    What size tank have you got as that's going to produce quite a lot of water pretty fast.

    He has an established round, so he will eventually be using around 350 to 500 liters of water a day when all his customers are converted like each of us do.

    I would certainly count on that and buy a system that will easily keep up with that water usage. A 4040 will do that easily. I think that most of us have to admit to starting off with an R/O system that very quickly became too small. It stifles your business if you aren't producing sufficient water to finish a day's work.

    I would go van mount straight away. We have also found from experience that a single operator has enough water for most days work if his van is fitted with a 500 liter tank. Most days the boys will only use 350 - 400 liters but on occasion they do use it all.

    Trolleys are portable but a van mount is less hassle. No 25 liter drums of water to mess on with. A friend of mine bought a PureFreedom trolley to use with his car when his van was written off and was waiting for the insurance company to sort it out.

    Within a few days he left it in the car with his drums and used his hose reel. Couldn't handle lifting and lugging 25 liter drums about.

    If you need the convenience of a portable system on occasion, then something like a Gardiner's backpack that can be carried with the handle is ideal.
