    Donny, yor wheely bin setup, you have water hose filling in top , are you feeding your pressure washer from the bottom of wheely bin with connector. this will save you having to feed from the 3metre suction hose in the top of bin. can you share with us numpties how this works and what conections i would need from a plumbers merchants, fittings etc to do a good set up. or have you just got the 3meter suction hose also going into top of bin also

    I have at top off wheelie bin
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Part-1-brass-1-2-ball-****-valve-high-pressure-and-Plastic-Float-/120993942480?pt=UK_DIY_Materials_Plumbing_MJ&hash=item1c2bcd0bd0
    and feeding the pump from the bottom off the wheelie bin
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/110727075698?var=410034387001&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
    connected by some 1" pipe too which ive jubileed a hozelock and just plug into the pump
    So YES i feed the pump from the bottom off the wheelie bin, i have an Interpump 15 lpm pump so needs a buffer tank, you will need a fitting on the pump too bleed the air out off , Terry at jetmac systems has them, you can see it in the pic on the pump with a black handle on it too open and close it, hope that helps Johnny

    headache., untill i see face on. give my brain a project., im not getting my washer untill end of march, got 4 jobs lined up, when i get wheely bin set up sorted, ill be green for go. so no matter what washer id use , youd still need a fitting to bleed air out of pump using this set up.
    is it not as easy to just throw 3 metre suction hose into top of bin and close lid. i mean for us just starting out., without adding anything to pump etc.
    thanks for your expertise advice as always Donny.
