Default Mains water

We are without central heating as the boiler's died- so have taken to the
caravan on the driveway for hot showers. Excellent, apart from the drag of
having to frequently refill the Aquaroll.
Now have water on tap-without the expense of the Aquaroll system.
Bought an Opella Torbeck side entry filling valve (for toilet cisterns) at
cost of 8.50.
Fitted it through hole cut in Aquaroll cap. Screw a Hoselock fitting on the
threaded inlet and lay Aquaroll on its side. Connect to garden hose and you
have a never emplty water container.
It needs two openings in the Aquaroll-one for the filling valve and one for
the outlet pipe to the van.
Thought of sending the idea to the CC but as they get lots of income from
adverts I don't think they'd publish.

Brilliant Idea

Some one had a URL to a website a year or two ago , giving detailed instructions
and where to get the bits and pieces from

I could have kicked my self for not following it up when I'd discovered the site I
was visiting near oxford ( 7.50 pn ) had all the pitches fully serviced, sheer
kwality !!

I use a ten gallon expansion tank, with a seal lid doe's the same job, but
easier to fit the ballvalve etc
and also the ordinary part 1 b/valves cost about 1-50p and it's cheaper
than an aquaroll, and it can be used to
carry things in when travelling, sort of duel purpose.

Think the idea of a plastic water tank with a ball valve is a much better idea

Congratulations to who ever
