    When I got mine mate someone advised me that the connections on the battery are very loose so I undid mine & tightened them up. It may be that but would have thought it would have cut out before then. Mine were very lose before I tightened them.

    It ended up being the flow controller was broken water had been leaking in and corroded everything, so I've taken the pump out and mounted it in my van, will it be ok to run on full flow all the time and just use my tap as a controller???

    Anyone with one of those backpacks needs to replace the pathetic excuse for hose clips inside with proper stainless jubillee clips, it'll save a lot of aggro.
