    I usually time mine but just forgot to put the clip round the hose and it popped off while it was filling up so the hose was just filling the back of my van up and not the tank lol

    I have flooded mine loads of times... I pulled up the ply boarding as it was storing water,, made a mess underneath.. Today was the second days of treating and applying waterproofing.. If left it would only be a matter of time before rust sets in..
