    just doing research at min. looking at the options. ionic are expensive but seem to be quality, a friend of mine has one. im also looking at Grippamax system. i want something that is SAFE reliable and quality. but need a practical van not an oversized monster!

    Only crash tested to 30mph, not very reliable and the systems look quality but under perform compared to other systems and even more so than a home built system. We bought a 700L Thermo pure delivery system in 2008. It fell to pieces.

    Can I just say Chris, people talk about 'crash tested' systems but all that proves is the tank stays bolted to the floor.

    Your van travelling at 60mph with a full 750l tank meets my van travelling opposite direction at 60mph with a full 500l tank I can guarantee that the fire and rescue are cutting us out and if anything is left it will be an air lift to the hospital for sure.

    Mine is bolted to the chassis but I dont think of it as 'will save me in a crash' I just think of it as keeping my van manageable whilst cornering etc without the tank sliding around.

    Both of these just seem like a shed load of dough for what is essentially filters, water tank, pump, controller, and a brush.

    I guess if you have the larger commercial jobs it could be worthy but for domestic semis and the such it just seems overkill to me, many thousands spent that is not really needed to be spent to clean a house perfectly. Just my opinion

    BTW I have a 500L Brodex tank in the back of mine, (got it used for a killer price so no harm in having Brodex) and I drive a SWB Traffic (Vivaro) although plenty of space for the system I think I would if buying again go for LWB just for that little extra room. (12 inches longer)
