    I'm glad you do coz phil left me a bit confused :D

    So nothing's being plugged in to the sockets in the wall then.

    Wheres all the rubble and dust? I thought you'd have knocked at least one wall down :biggrin:

    What size sump you getting phil? I'm hoping I fit all my stuff in next to mine, cal reactor, top up etc it looks a bit tight in mine
