    Hi all, a newbie and was looking at getting a van with a WFT system in to do along side trad cleaning. Done a little research and read a few posts on here. Got a max budget of £1000 for set up any ideas on places to shop and what equipment don't know where to start. Won't need a massive tank maybe a 350l one as still doing mainly trad way.
    Cheers Paul

    my advice would be get biggest tank ya can, as once ya start doin wfp method youll more likely go to that more than trad way. and as round groes youll be ready equipped,,get all ya stuff off ebay and build ya own system for about a grand,,

    Is your budget of 1k just for the system or van and system??
    Depends on the quality you want as your van will be your initial expense. If your on your own, for now i'd get a 350 tank in a berlingo type van.
    The pump you can get from here : http://www.johnhewitt.com/pumps.htm
    If you get the fl series, 2202a pump you shouldnt need a controller as the flow is low.
    Get a car battery from a scrappy to run it.
    Secong hand hose reel (from forum or ebay) and convert a harris pole.
    Get a cheap r.o from somewhere like: https://collinswaterproducts.co.uk/product_info.php?cPath=111&products_id=151&osCsid=ad830960262116d981694407d9daee52 And have it producing into a 1000 litre ibc tank (ebay) while you work. Get a submersible pump (machine mart) and hose to transfer the water from tank to van tank
    It would mean putting together yourself (not as hard as some may think) but its a cheap way to start up and you can upgrade as you go....

    Pure freedom diy system......

    u really cant go wrong

    I got a combo with full system in it and ibc tank off ebay for a grand......

    6 months later sold van for 600 and put system in newer van.

    3 years later still working fine..... I have upgraded 250l tank for an upright 350l.



    Great for starting out.
