    Made a discovery today -

    the hoses that connect to my water heater inlet / outlet sometimes get kinked and stop the flow - turning off the burner.

    disconnected the inlet hose, and screwed on a shower hose - with the silver plastic reinforcement round the outside.

    Can't kink, good flow - should last for ages.

    Happy days!

    Sounds good to me! I really wan't to look into heated water systems for my van, even though we've had a good winter where I'm at we've still had a couple of days with the hose/pole freezing over. How do you rate them Hinty?

    Wouldn't go back - 10/10

    Faster - dirt melts off the windows, particularly snail trails
    Easier - hoses are more supple
    Better - first cleans are soo much faster - esp green conservatories

    Also find that the water curtains beter on Hydrophilic glass (apparently it has a lower surface tension)

    Have a look at my "kept me working" post
