    You can do my conservatory next time for £10 if you want? that's way to cheap. I think after you have done the job you might change your pricing structure. Well done on getting the new customers, that's a good 2hrs.

    thats really good sounds like 2 hours well spent=)

    how much are you charging for the house.

    and how much does it cost to purify the water per litre and how much would you use each house?

    Yeah well done pal, you keep getting about 7 customers a week you'll have over 350, by the end of the year. Hardest bit now is keeping at it after you go out a couple of times and get none. You will get little dry pockets like that but don't let it bother you, its just as valuable to know where the work isn't.
