I live fairly close to these guys (Benchmark) and used them not long 
ago--to rebuild the return (low-pressure, from reservoir) hose. I 
made the mistake of not establishing a price ahead of time, and the 
rebuild turned out to cost nearly the price of a brand new hose. So I 
concluded that they are rather overpriced compared to other qualified 
shops mentioned by listers from different areas; the price you paid 
is further evidence of that. They may do good work, but are barely 
"cost-effective", IMHO.
