Re: [IP] Pump questions

Although there is indeed only one manufacturer for the Silouettes /Tenders
/Comfort sets, and they are identical, the comforts tend to be cheaper.
Maybe its because the other two are both tied to the two pump companies,
and the companies have to take their pound of flesh.  But if you do use one
of this group, call Fifty50 pharmacy 800 746 7505, and you'll find that
comforts are cheaper and readily available.
