    Hi, its a bit chilly here and my hoses keep freezing. If you use ISO is it any good, does it affect the clean? Looks like I'm trad cleaning for now.

    It's good to have the skill to fall back on
    Some guys would not be able to work if their gear packed up

    I would'ent want to rely on just the one method. There's so many things that could go wrong with WFP, I always have ladders with me just in case.

    I've heard of iso being added to a trad bucket to help stop the water freezing on the glass but never botherd myself as if it's that cold I want to be indoors.

    What sort of temps are you seeing? My water was fine in -7 on Monday no freezing on the ground. If you're water is pure it should stay liquid until -10 ish unless it picks up dirt.

    iso can be used to stop water freezing dosages differ from who you talk to,at -4 i'd suggest a 5% ratio,trad wise a good drop of it into the bucket works well,it should have a tds of 0 check it first to see as some water it down a tad,it mixes very well with water so dose and give the bucket a good swirl and you'll be fine,it will suppress the fairy bubbles a bit but hey-ho
