    You buy extra insurance to cover the system, it costs about £80

    Yup normal van Insurance WON'T cover the damages to your tanks etc, only the van, you'll need additional cover for tanks and equipment

    Be careful and do it right. I insured my van last year and declared in the comments box that I had a water tank. My van was stolen and 3 months later I received a letter advising I was not getting paid for he tanks, system and half of the van cost as the firm did not cover water tanks. Luckily I am or was an insurance broker so after 5 months and a lot of worrying I took them to a tribunal and won.
    There are companies that cover this and some don't so do declare it as you only want insurance to pa whenyou have a claim.

    Alexander Swan cover everything, you also have the option to have a replacement van fully kitted out with ionics if yours is in an accident and needs repairs.

    Is that regardless of the system you already have?

    That sounds good
