    Copper certainly is the future just as it was the past. Future tax on plastics will bring about a renaissance in copper. The manufacturers I know are already gearing up for it. Rob Foster

    Had a right job with It. Got the boards up and spotted two holes so repaired them pressurised the system and still jetting out elsewhere ended up with five holes and was slightly expecting a nip putting me hands under . I reckon there's a bever about.
