Aquaroll

Hi, I have recd an Aquaroll for Xmas present, but Iím not sure how much use it can be. (AQR to save typing)

Certainly, as a 40L container, rolling it to and from the site tap may be less work than my present two 20L containers, but lifting it to the filling point is more than I fancy. Iím old.
There seems to be many threads relating to using an electric pump, same as the original in the 30L onboard tank, but most of these threads seem to be confused people.
Is it worth the effort? My guess is that using it simply as a container, with a pump to fill, is about as much as is needed. How or where does one connect the AQR pump? I donít see the necessity to draw the water from the AQR by some auto system in parallel with the internal, just refilling internal when (manually) required.

Hi,
Weíve got an internal 30l and aqr(!🙂)
The pump fills the internal tank from the 40l. manually, by plugging in when it needs a refill.

Being a techie geek and an automation engineer, I took this a step further by installing a float switch so that it keeps the internal tank topped up automatically. The next step is to make the controller so it switches the external pump off if it runs more than 30 seconds after the tank pump stops, to stop it running dry.

I suppose it all depends on how far away the tap is.🙂

My Triton was adapted (before I owned it) to draw all its water from an external tank. I use an Aquaroll for this and it is brilliant. I have an insulated, silvered cover to keep it from getting too warm (worked well last summer at 40C!!). It lasts us a weekend easily. I would never go back to two onboard tanks like our second Triton (430) had. The first had one (a 420) and that was OK, but so small you kept refilling...

I could quite easily be persuaded to take out the internal tank and fit a pump connection.
However, Mrs gadget is not in favour so itís not likely!😂

Having the aquaroll heat up in the sun would be a great advantage for us as we only use tap water in the kettle for brews. That would save gas!
