Re: [IPk] Pump Cool Packs



First things first - The Pump manufacturers have had nothing to do with my
decision to stock these things - there's no corporate plot to part you with
your money. It's just li'l old me (AMT) responding to concerns which have
been expressed about high temperatures etc. I don't know all the answers,
but it strikes me that if there is a potential problem, and a simple
solution, then why not!

With respect to the question of cooling and heating of the pump, then this
should not be an issue. The whole function of these things is to keep an
even temperature. It is easy to see a very dramatic change in temp,
especially in the UK, when you move from sun to shadow. So in any instance
the cool packs will minimise this not exacerbate it.

Any one who wants to find out more about the principle behind these should
visit www.friouk.com who developed the system in the first place.
