    i think we are between £40-£50

    i dont work it out weekly... i work it out monthly

    Spend 80 quid every 5 weeks on resin
    then if something goes wrong u gotta buy bits and bobs....

    to be honest it doesnt cost much to run wfp.... not if your using a ro........ or if your ppm is low and your using a di...... all depends on how you purify your water :)

    u gotta look at your van costs more os running the van is the most expensivest part we got MOT, Tax , Insurance , Petrol N Maintenance to pay for thats were all the money goes mate lol

    My system costs me approx £10 per month.. I'm on di only with tds reading 042...

    Even if you need a full ro system the costs will be quite low although will cost more to set up..

    Murphy, are you talking in comparision to using ladders? Because if you are then taking the running costs of a van are irrelivent as you would still have these. Also are you on a water meter? I'm lucky an am not, so that is a big saving. My costs for WFP have been new pre filters every six months, I'm still on the same RO which is 2.5 years old. So I have spent £100 on filters over 2.5 years, so that is 77p a week. My water comes out low enough of my RO not to need resin.

    Ive got a 650ltr Ro, every tank of water costs about 6quid but i can do about £250 per day on my own in the van so its well worth it.
    Its twice as quick as a traditional.

    Another few years and there will be no suck thing as a traditional window cleaner. WFP the future.

    If on a water meter the 300 tank works out about £10 a day i think.You can get the water people to put a meter on it, so you know what is home/business use

    Salt monthly for me is £10

    I have filters that need changing as and when, you could probably say a couple of hundred a year for this.
