    If you're doing a DIY, then you'll find some of their stuff good value. When I did my DIY, I bought hose reel, Rectus 21 tap and Shurflo pump off them. I bought a controller from cleaning spot, tank off eBay and battery off eBay

    If you're doing DIY then yeah I agree with Tuffers, take bits from everywhere. Go wherever is cheapest for individual bits. That seems to be the most common route. Saying that when I first got all my kit I priced it all up as cheap as I could while still ordering good parts, but from several different companies. The just to try my hand I went to several companies and asked the if they would match my total figure to get it all as a job lot from them. One company, www.surecleansystems.com said yes. So he took my parts list which I had priced up and matched it. It's also noteworthy that you often get charged delivery on smaller items. So when you order from loads of places you are paying delivery multiple times. Where as when you order a job lot from one place you often get a deal on delivery for ordering so much. At the time I was so happy with surecleansystems that I've continued to order from them ever since. I have an account with them these days. I've also found cleaningspot and RO man to be very helpful. Very few people know RO's like ROman. RO man did me a discount on filters by ordering them in bulk.

    What sort of savings are we talking talking about with homemade vs pre made? I'm a little interested.
