    Hello all,

    I am new member to this forum so I would like topologies if I'm starting topping that was here before. So my problem is how to set up my DIY WFP system to work on hot water. I have bought Kapma Geyser http://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=related&v=ZgmKVt4HgM0#/watch?feature=related&v=ZgmKVt4HgM0This hater has its own submersible pomp. My mam question is what should I do as I have two scenarios.

    1. Pure water from the tank will be going through kampa pomp than heated to system maim pomp than to DI vessel and to windows.

    2. Second. I can drop use of kampa pomp and get pure water from tank by maim pomp to kampa to heated and then to DI vessel and to window.

    My question is with of those scenariosm would be more effective. I would like to run contantly hot water so will be adding temperature controller to Kapma geyser. Something similar to done here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kampa-Geyser-Campsite-System-Shower/dp/B004T8SZ2O"]http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kampa-Geyser-Campsite-System-Shower/dp/B004T8SZ2O

    I will be very great full for any comments and suggestions. Soon I will be moving my system to new van and most o the connections will be done by my friend plumer on copper pipes (old system was is loosing too much water during work) so I want to make sure I will chose bst option as it will not be ease to change back again.

    Thank you so much.

    Sebastian

    Just cover everything up. If your van is in your driveway, you can put in the back of the van an oiled filled radiator, that will keep the back of ur van frost free. If you have a few quid, buy some kingspan and kit ur van our with it.

    If I'm honest, I don't use hot water, cold. Had no problems with it. Others on here do (use hot water) will be able to answer.

    i use hot and varys between 40- if really cold and 65, i use an immersion to stop every thing freezing, but if it is that cold that it is freezing on glass or floor go home, its good for first cleans
