Hey everyone...I am considering replacing my Ping with the Tslim but can't decide whether to make the switch, especially because my Ping has been great. But it's time to get a new pump and it's hard to go with the same thing when you only get a chance every 4 years minimum to change!Just want to get all of your opinions of the Tslim for those of you who have had some experience with it!Thank you!See More
