Pro's: it is ok for multi-users, which means you can resell it. It has a great price point and it works well. Also, it has a 3 year warranty unlike most other pumps only having a 1 year warranty.
Con's: not a lot of retailers carry it, so you may need to order it online.
I do sell Hygeia, so if you prefer to order direct from me just shoot me an email through the contact me form and I can order it for you and have it shipped directly to you. I will offer a free online consultation to help you put it together.
