    Thanks Shazzy. I wouldn't put systems in vans for a living though lol.
    What's good about doing your own system is that you learn everything about it to correct any problems etc. This system works perfectly and I never get air locks so long as I remember to turn off that tap at the tank outlet when travelling with not much water in.
    The only thing I have changed is I have also used the microbore hose straight from the pump to the reel instead of the regular garden hose, and changed the plastic connectors to these. :)

    :confused: Yeah, the video link has obviously been put here to show us 'how not to do it'.
    But i feel sorry for the guy, he seems to think that he is doing well. :thumbsdown:
    If that van showed up on these shores, he'd be laughed back to the US of A.

    jimmy on these gardiners fittings, this one, shut off twin couplings with plug, does this mean when you disconnect the hose pushfit fitting from it, no water can leak from them,
    like the female rectus 21 , i have plenty of 8mm microbore hose if i can use that instead of 1/2 inch garden hose, and your normal plastic pushfits @£1

    if so what would i connect onto my barb fittings coming from the pump, which i have my garden hose clipped onto the male hose barb straight 3/8th - 1/2 barb screwed into pump inlet + outlets.
    it will be ideal if they allow no water to leak from the fittings if uncoupled from pushfits,
