    Well I didn't realise I was running my rodi unit from the hot tap... I use an adapter to connect it to the kitchen aerator tap

    What a big mistake all of a sudden it was like a fountain coming out of the side of the house it was coming out of what I assume is an overflow pipe but directly underneath it is a surveillance floodlight

    Swmbo was frantic, "are you trying to blow up the house !"

    Lol ...
    I tried telling her it was my fault I put the wrong tap on.. And that it was just overflow pressure but it only made it worse....

    "Phone someone - the AA"..(we have a like an emergency plan where they'll do jobs drains and things )

    lol I'm trying to keep low profile cursing under my breath ...

    Their goes my lie in tommorow morning

    And the moral of the story is never run your rodi unit from the hot feed:-/
