    The cost of quality dental care is getting ridiculously high and access to care, especially in small towns, is extremely poor. I am determined to find a solution and I need your help.

    My goal is to be able to set up shop as a fully functional dental office/lab in a vacant commercial space for 3-6 months and then leave the space in the same condition. Plumbing is my major obstacle.
    My chairs use sterile water in a self-contained system and I have portable sinks/washing stations, so no water lines needed.

    The problem is suction. I did some research and found a self-contained suction unit from China
    (photos and link below) that's exactly what I'm looking for. I don't trust the reliability and can't afford to wait 2 months for the shipment. Is this something that can be built by an experienced plumber/handyman?
    It is extremely important the pump can handle heavy use, cannot be too loud and cannot have hoses to trip over. It also needs an air/water separator, amalgam separator (to catch silver fillings) and a filter trap.

    Is this doable? If so, where to start? Approximately how much and how long to build? Is my monkey-brain missing something?
    Thank you for reading my post! Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
