    Been looking into this for weeks now and got to the point where I am confusing myself the more I look.

    Not long started window cleaning, but am serious about it and can really see the advantage of doing it with WFP, but really can't afford £800+ to buy a complete system.

    What is the cheapest way to get into WFP? happy to buy second hand, I am good at DIY, have access to a welder etc, not scared to build it myself.

    Any and all advice most welcome, thanks.

    I got a second hand 400 l tank on ebay but i started with a backpack and a cheap pole. In fact it was a free pole as i picked it up on the street. Buy a 200 gpd ro di system as they will last years. Mine is 3 years old and it fine for me and i use 200 to 300 l a day. Icb tanks are cheap as well but not on ebay you need to google it

    200 gpd not a bit overkill?

    Even cheaper is 100 gpd about £90 on ebay , and that will give you 0 tds , get a cheap water butt from a garden centre and that's your water sorted
    Actually on ebay you can get a trolley ro and 25 ft pole for around £450

    That's American gallons which is less than English , and a day refers to 24 hour so if you want to leave it on overnight that would only produce about 80 -90 ltr
     
  6. eBay. Watch......wait.........pounce!!!!!

    There's a trolley with pump, drums and pole.
    It's at £5 at the moment!!!
    You'd need Di vessel and maybe ro too.
    I'd link you to it but I'm a bit ****.

    I would just leave it running all the time I would think? figure I would have multiple containers, overflowing into each other?

    Just bear in mind that the cheap water purifiers produce 4 times more waist than they produce pure, leaving it running is totally fine but not advisable if your on a water meter
