    So I installed my wfp system into the van at the beginning of the week and had a old car battery sitting in the house for months, so i charged it for a hour and feeling very proud of myself I connected it up to the digital controller.

    Nothing...

    so I thought ohh well its the battery, I know its buggered so I went on ebay and bought a new one.

    But being impatience I decided to charge the stuffed battery all night and before going to work this morning I connected the 2 wires to the battery and .... Nothing.... no lights or movement from the pump or controller...

    So I thought well... what if I push the button on the controller... and IT WORKS... Somewhere they could have at least told me on the instructions that the button that looked like the enter button was actually the bloody ON SWITCH....

    so after laughing at myself I an now very chuffed and feel a bit stupid but wiser.

    have a fun day....

    LOL at least it wasn't anything bad! We all do these silly little things. At times I get to a job pull hose out put pole up turn tap on an nothing, then I realize that I didn't turn it on! So it's just one of those things!

    heres some photos, I still need to put the wiring into a pipe and I moved the battery to behind me and I will get a switch in the near future. Also got the solar panel tonight so I have hooked it up.

    All ready to go this weekend. 60 cleans....
