    I'm looking at making a DIY van mount if a van mount doesn't finish at the right price for me on eBay, I'm just wondering if pump boxes are worth the money?

    Or buying a brand new DIY kit from somewhere better off than buying the bits separate? As I already have a r/o and poles

    Any advice is appreciated thanks

    no, i think they are a waste of time, you can buy a lot of the stuff cheap second hand

    I'd buy new kit. At least you know it's not going to break within 5 minutes, hopefully.

    If you need a tank, Ecosure sell seconds on eBay. I got a 500L flat tank for £99 plus £25 postage.

    Yeah think I will do, you can get kits for £800 on eBay but don't need some of the expensive stuff in it tho
    I need: tank + outlet valve
    Pump + strainer
    Battery and split charger
    Hose reel

    Anything else? I have 100m of hose at home

    Also anyone know where you can get a cheap tank frame looking at getting 350litre tank upright

    I didn't think about getting someone to make one. Thanks might give them a call when I get a tank, there are a few engineers in town so will compare what prices would be
