RE: [IPk] Swimming/bathing without pump

Hi Nigel

You sound like me, I used to always be taking things apart to see how they
worked.  Sadly I dont seem to have time to investigate things like I used to
(husband sighs in relief) though I did manage to mend our automatic garage door
the other day after investigating various bits. It had been jamming for 6
months.    So its good there are people like you and me to take things apart.


PS dont try it with the pump though!
