Sorry, one reason.

I'm sure there's ways around that though.

I am wanting to place an order with 5 Star to support them. I have emailed several times over a 3 month period but no reply. Is it worth ringing them or should I go elsewhere?

Hi Guys,

I have my pot still order in and looking forward to putting it to hard work.
I’m also looking to building a keg boiler though I keep looking at the element cost which appears (on the surface) 3 Times the cost of the LHBS. Am I missing something here?

Different elements. I had that thought initially too.

FSD elements are better quality!

The elements themselves arent that much more expensive. The element guard really adds to the cost. But for ease use it more than makes up for cost.

As the old saying goes "Buy quality, buy once" :handgestures-thumbupleft:

And yes, I found no response via email - Phone calls work better.
