Done that way Ive never had a leak . I have been using it for two years and it has not become brittle.


Sounds similar to what I had already. could you post a close up pic give me a better idea of it pleas. Also sounds cheap and cheerful just the way I like it. Thanks for the links guys but all in the states cost silly money to post and pay duty on.

Ill be passing your way later this week and will bring you a piece of it. It is sold in rolls with the 1/2" qualpex pipe already in it. My local builders supplies take the pipe out of it and sell it to me. I cant remember exactly how much it cost but certainly less than €1 per metre.

I've never been happy with my dry wash cartridge contents. The nearest supplier of hardwood shavings comes from a power planer, and the shavings are small, and have lots of dust in, I gather it gets clogged in no time. What sort of places do you guys source the right kind of shavings, i.e. light hardwood,i.e. oak or ash, no dust? I'm stuck!

I find the finer/dustier stuff works the best as you get more surface area, if you use an upflow setup with slow feed through you will get virtually zero particulate coming out once the chips have been saturated.
Cheers,

Hi Frankle, I get really nice hardwood shavings from Burrowman, he's in the woodwork business. He is in Wexford but Im sure could send you some if you cant locate a local supply.

Hi guys, anyone got an old central heating oil boiler lying about that they are not using. I'm thinking of doing similar to what's in the youtube vid below. I wouldn't need a burner, just the boiler and it could be an old one, it just needs to be servicable, ie not leaking. Any help would be appreciated.

Methinks you're going to need more than a 'few bob' for your wedding. Smile
