    So I'm just about at full capacity for my working day, but there's still a couple of hours I could work.
    I live in a rented terrace house, if I'm not home 3 ish I have parking issue's, as the street fills up my neighbours are good at leaving space but no one else gives a sh!€, my water flow is ridiculously bad, it takes 6/7 hours to fill a 350 litre tank. Had some good advice and opinions from Grippa tank, but the parking is the biggest problem.
    So I'm trying to find somewhere I could Park a bigger van and have it filled, parking spaces/drives are easy enough to come by but people don't want there water used even when I'v offered to pay there full water bill. (Anglian water meterd charge is £1.5138 per 1000 litres.) commercial lettings are silly money + rates etc. We're not in a position to move or buy at the moment. Any ideas?

    Ouch, what r/o you using, im di only but others on here may be able to help with speeding up filling with insight into your setup. Do any family live near you? My bro in law lives in a mid terrace and fills up at his mums or nans, and pays them for what he uses. He has been known to leave it on there drive and commute to his van in the past.

    Small holding tank? So water can be collecting through the day while you're out and then transfer pump to van quick time.

    I keep 400 litres in barrels + a couple of 25 l drums, for the odd day I'm not back in time to park.
