    It does look cheap but then again, it is. Anyone setting up wants to do it cheap and if this is as good as a backpack pump (I don't know) then your system will be as good as a backpack will it not and people rave about those. This pump, a battery, a charger and a 25l container, how much that cost, a lot less than a backpack I know.

    that will be fine and can be run with out a flow control, it only draws 3 amps so battery will last longer

    80 psi, is fine, as i think sureflo do a 60 psi, dont be fooled in to thinking that you need to pay a fortune for the biggest stuff in window cleaning, i use a motor from maplins as a flow control and never had a problem, cost be £15 compared To £90+ for a new flow control,
