Facelift compact 325 & x-line 350 diy


Recommended Posts

Do any of you guys own one of these 2 systems I’m on the fence wich one to go with the facelift one works out a lot cheaper when taking into account the shipping and hose and real but has 25lt Less capacity and I’m wondering how much water is unusable in the bottom of the tank with it being a flat tank design.

any real live users input would be really appreciated 🍺

Stick 2 x 25l drums of pure in the van just incase.

Yeah that’s what I was thinking normally I only use 250lt 280 at the outside but would rather be on the safe side 👍

Then compact are sort of  hybrid between a lay flat and upright tank if you think your need more than 325l why not buy the 425l fir £100 more?

This trade requires alot of thinking outside of the box. You won't get ripped off or stuck when a problem needs solving

How do you secure the tank safely with a couple of chock ramps underneath it?

325l should be fine I normally use around 250l was just thinking how much unusable water would be left in the bottom of the tank due to the design of it.

i would have gone for the 425l but I’ve just brought a new van and it has a fold down front seat and drop down door section in the bulkhead so you can put long items in such a pipe and wood, I’m always doing diy so would like to be able to use that feature. The 425l would be to wide to be able to open the door hatch 👍

I have had the 325l system and I honestly like it never had a problem with low water issues but My work is very local so I can pop home and top up if need 👍 If your budget can stretch get the electric reel upgrade.
