NEVER buy cheap rubbish!
You got it Mic.
Couple o' minutes (metric) to full pressure is good.
You are also dead on, as concerns the lines and fittings; same with other things, such as, say, jumper cables.
A lot of "NEW" jumper cables won't be worth a flyin' fart. They will fail "right out of the box."
Speaking of metrics, which is colder; -40*F or -40*C; I can _NOT_ keep it straight.

I have been buying only good tools for the last couple of years. Before then, I couldnt afford them. In hindsight, I should of just saved up! Live and learn I suppose.

Water freezes at -100'c boils at 100'c. The body sits around 37'c I think. Comfy day is about 27'c but where I am can get up to 43'c (heat wave) last summer. With 100% humidity, makes for an extremely long, miserable day. If you survive it! lol

Winters almost over. Had 3.5" of rain the last couple of days so when it warms up again, be all go! Been a mild winter for me here.

Lat and El, hmmm I have no idea! Im not far from sea level I'd say. Do a Google on the Gold Coast/Currumbin Valley. Have a look at google maps maybe.
Heres my local beach...
