    Most of the equipment can be easily sourced and over a weekend you can put a system together if you're DIY minded.And if you are on a tight budget or unsure and don't want to make a big investment you can dip your toe to see if it is for you.Over time you can replace the equipment to suit your needs.
     
  4. That is great I can use it over the weekend. How often I can replace the equipment? And do I have the right to replace it more than once?

    You can replace it as many times as you like if you pay the money,I would think like most things,pump last a couple of years, poles a year,brushes and adaptors a year,All depends how much you use the equipment and how heavy handed you are.

    It looks like a translator from another language into English as the grammar is not brilliant...
