    My old 500 used to take 4-5 hours to fill.

    On my new system I added a booster pump (available from anybof the suppliers) and can now fill in less than 2 hours.

    Six hours for a quarter tank sounds like really low water pressure.

    Good luck.

    Added to my system. This way I am not restricted to only filling up at home.

    A decent booster pump should halve the fill time - but will cost you!! Unless you can get info on the Clarke pump mentioned on here in the past. Water pressure and temperature will have a massive effect on fill time as will air in the system.
