    that's the same that I have, there ones just have the safety over heating device removed!

    the ones you can buy on ebay are ok, but some need to have a bigger pump fitted due to the flow rate they need to work.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion hotwash.


    Regarding winter you may get a few extra days when the winter months are bad with day temp remaining below sub zero. But wfp window cleaning in sub zero temps with ice and maybe snow also on the ground even using warm water is plan daft if you ask me.

    Hot water is not just about winter, it's the best way to clean tuffers, get one you won't regret using hot water system. We use hot all the time, I couldn't and wouldn't want to be using cold again.

    If you get Lpg just fit in accordance with manufacturer recommended installation. Gas is dangerous if not properly vented with a flue. Don't be a cowboy and do it properly.

    Benefits of hot water, quicker cleaning and warm hands.

    If the floor is icy Smurf we just don't work, a bit like when it rains we don't work either.

    Just poped out to do a quote on this one which I think is a good example of when best to use hot instead of cold water.
