    Sourcing Pure water in central scotland.

    I use single DI no problem, along with most guys I know. Only go double if you can afford the outlay.

    Swivel Threaded Adaptor Leak

    HI @Alex Gardiner, Thank you for the advice. I’ll give this a go in the next few days and see if it sorts it. If not, I’ll place a order with yourselves if I decide to buy another one (haven’t completely ruled out trying some sort of fixed connection, if something of the sort exists). And sorry, I understand you can’t guarantee something won’t be faulty but good to know if I do order from yourselves I have a warranty on it. Thanks again! 😄

    Swivel Threaded Adaptor Leak

    Like I have mentioned, the water leak is coming from the moving part of the Swivel adaptor itself.

    Swivel Threaded Adaptor Leak

    I looked at that but not leaking from thread, leaking from the join in the elbow itself. I assume it's like a ball and socket joint or something? @Alex Gardiner, do you sell any sort of alternative? Or failing that, if I order one from you guys can you guarantee it won't leaking? I really can't be bother contacting WCW to try and get them to fix it, cause I know they will give me the run around. I assumed it leaking when there is low pressure is normal and hence why I never contacted them in the beginning, or am I wrong, should it not leak at all? Like I mentioned in my last post, it appears to be coming from the built in swivel connection, not the thread (I've used PTFE tape).

    Swivel Threaded Adaptor Leak

    Hell all, need a bit of help with this one. Been using one of these to connect my tank and reel since I set it all up. Unfortunately I've always had dripping problems, (a few months ago it drained so quickly I couldn't finish the job) but more recently its gotten bad. Normally once pressure is increased in the system its fine, but at the beginning of the month it started dripping non stop. I'm at my whits end with it. Can anyone propose a solution or, more ideally, a alternative? Preferably one that is fixed (if possible) and thus no area for links. I've got a photo of mine hooked up (you can actually see a drip falling in the photo) and also a link to it on WCW, were I brought it. Thank you, Alexandros https://www.windowcleaningwarehouse.co.uk/90-swivel-threaded-adaptor-brass.html

    GARDINERS BACKPACK WITH EXTENDED HOSEREEL

    Alright mate. Sorry for terribly late reply, had one of those weeks! Backpack - Gardiner Two Female End Stops - One is included with backpack (be sure to specify it if buying new) the other you will have to buy, yes. Jubilee clips - Can't remember exact size. I think I got mine from B&Q. I just eyeballed it when buying mine. Best bet is buy a few packs and see what fits, rest return. The Hose - Unfortunately it was a mate of mine who had spare gave it too me. It's just standard garden 6mm Microbore, though. The 30m should work, though go longer if you wish (though will add weight). https://gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/all-products/pump-hose/hoses/reel-and-system-hoses/microbore-trade-reinforced-hose-6mm-id-11-5mm-od.html Trolly - From B&Q, link was in previous post on this thread. The hose Reel - Also from B&Q, link was in previous again. Your gonna need two of these to make the reel work - https://gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/adapter-ez-snap-trade-end-stop-hose-with-a-standard-pole-hose.html No leaks with mine, never had a issue. You need one outside and inside. Protector ball - from Gardiner. Your also going to need a ratchet strap (got mine cheap off eBay) and Bungee cords got mine in a big pack from Screwfix. Don't need to worry about expensive ratchet strap as its not being used to hold anything dangerous in place (link a van mounted tank) so cheap ebay one should be fine. Hope this all helps. Give me a shout if you need anymore help! So sorry again for getting back to you so late!

    Silent assassin!

    I knew a hairdresser that had to get stitches after posting after a dog bit her hand through a letter box. As you can imagine, in her line of work it caused massive problems for her! You can buy small devices to push letters and stuff through, but to be honest something like a old rolled up magazine works. Just something thick enough to push the invoice through no bother.

    Thank you, Gav. I think ad supported is the way to go with a website like this.

    No I understand that. And I know you need to make money to run the forum, don’t expect you to do it for free! I really appreciate these forums and just don’t want to see them go downhill. The worry is new members won’t experience the full benefit.

    Well that would be helpful, thank you. However I do ask you reconsider the making of the private forum a cost addition. Isn’t the short term boost from potential subscriptions outweighed by the long term loss of ad revenue from more members? Could you not have implemented something similar to a lot of the online newspapers and stopped access to the site (or even to just parts of it) while a ad blocker was enabled?

    I completely understand your need to fund the sites, (and thus whitelisted your site on my ad blocker so you would still make ad revenue) but don’t think you should have changed the private forum to supporter only. I had forums I was following on there. Could you not have created a new private forum and stopped any more posts in the old one, but archived it so we could still see the old content?

    Tulsion resin shortage

    Thanks for the info. I’ll just need to change my buying habits from, what I think they call ‘Just in time’ (E.G. being too stingy to buy until it’s absolutely necessary) to stocking up instead.
