I've bought one of these:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Car-Motorbike-Hand-Held-Vacuum-Pump-Tester-Brake-Bleeder-Set-Auto-Bleeding-Kit/172930276305

which I've used to drain out the fluid before making new brake lines. I have yet to use it for bleeding but it does seem like a good bit of kit especially for the price.

Not sure who you're asking but the vacuum bleeder worked very well once I'd replaced the PVC tubes it came with. They were very inflexible but a couple of quid for new ones made the job straightforward.
