    Hi everyone havent posted in awhile been very busy :) anyway i've taken the next BIG step and purchased a van as the car/trolley setup is... well doing my head in .

    Hopefully i am picking it up on wednesday so i am trying to plan my system. On the shopping list so far...

    250ltr Tank - £119.56
    Pump & Varistream - £149.99
    DI Vessel - £76
    HoseReel & 100m 8mm hose - £139
    Battery - £48.87

    What is this best way to connect and charge the battery? Ideally i would like a split charge relay so i dont have to keep taking the battery out etc. Are they hard to fit? Has anyone got a how to guide? What other options or methods are there?

    Thanks
    Wil

    How come ur in hospital dude? Everything ok?

    Op-

    A split relay system is fairly simple to fit, if you know how to change a light switch ten you should be ok, alternatively an auto electrician should be able to fit it for an hours labour (around £45)

    i would go for a bigger tank as well, as you will soon find 250lt will not last you all day
