In October 1964 Northern Rhodesia became independant from Britain and became Zambia.

I was under the impression that all of Rhodesia is now modern day Zimbabwe, named after the ruins?

 

As for miles I seem to remember from School that they had several different distances for a mile and Queen Elizabeth I decided to just use one, reportedly in an argument with an advisor as the different measurements made her angry... When you decide something 500 years ago, might be a good idea to look them over now and again!

I think it extends to the whole continent of Africa sadly although sometimes it could extend to every country in the world.

Sorry. I've just dug deep into the archives and it was a 25cwt Bedford. So that's 1 &1/4 ton which I presume is its payload.

No thanks. You just know that as you’re getting going on the lash, some boring ba5tard will start talking about a univalve or new pole 😩

WCW very kindly sent filters, delivered this morning. Sent me 6 x 10'' filters instead of the 6 20'' filters I ordered. In fairness I called them and they are arranging collection and delivery of the correct ones for Monday and only took a few seconds to sort out, not ideal though!

Replacement filters arrived today, delivery and collection... Sent me another 6 10'' filters 😫

 

Once again very friendly and helpful about it but that doesn't change the fact that I will have to wait until Wednesday to get the filters and ideally my sediment filter needed changing 1000 litres ago!

I've finally got the sediment filters, don't look right to me... Anyone seen these before? They look like they're made out of wool, not like the usual ones I get. The pic of the spectrum one is the 10'' one they sent, this is what the ones i've always used look like.

IMHO those are fine. They are 5 micron so that's what you want. You don't need to get to hung up about sediment filters; the most important filter is your carbon block. There's a third filter around that looks like they used wound string to make it.

 

If the sediment filter isn't exactly to spec then the carbon block at 5 micron should trap and stray particles. Interestly, Grippa Tank are now specing the Fiberdyne at 5 to 10 micro. I wonder what's changed as Gardiners only speced the same filter at 5 micron.

I see they have also put the price up since I last looked when answering another post about a week ago. The boys aren't shy when it comes to pricing!

Just seems wrong mate. If I ask for a dairy milk and the cashier gives me a Sainsburys own chocolate bar I wouldn't have it. After the comedy of errors this time I think i'll order elsewhere next time. Where do you get your sediment filters mate?

 

I spotted that when I ordered but I didn't think it was an issue as its still advertised as 5M Fiberdyne... Sure it will be the same as the ones I used to get from Gardiners, seems the same.
