Looking a how dirty the dials are I would say it has been used quite a bit.

    If you look on the back pic the date it's also 3 years old.

    I'd just buy a Shurflo pump. For the sake of saving a few quid you may have problems earlier. Buy once and buy right.
