Generally speaking, squeeze tubes are easy to replace but other componentry is more difficult.
No. Since water does not actually enter into the peristaltic pump, performance is irrespective of water quality.
Generally, peristaltic pumps have some capability when pumping into back pressure. Most peristaltic pumps can pump into back pressure up to 45 psi (or 3 bar).
Squeeze tube material compatiblity is the biggest consideration to make when deciding chemical compatibility.
Electricity and battery power are the most common energy sources.
