I was in need of some more de-ionised water after boiling off a couple of batteries while recovering them, got a big bottle from ECP last month for under 20 but they mentioned they don't always carry them in stock.

So today i checked stock online and saw they have the 5L bottles for 2.29 (instead of 6.84, 67% off) and there is an "end of month" voucher code "sale30" valid till midnight, bringing it down to 1.60 for 5L

Free delivery over a tenner too. I've ordered <ahem> enough to see me through reviving my traction cells.

Stevie,
           That is tres cheap,,and free delivery. One time I got caught out and had none in store, I ended up paying 64euros for 50ltrs. I had no choice.
 Now a day, I collect some 60 ltrs in 5ltr jars absolutely free every month. I also giver it out free ("sometimes").

Barstewards, it was a great price Stevieboy until they added delivery onto it, by that time it was just almost as cheap to get it from my regular supplier, feckin sick of this  fume I didn't even give them my home address, gave them one on the mainland, feckin store is in Inverness which is in the Highlands so why do the feckers charge more for delivering locally  banghead It's actually easier to handle in 5lt containers but I'm no giving them my money  fume I use about 10lts a month so go through a lot of the stuff.

Cheers, Paul

I buy (collect) 25 ltr at a time ( 1 drum) for 9.98 from my local independent motor factors.  Never paid over a tenner yet and I guess the supplier is still making a profit.

I find sainsburys are normally the cheapest at 1 for 2.5 litres.

We but tons of it, small quantities for the batteries and loads for SWMBO for her ironing station.
