    How much would DIY cost and how much for a set up from say a store or company for a WFP system not including the van of course but including the following: tank, fittings, brushes, poles, battery's, hose etc etc, if anyone has a FULL list for what is needed for WFP system.

    Cheers guys!!!!

    i got a 400l tank on ebay for £100, the pump and digital controller was £169, my pole was also on ebay for £70, another £100 for hose reel and some microbore hose, 40 m but I am going to get another 60 Meters. my 1000l icb tank cost £20 (really cheap at a company at dartford)

    my transfer pump and 2 x 3 ton straps and transfer pipe cost about £100.
