    I would think you should get about 2 1/2 - 3 bed houses with your trolley and as soon as i finish a window the water is off

    35 litres, hmm. You may get 4 houses done providing you run your settings on low.

    I agree, should get 4 houses on a low setting. I leave water on whilst cleaning & rinsing, but turn it off via a tap which sits at my hip whenever the brush is not on a window. This is a must for trolley users trying to save water.

    if your useing a car get 25litre drums and fill them up with pure water and then refill the trolly when u need to simple

    first cleans will take longer then regular cleans fella so hard to tell

    how long u takeing per house
     
  7. yeah 35 litres should get you 4 houses - good question because we're facing a drought, so it is a good idea to not waste more water than needed.

    Just attach a di vessel on to your trolley so you can just keep topping up ? :)
