      Camping coolers use the same method today, with a water absorbent material on the outside covered with perforated aluminum and plastic inside,

    A local as far out as Preston would be welcomed can transport it to them.

    With no valves on the pipework, it is classed as an 'hermetic system'
    You will need a line tap valve, recovery unit, cylinder and scales.
