    Hi JCC - I just want to get clarity on what you asking? Do YOU actually want to BUY this stuff?

    You want us to tell you what we THINK the kit is worth or what WE would be willilng to pay for it?

    How old is the stuff?

    Do you have model numbers perhaps?

    Thanks man.

    Second had kit usually goes for around half of it's original cost, unless it is exceptional, i.e. not new but usused.

    I want to buy the stuff second hand. Waiting on model nr but the kalk stirrer the kr 1000, the carx i think is the small on. The skimmer is the turbofloater 1000, might be wrong but it could also be the am 5000 shorty

    prices would be ex shipping, be careful as shipping can be expensive on the bigger/heavier items..


    the current exchange is giving some people who have this equipment the illusion that they are sitting on a gold mine.. while it is very good equipment, there are other very on par brands out there... this is coming from an aquamedic fan... my suggestions of pricing are based on what i have seen these items sold for over the last 6 months, good luck with your negotiations but dont get ripped off..
