    Quick question guys.

    How much water do you use a day, as a one man team, and how many houses is that based on.

    Thanks

    So ideally a 450 tank is ideal?

    Will a car derived van like a corsa van, punto van physically fit these in??

    400lt i think is the magic number really.

    not to sure, i know some landrovers that have tanks in the back of them and they do well!

    Its ok thinking a car derived van is good but you have to think of the payload you can carry
    The punto van you can only get a 200 ltr tank in one of those .
    Id say vet a combo van as I have done I got a 350 tank in that .
    On an average days work I can use around 125 litres it just depends how generous you are qith the water
    I average around 9 litres use on a 3 bed thats with a squirt around then a scrub of glass and frames then a rinse off .

    depends on what you want out of your business, a car van i.e punto fiesta etc is not suitable for wfp work

    a combo van fiat doblo etc size van with 400l is good for 1 operators, the new fiat doblo has a 1000kg payload so can carry 600l easy
    as for using 125l a day what are you actually doing all day? using roughly 1 litre per minute your doing 2 hours on the glass window cleaning per day?

    best thing you can do is get a van capable of carrying 600 litres and set your goals high
