    HCairns's 7500l Sleeper Build

    The wait is over, electrician comes on Tuesday! Should be filling by the end of the week, fingers crossed...

    Everything is in place, and plumbed. Once the electrics are in Iíll fit the liner, seal the bottom drain, then once the silicone has had a day or two I can start filling.

    That stuff is watertight, right?? HCairns's 7500l Sleeper Build

    It was there from holding the underlay in place whilst I fitted the liner!

    Good luck with the fill. Don t forget to put a gauge on the hose. To get accurate volume.
    For treating later on in life. Chuffed for you.

    20% of the fill took 2h15, a bit of maths tells me that it should be done by about 8:30/9:00 all being well!

    And slightly less exciting but just as important, the electrics are all done too, electrician just left. Blagdon PS5 with an isolator switch, and 2 standard sockets as back ups, or just for convenience if I ever need a 3 pin socket rather than having to wire into the PS5.
