Re: [IP] Pumps and Jobs



I have my own plumbing company and am constantly crawling in and out of tight
places.  I have had everything happen with the pump that could happen.  From
falling off of my belt and ripping the set right out, catching the tubing on
something and again ripping the set out, and even rolling over on it
constantly.  You learn from all of these experiences and you adjust.  I was
one of those guys that didn't want to wear this thing but I can honestly say
that I was just being stupid and my life has forever been changed.  I am now
awaiting my third pump and am hopefully one of the first ones to get it when
it hits the market in August.

  I think your friend is finding excuses not to use a pump. I had a lot of
  aprehinsions (sp?)
  before i got one. If he wants to wear one he'll find a way to work around
it.
