    Is it possible to fill the tank up with water from the kitchen hot tap? Would hot water effect the resin or anything?

    As far as I know you can do this and it doesn't effect the resin, but not 100% on that tho.

    You can fill up with hot tap water, and without any issues with your resin!

    I have just this last week: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SUBMERSIBLE-AQUARIUM-ECO-HEATER-25W-50W-100W-150W-200W-300W-FISH-TANK-THERMOSTAT-/180863877344?pt=UK_Pet_Supplies_Fish&var=&hash=item2a1c53c0e0 Someone else recommended it. Purchased this too: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/THERMOGUARD-PLUG-IN-DIGITAL-THERMOSTAT-FOR-TUBE-TUBULAR-HEATERS-/170811290657?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item27c5257421 I also purchased an inverter from Ebay, but the guy on Ebay is messing around so having to purchase another one.

    Going to connect it to a leisure battery... come the following morning, hey presto warm water!

    Not sue, going to give it a go... even if the water get's warm, and heats up for only 6hrs through the night, it will keep the inside the van above freezing so no freezing of my equipment, along with warm water Hopefully kill two birds with one stone :)

    Just use a strong leisure battery.. will keep you guys informed once my inverter comes.

    That's true. Over the past two winters, I have had to change pumps, Di vessels, and other bits, even whilst all my system is covered up. It can reach -8 and less throughout the winter here (I live out in the countryside almost).
