Frank, what a neat and effective solution. I'm full of admiration for what you've achieved. Good to see you've also got a proper Tankie in the driving seat. I'd be interested to know where you've sourced the pump and fittings, Thanks for posting your progress, as ever it's interesting g to learn from such good work. Stephen
