    Pretty much this.

    Big Boy Backpack is great. Some people have gripes with the lids. But i drilled a hole in mine to fill. So never gets taken off.

    A back pack for a "big commercial" ?

    How big is the casino?

    Do you have any equipment to purify the water?

    Do you Know the Tds of the local water ?

    Backpack
    Tds meter
    Purifying equipment
    Pole
    Barrels
    Etc etc... It ain't going to be "cheap" so hope the casino is regular or a big price

    IF the casino is BIG, has a water tap and the water is low enough then I'd just buy a di and a pole..

    I still have limited room for purified water in my vehicle (which I hope will be changing very soon). But I do this (what Belfast cleaning says) with the bigger houses that I clean. I just plug in a DI tank to their outside water supply, link up my extension hose, and put my pole and brush on the end. No trolley, back pack or anything else.

    Note: The TDS in my area is low enough to do this - i.e. just use a di tank, no RO or anything.

    So, to the outside tap I connect a short hozelock hose, which gets to my di tank. My extension hose connects to the 'out' side of the di tank, and my wfp connects to the end of my extension hose.

    Actually, my extension hose probably cost as much as a Big Boy back pack, so maybe it isn't the cheapest method, but you don't need to buy water containers, fill them, and hope that you have brought enough of them to the job.
