    I have a diesel system, use hot water all the time. Warm hands in winter as the hoses warm up and so do carbon poles.
    It's a no brainer really, cold and take ages and be the same as the other cold water fish in the pond, or hot water and stand out from the other fish.
    Try out systems hot and cold and you will find the answer.
    Hot wash window cleaners recommend hot water systems.

    If you have the money then buy a diesel system.

    Personally I am not sold on them yet.

    I was given a demo last year, and apart from making first cleans easier i couldnt really see the point.

    The finish was exactly the same.

    it would take a good deal to convert my vans.

    Yeah 100% agree with this.

    The main issue for me, is i work from a backpack system. I hated working for a hose and tbh i dont know how people do it!

    Well basically you have a immersion heater in the tank. To keep water warm.

    I dunno, i am replacing my van next year now and tbh i have my heart set on an ionics system anyway, so may get a thermopure one lol
