    Connectors- I use microbore not hoselock.

    DI size- At least 7l I've been told. Tho I have a small one & never had a prob.

    Hose size- I use 6mm microbore, but think 8mm works just the same.

    either buy a kit rdy made as thay cheap enough for what thay are tbh or just look at the kit for what you need mate

    what van you got or going for ? and tank size ?

    i went for a 250l tank its a bit small if u do more than 10 houses a day tbh

    P.s there will always be odd little bits you'll remember after you've ordered. But as far as connections, always order a couple even if you need just one. You'll need them in time & will save on postage.

    Water tank has a hole in the bottom already where you screw in an elbow joint & jubilee clip the hose onto it.

    Don't drill it mate, the outlet hole is already there, when you screw in ur elbow bung, use ptfe tape to make it water tight.

    And I just fill it through the lid.

    the lid is going to be covered as its a flat tank in a berlingo not a lot of room and was going to make a storage shelf on top, is this a bad idea??

    No it's a good idea, I would just cut round the lid for access.
