[IP] About pumps



Pumper and Friends,
    I have seen some posts about each pump spec. so I when to each of the
 pump maker site and check out the numbers. I hope I can get the format to
 work in this e-mail. Yes, there are other pump out there but they are not
being sold at this time.

                                             REMEMBER TO SMILE AND BE HAPPY
