    Don't like that prominent disclaimer on the unit - this type of thing puts me off buying completely :(

    It will work for a short time, but (talking from experience with a DIY unit) it will cause the pump impellers to shear off within a few weeks, so no, it's not really suitable.

    i don't think its a good one either though. there are much simpler ways to do it which require less bits and has a longer life
