    If I bought a garage, would I be able to get a tap plumbed in? is a garage a good idea?

    Are there any other options? Can you set the RO up in your van? But I guess you still need an outside tap!

    Yes if you can run a pipe from your supply over your land.

    A garage would be nice :)

    Lots.

    Yes.

    Yes. Or a long hose and understanding house mates ;-)

    Have you any friends/family local where you could fill up.

    I would go D.I only, gt the biggest tank i could carry, and fill it from friends/family/custies or even using the pressure washer at a local garage.



    Another idea, pretty good one actually ;) is ask a local shop/restaurant/pub etc if you can use there outside tap to fill up a few times a week in exchange for cleaning there windows?

    No haven't got a van, but that would be a possibility in the future. The water in my area is too hard for just a DI. If I had a ground floor flat (but no garden), could I run a hose from my flat to an RO in a van?

    Could this be done if I rent/ get a garage?

    Girlfriend has a garden, could she be convinced to have an RO?

    I have been looking for a flat, but it's hard to find one with a garden which allows a big tank and storage place for tools.

    What is the best option from above?

    I like the question asking can your girlfriend be convinced to have an RO :)

    The Prob with ro is the time it takes and the waste water. If you can do it at your girlfriends, why not?

    Renting a garage with no tap, you can't put one in cause it's not your property.

    Sounds like you have no other options as you don't have a van or property with a tap.

    Hey Slippy, if you will transporting smaller amounts of water in a car then I would personally suggest doing trad & getting a WFP back pack system with some spare 25 litres in the boot.

    Use DI until you grow your round, get a van etc.

    I live in Brighton which is hard water and I use DI quite happily.

    Good luck with it all :thumbsup:

    Bournemouth. I can buy the water and use 25 litre barrels. £10 Just thought it would be more convenient if I had an RO. I guess a small shared garden or garage would be tricky with the waste water. Is it a case of getting own garden or convincing girlfriend? Go trad. Anyone take me out for a day to get more confident on ladders? I got one, but never felt super confident on them.

    Could I buy a garage for RO and storage? is this possible?
