    cheap isnt always good, as you have to trust ur life with them! plus if you go for second hand one always give them a full inspection to make sure there are no dents or weak points to them.

    Make sure you know the 2005 WAHR law for ladder use,.. your insurance is technically invalid if you have an incident whilst operating outside the law,..

    I know its near impossible to be 100% ladderless,.. but starting out I'd reather see money spent on starter WFP gear than ladders. A cheap pole & backpack will get you started - you coud prob buy pure water off a local WFP guy until you have funds to get your own RO setup.

    I know too many ppl who have been injured (and heard of plenty more who have died) from ladder falls in this industry. :(

    dont buy second hand ladders, buddy, I would never do this.

    I use ladders4sale.co.uk and they are reasonably priced.

    lol, buy second hand ones mate, as long as you inspect them and their solid theres no problem with buying second hand ones, i got a double point set for a score a little while ago and they are just as safe as a brand new set. ebay, gumtree, local papers, bootsales, etc
