    Tried to work today, although the ground temperature is below zero all was going well (or so I thought). The water did not choke up in the hose or the pump so happy days!

    The problems started when I tried to adjust the pole hight, after twenty mins of using it fully extended I couldn't get it down again - clamps frozen solid. I had to gently heat them with a lighter!

    Anyway, had to give up work. Any ideas to combat this, can't see me getting much done this week :(

    In the garage which is above freezing, they do warm up in the van but it's not long before they freeze up
