    Hiya,

    I tend to use so much water and only have a small tank 350ltr was thinking of adding another 100ltr tank on top just for that bit extra. Saves going to do the odd 2 or 3 houses left in one road?

    Here's my current set up

    Errrm.....where? I don't see your current set up.

    My advice is fan jets tend to be more economical than pencil jets and fit some sort of inline tap to control on off water between windows if you haven't already done so.

    Don't think adding another tank 'on top' would be awful safe to be honest.

    Hmmm....100ltr tanks are quite expensive for what they are.....

    why not just carry 4 x 25ltr barrels in the van to top-up your main tank when needed.

    .....just make sure you secure the barrels to stop them moving/sliding about :thumbsup:.

    No need to buy the barrels Lewis....you can get the barrels for FREE from any car valeting place....just give them a good rinse-out.....ask for the ones which held shampoo/TFR etc as they're the easiest to clean.

    What van you got?
