Just wanted to post a pic of my new FSD 4" Pot. Clean as a whistle and ran like a breeze on her maiden run.

Thank you for all the help and advice Andrew, 5 star service :clap: . The brass fittings for the cooling line and the sealant you gave me worked an absolute treat!

Zero leaks and best of all no thread tape required :handgestures-thumbupleft:


Hi Georgio, what do you connect it to water wise? just the garden hose...? looks like a brass hose fitting on the flexable pipe..

and if so are you happy running it that way? cheers mate looking to do something similar

G'day Dom,

Using brass hose fittings from bunnings and flexi hose. Running off mains water and out on to the lawn and garden bed out back.

Runs perfectly.

Are you making your own or running 5star gear?

I will be purchasing a 4"modular pot from 5 star aswell. I reckon I will do the same water setup. mine will be fitted to a t500 boiler until I can purchase a milk can.

do you have the hose running pretty fast? or just trickling through?

Cheers Dom

Not that fast mate. Just enough to make sure the condensor stays cool to the touch.
