    Thanks for all the reply,s . As I managed to look after our elecsols for 9 years without much know how , I will be getting wet ones again now . Our batteries are easy to get at and lots of room round them . Thank you for all the pointers ?

    New batteries

    Thanks for the reply . Originally I had 3 elecsol 220 unsealed and topped them up when needed . Lasted 9 years or so then bought 3 varta sealed 2 are ok and the 3rd just died lasted 3 years .I thought I would be easy no maintenance ! I have the dimensionsof the area so will check sizing . As we now have a larder fridge freezer 12 v I find the two remaining batts not quite enough and have to charge them more often when out cruising. So would unsealed batts that I top up be our best bet ? Regards Greg.

    New batteries

    Hi guys . I currently use a 50 amp pro charge ultra to charge my 3 varta fd180 ah batteries . I recently had to remove one of my batteries as it was very hot and gassing quite bad the other two are fine and charge etc no problem . I now want to replace them and have been looking at 3 sealed explorer 220 ah calcium leisure batteries . I mainly stop in the marina on shore power and just get out for weekends and short trips when we can . Does this set up sound about right for what we need . I don't want the huge cost of deep cycle or AGM etc Any thoughts would be great Regards Greg.

    Problem with mono bloc taps

    Hi all . I've just been having this problem after fitting a new pump . I had to turn the pressure down to stop it then I read pump instructions and turned the pressure back up and while the kitchen tap and pump was pulsing on and off I turned the screw in the pressure pump and now no more pulsing and all is good . You can adjust the pump itself to stop the pulsing .
  9. Thankyou for the quick reply,s . I will look into fitting the valve . Regards Greg.
  10. Thanks for replying . Yes the jabsco problem was very odd it's about 3 years old and over the last few weeks got gradually worse. Caused no end of trouble trying to find the none existent leak .it would over run after the tap was turned off then cycle while nothing was being used not fully pumping but a short run every minute or so for hours .
  11. Hi all . And how' Dean? . I recently had my jabsco pump running on after the tap was turned off and cycling when not in use took me weeks to work out I have no leaks .I have just bought a shurflo and now have pulsing on the kitchen tap and the washing machine . The toilet ,shower ,and bathroom basin are all fine . I have had to half close the stop valve to shop the pulsing . Not sure if that is the ideal answer to it though ? Regards Greg

    New Islington Marina

    Hi dave . I read it with the view that anyone can apply for a Mooring and the current boaters would not necessarily be given priority although i think it's unfair , given the stress extra costs etc . I'm afraid you may well be right shiny rebuilt marina , city centre living and a healthy waiting list equals raised mooring fees .

    New Islington Marina

    We also live in the marina and if the closing of the arm is anything to go by ( 12 months ) is most certainly wishful thinking ! . They have given a list of local marinas but I would think finding about 35 narrowboat 's and 5 wide beam boats a mooring each around Manchester is nigh on impossible. So the community here will end up scattered all over the the greater Manchester area and beyond , after all the upheaval and stress ,extra cost etc they then say we will be invited to apply for a Mooring ! How thoughtful of them ! This has forced us into some major decisions and we now have a new Mooring that we shall be moving to in a few weeks time and are very happy with , ourselves and Dean and his family were the first two boats in this marina . we had been in contact with the man overseeing the building of the marina and waited 5 years for our Mooring . Urban splash and the council built this into community with the help of the boaters and now expect us to go fend for ourselves for 12 months They should be ashamed . It will be a sad day to leave the people and the Mooring , but Home is where the boat is ! and we will be looking forward to seeing old friends and revisiting our old haunts on the river weaver .
