    was cleaning a big house this morning and I have to be honest, I was scared.... My ladder was stable overall but it was wobbling a bit maybe is because I gained weight lately

    Can someone give me an estimate on how much might cost me roughly to convert? I want a 500 litre water tank and RO system with other usual equipment. My van is 2008 Ford transit Van SWB. I remember I spoke to Broadex almost 2 years ago and they told they can do for £3850 or something like that and I thought it was bit too much. I will need a trolley system as well.

    Don't go with brodex firstly.

    Secondly it will really depend if you want to go get a system of the shelf and fitted so to speak or doo it yourself. The later being much cheaper.

    £3250.

    500L plumbed up for 2 man RO & DI system

    Includes one reel and 18ft carbon pole. Split charge relay and one shot controller as well as gas hot water unit.

    And I will throw in the van for that money! :))

    (Yes im selling my van)

    As for just a system shop about a bit. Try cleaning warehouse in Wolverhampton. You will get sorted for £2k i reckon.

    Why do you want a trolley?

    its always a sticky question this one,the first thing i'd ask is whats your tds? this determines if you should be going down the ro route or just di only.
    ro's are expensive and if you intend to be useing 500l per day you'd be wiser to purchase a 40/40 membrane.
    as for stystems sometimes good second hand ones come up for sale and present a massive saving over new
    (i've just sold a pure freedom 650l with hot water for £450)even trollies can be diy'd or bought s/h
