    right guys I've been wfp for 8 years now and I'm thinking of getting the hot system in for winter.

    first of all help needed in what kit is needed

    what boiler do you all tend to favour?

    what litre per minute is sufficient?

    do i need to get thermal hose?

    can the pump take hot water running through it?

    what is the system lay out like, e.g boiler after pump I'm assuming.

    do they use much gas?

    any problems working with this system in the winter period?

    thank you in advance.

    Hiya dude do you still need info on this? I run hot water all year now. Would never go back. LPG boiler I have, think it's 7ltr per minute. My old man also runs the same. You don't run hot water through pump the boiler is the last point before hose reel.

    Depends
    how big the bottle is. I have a 13litre I think last about 2 weeks maybe slightly less.
    I leave the doors open so I have right angle flu to take them Out the door well towards the door.

    Cool,

    Looks really good, could you perhaps do a video explaining it all? And showing what leads to where etc (I'm clueless when it comes to heaters)
