    I use a trolley system and most of the time I can get almost 2 houses out of a 25ltr bottle. I generally carry around 5-6 bottles at any one time and can do a full days work with this (sometimes I may need a top up which I go to an aquatics centre to get)

    The only downside is if you are having to go into peoples back gardens and they are messy Swear word!s you sometimes have to take the trolley apart to carry it over dog ****/bin bags/broken bikes etc. Might be worth looking at a back pack also

    Its your decision dude, but i couldnt be bothered with a trolley system. Dont get me wrong, i can see its advantages, but as far as im concerned, the drawbacks far outweigh the plus points. Maybe a trolley, or backback system, in combination with a van system, but not a trolley on its own. I run a 500l system, and my round is pretty well spread out. I would say on an average day i use between 350-425 litres, can you imagine what a monumental pain in the a**e that would be with a trolley system!. Obviously different windy's in different situations will have different opinions on this, especially if thet are trad and wfp (im wfp only) but that's mine!.

    Get a van then mate. 200ltrs would kill your suspension if its in the boot. With regards to costs, you can do it relatively cheap if you know what you are doing and not getting the whole kit from a cleaning company

    no what ur sayin mate but have to keep the car - never thought of suspension.... Its trolley for me i think... Its 800 all in for one at a company near me that use gardiners poles etc - seems to be best deal. Guy told me just to get spare container frm carwash place etc instead of buying new ones..

    Also the pureify water business is it as easy as running tap thru resin and that is....

    I paid half of that price for my Bayersan Trolley mate and it works fine. Got the containers from a car parts place with DI water in them. Paid about 8 quid each. With regards to refills. Just did a deal with a tropical fish place nearby to me and pay £2 for a 25l fill. Was getting cheaper from an industrial window cleaners locally but no receipts so was having to lose £30 to the tax man
