Bruce, what do you have for suppliers in your area? It's just nice to have a pump 30 miles away instead of 3 day's away. But in reference to the pumps I was talking about some issues have come up with manufacturing....need I say more. Bring the work back home America!

I understand what you mean, but, if they do, the cost of pumps will increase by at least 50% ....if not more.

I'm willing to pay a bigger price if we can get good quality control back like when this country had pride. We have to start somewhere on getting our home and jobs back.

I agree. The problem is convincing everyone else. You'll know that you are making some headway when sales at Walmart start declining. 80% of their products are imported from China.
