My mate Spanner with the China garden pressure pump ( we incorrectly used it for household purposes) now about to be replaced by a dedicated electronic controlled Grundfos high pressure unit with excellent volume flow. It is ok Spanner. We are not replacing you. No way!  Took Brian the (almost) plumber most of the day to change over the system with pipe fittings I already had. One poly to galvanised threaded pipe fitting took me way over an hour to undo. Pile wrenches just slip on the plastic. Solution. I got a bucket of very hot water (from hot water system) and poured it slowly over the problem area. Grabbed my big multi grips. Un-screwed easy. Desperate guys do desperate things. Saved a 32km trip to town & back. Dollars.
