    Blasted water

    Water is the bane of my life. I seem to spend my life stopping leaks at home and in the van. I'm away for two weeks and the Sureflo pump has sprung several leaks. I've tried putty with little effect. Now I've emptied the tank and I've bought 25 bottles of water. I'm on my own so I don't have to be too fuzzy.
    New pump ordered and will be home before me.

    Welcome to the age of spastic plastic. It had to happen apparently. Most of it is built to replace these days, one must bear in mind also that it does go through seasonal variance unlike domestic products.

    Get some of that black rubber tape on a roll. My tool kit consists of Bailer twine, self tappers, a screw driver, old hover cable and rubber tape and thats it. Fixes everything from leaks to broken exhausts in a knackered old Kontiki.

    Ah, Bailer Twine. NZ is built on that stuff! I was introduced to no.8 bailing twine whilst over there and fixed the hab lighting, broken bed, door catch and gas cooker in the wreck of a van we hired. Brilliant stuff, in fact I actively went looking for things to repair such was it's versatility?

    Every farmer knows the value of orange bailer twine. Entire farms are held together by it.
