    hi guys,heres my price breakdown-
    trolley £55
    pump £17
    volt meter £4
    on off switch £2
    voltage controller was £4 from china but i couldnt be bothered waiting and ordered one in uk for £8
    battery £13
    junction box £15
    strip of metal from b&q to do tank bracket and mounting the control box £8
    panel mount fuse from maplin £2
    ive not included the microbore pipe as i'd buy that for whatever system i built but that cost £30 for 30 mtr's of 8mm bore.
    wiring and connectors i had laying about as did nut and bolts for brackets, i had some silicone to stick battery to box and also a piece of wood for making the flow switch more central.
    two things i got to do is im waiting for a remote from china to wire in that cost £5 but not sure if i'll fit that as im gonna get a aquatap for pole and the other thing i got to sort is a charging port and charger but not spending more than a tenner looking around!

    Nice.

    How do you recharge the battery? Does that pump have a pressure switch?

    Also, what size enclosure is that you are using?

    Thanks
