Re: [IP] RE: D-Tron Plus....good buy?

Desitronic rep told me the pump D-Tron Plus is not waterproof.  It's water 
resistant, not the same as it being water proof

>3.	It has a backlight, so you can see the display in dim light (I use mine

>4.	It has a computer interface via an IR port.  You can download abt. 1400

>9.	Its very user friendly.
>I dont know how old your son is, but there is a lock feature on the pump
