    Cheers lads!

    Because I have no access to a pipe bead roller, I bought a couple of o ring fittings from Bunnings, cut them in half and soldered them to the copper heater hard lines to use as a bead.

    Yep good idea! I havenít had the time to do that though itís on my mind. I get generally a 30-40 minute block of time in which to do things.
