    Why dont you just buy a immersion heater cheap as chips you can have hot water any day you want great for first cleans any time of the year and you have also got a nice warm van in the winter as it acts like a radiator

    cheap to buy not to run!

    when one is fitted to the tanks inthe house they cost about £6 a week on a small amount of water, to heat up a 250lt tank will cost a lot.

    the heater that im testing out at the minute will cost about £1.30 a week if it is left pluged in and running 24/7!

    most immersion heaters run at 3kw. so in an hour it will use 3kw of electricity. so an average of 10p per kw. so 30p an hour.

    the heater that im testing at the minute has been pluged in and been working for just over 3 hours and on the meter it hasnt even used 0.1kw yet!!!
