Re: [DML] New DeLorean Power Pump


Your post got me curious. You're saying that the rollers are a 30 year old 
invention. What setup does the new pump use? Please, explain.
I also have to disagree on your idea of warranty. If a product is so good 
why not just sell it with very long or even lifetime warranty? I know I 
would! I makes to sense to discourage potential customers by giving just 90 
day warranty. If it never breaks they can safely warranty it forever! It 
won't cost them anything... if they are this good.
On the other hand, if the manufacturer is not sure about the longevity of 
the product.... 90 seems about right.
