Ill stick to my speed bleeders. Just crack the bleeder screw 1/4 of the way and start pumping the brake. They have a check valve in them so air cant get into the system. And at the end of the job you don't have a sprayer to put on the shelf to take up space

great simple design! i even have a spare clean pressure bottle in the garage i never used so this is a no-brainer for me. pressure bleeders have been around for years, but the DIY crowd seemed to adopt the vacuum pump method over the pressure method for some reason. the need for a pump like this really comes down to how often you do brakes. it might not be worth it to everyone to keep it on the shelf for use once a year. but when you need it it will be a life saver.
even if you dont do brakes that often, just consider it an investment in your relationship with the wife... you wont have to yell at her for letting off the pedal when you have the bleeder open... to me... PRICELESS....
