    Yes, no disagreement there - but what are you responding to? Where have I suggested that a company should do something it’s not entitled to do?

    Well, I take your point! Certainly, grey water discharge is already illegal in many countries. However, if we think Alan de Enfield’s reading of bye-law 40 is correct, it’s currently fine (legally) to pump anything into a canal or river so long as it doesn’t cause an obstruction. I’m not aware that it’s really much of a problem, which must mean that most people act decently without needing the nudge of a law to make them do so - and that’s a good thing, of course.

    Well, that’s an argument, I suppose. It does leave us with no prohibition on discharging sewage anywhere on CRT waters, though, doesn’t it? Your argument earlier appeared to suggest that there was such a prohibition, but that it didn’t apply to the Trent - or did I misunderstand you? On the second point, CRT are within their rights to prioritise certain prosecutions over others - they’re not obliged to prosecute every violation brought to their attention, and are entitled to concentrate resources on the more serious issues. But it’s a moot point anyway, as they very rarely bring any prosecutions.

    I’m not sure what basis there is for saying it doesn’t apply to black water - as you helpfully quoted, it applies to “material of any kind whatsoever”. On that reading, yes, it would apply to grey water, too, but CRT provide guidance on what they will allow to be discharged into the canal, so that’s unlikely ever to be an issue.

    General Canal Bye-law 40 prohibits throwing or discharging anything into a canal (and canal is defined as any inland waterway under the control of the BWB) so I think that would cover it.

    No - not permissible on the Trent (possibly below Gainsborough?)
  7. On ours there’s a little knob hidden behind the control panel. Turning this anti-clockwise reduces the amount of water used for filling/flushing.
  8. I think it means just what it says so: AC in > 16a MCB > Multiplus > AC out > CU (inc. RCD and MCb(s)). I think a lot of people would rely on the 16a MCB on the shore supply bollard rather than fitting another one. Not sure if that's best practice though.
  9. Well, that’s interesting - thanks.
  10. Just for information, they're now available from ASAP Supplies too - https://www.asap-supplies.com/seagull-purifier-element-rs-1sg - no cheaper (still £115.00 - with a couple of quid off once you're logged in as a recognised customer) but I do like their service.
  11. Have you tried http://gianneschi.co.uk/? As Ian says, these are top quality pumps, but I think these days are targeted more at the superyacht market (the prices on the website would seem to suggest that to be the case!)
  12. I'm in exactly the same boat. Pure Water Online lost their contract with the manufacturers, so I'm surprised they're still selling them (old stock, perhaps). Nova Leisure are now the sole UK importers. They don't sell direct to the public - but their website has details of where you can find their dealers. I saw them for £115.00 at Midland Chandlers!
  13. Thanks - that's good to know. Perhaps I'll get a decent deal from EE (I like the coverage) when it's time to renew?
  14. We did exactly this, replacing our home broadband with a mini wifi router from EE which we take from home to the boat. 64GB for £30.00 per month, so about the same monthly cost. Can't see any deals quite this good at the moment, though. We have, on occasion, exceeded the 64GB, but are being a bit more careful about that, now.

    EE bill

    But if you're using a MiFi device - like the OP and me - you never see the texts (unless you log into the admin bit of the device). I never sent a text from the device authorising anything - but saw texts in it thanking me for subscribing!
