    hahaha reminds me of a conny roof i done. the air temp was 1c and the glass froze my brush and jets solid. another time when i just started out wfp in winter i had ice slide down the glass and if i stopped for a few mins the jets would freeze up coz there brass. result was getting all the hoses ontop of the engine and defrosting them. now i keep all my barrels inside. got 10 lines up in my hallway now.

    i just get extention lead out and put heater in the back of the van for 10 / 15 mins later every thing is fine,

    best tenner ive spent in a while,

    although water on my pole today was frezing on the outside, last 2 winters ive snapted poles when thats happened.

    Oil fired radiators are safer and cheaper to run :)
