I was trying to get MM to send me only half of the reservoirs and 
said that I was going to refill them.
My supplies are billed to insurance at 100%.
The guy I was talking to said that sometimes the reservoirs can get 
little hairline cracks in them and then leak and ruin the pump.
I don't know about that, but it sounds like they just want to sell 
more reservoirs.
Do you think that it's pretty safe to do this and how many times can 
a reservoir be reused?
