    tank 500lt
    a large van, you will soon fill it up transit / traffic
    if you got money 40/40 but it depends on ppm a di vessel might be good enough

    Depends of your pure water usage to what size tank you would need. The size/weight of the tank when full will also be a deciding factor to the size/gross kg rating of van you would need.

    If you can afford it buy a transit type size van. largest van mount system/tank that would fit (upto 1000ltr) that way you will save money long term by not having to upgrade a smaller van or tank as your business grows. Simples....

    Again if money is no object gardiner wfp kit is about the best you can get. Also 4040 static & van mounted RO's

    400ltrs is enough for a heavy one man day and the later berlingo's look to have good payload but some of the earlier ones are only 600 kilos so could be very marginal. Size of van is to some extent determined by the geography of your area, tight roads, narrow gateways dictate a smaller van.

    It depends on how much work you have. I have a 650lt in my vivaro, but I have 4 full weeks of work each month.

    Ever had it weighed Harunh? 350ilts of water, the weight of the tank and fittings, DI cannister, hosereel, poles, ladders, all the other **** that we tend to carry and allow say 100kgs for yourself. (more for me) It wouldn't be hard to exceed 600kgs.
