    Those kobold boxes are good
    Me and Posh both have one
    Mine is a 60psi and is good enough..100psi will be good
    Nothing wrong with using them but i would buy a spare pump in case as they can be swapped in minutes
    Mine is happy connected to 70m of hose with no issues

    i guess becauce a shurflo pump and a good controller is bullett proof and will last for years and years,would you honestly go back to useing one of those spruce over what you have now?
    being tight with equipment is not the best way forward as it hinders potential growth in your business-if you stay tight then you'll always struggle to earn money
    i've done all the diy things and been tight but when you invest a few bob on the right kit the rewards come back-they really do
    an example
    use an slx instead of a cheapo glass fibre pole you may get an extra job or two in the day-£10 extra for instance,times that by five=£50 per week times by 4 equals the monthly £200
    times by the yearly £2000 just by buying a good pole
    imagine what a good set up would/will create extra revenue daily/monthly/yearly and the increase in turnover and profits could be by buying wise and not being tight?

    Well said Kevin. The old cliché 'you get what you pay for' is very applicable in this industry.
