    I would use that on a first clean . But after that yo should get 2 three bed semis with 25 litres . But everyone cleans different .

    Seems a bit excessive to me. I use my trolley about 3 times a day, and if I do a big three bedroom semi, there is always about a third of a 25 L drum left.

    Medium. My controller on the trolley is set at 50. Same for my van mount, except when using hot, then its 60 ( to make sure the pilot light ignites every time)

    I use 25l for between 2- 3 jobs
    Dependent on size but turning the water off between windows makes a big difference if you have a tap
