I just use it through the winter months to keep my gear from freezing. I do like it but not enough to want to use it all year

Not had mine freeze yet so I'll continue with cold till it does.

 

Only way it can freeze is whilst working as I have a heater in van overnight and having no bulkhead keeps it warm enough thru the day in winter

I like this suggestion as it does give an extra option in the winter. Of course you need to fulfill certain conditions, the main one being low tap water tds to start with. So it won't be suitable for everyone. As they say, "its horses for courses."

 

Its better than fitting an electrical heater element in the van tank IMHO.

 

The down side is that on the days you use it, you are wasting energy as the tank cools during the day and you can never predict how much water you will use that day. Hence the reason why the preferred method is 'heat on demand', only heating the water you are going to use at that moment.

 

So I can see where @peter rogers is coming from.

Just bought a 500w fish warmer. Hopefully that'll help a little.
