    Hi chaps,

    We have an ionic van, we have tried out the hot water and their new parts per billion.

    As an overall system, it seems to be well made. But we are considering our options in replacing our other van which is a omnipole system.

    We are not into making your own, so we are looking for a company.

    Things which matter to us:

    - a low cost of operation
    - high quality of components
    - excellent support and aftersales care

    Would appreciate your thoughts.

    Also if you are in a sharing mood, what poles you have found work the best.

    Thanks

    Alex

    Short answer:

    Pure Freedom

    Gardiner poles

    But: I have just converted to DIY and am really pleased - saved a fortune. But that's just a personal choice - appreciate what you have already said about not wanting to go down that route.

    Good luck

    Welcome WindowsSussex. Can't help with the van mount as I did a DIY and saved ££££'s. Why don't you do a DIY, it's very rewarding seeing it working and being able fix it.

    As for poles; Gardiners full carbon.

    Hi & welcome :thumbsup:

    You must have forgot the huge budget bit as ionics parts per billion hot water systems are not cheap.

    Regarding build quality most use off the shelf parts so there are plenty of suppliers out there to choose from. I like the look of grppamax van mounts myself but have not had any dealings with them. However I know one or two on here like shazzy692002 has one you could ask

    Agree - I'm never ever, ever unclipping it or charging it (as I only learnt your supposed to do that t'other day) but mine just sits quite happily behind the tank - and imagine it will continue to do so as I don't have a charger - that's my excuse - think the world have sold out.

    Thanks guys. We will have a look at Pure Freedom. Like I said, just not keen on the DIY at the moment.

    I have seen Facelift on window cleaning warehouse? Are they any good?
