Just type in 'water softeners' on the net for a full range of information of the various types. I am a bit alarmed however by ashlar's statement that there are a lot of old asbestos pipe...

Shieldsportia, I have my 34' sailing yacht in St Vlas. Marina staff are very helpful and all facilities except it is quite expensive to take your boat out for the winter as they do not have a yard for the purpose.

Gas bottles should always be upright, including during transportation and storage. One trouble with regard to standard jubilee clips is that they tend to pinch the tube underneath the worm used to tighten them and can allow gas to leak. Try brushing on some soapy water onto all joints. If there is a...

Hi Gary and Joe, Marinas as UK sailors understand them are almost non existent. The depth can be very variable and I presume your yacht would need a bit less than 2.0m.
