Help :shy: Just bought my van this week, a Citroen dispatch. I'm looking to have a wfp system fitted for myself to work from, I live in a hard water area and need some advice as to what type of systems will be suitable for me.

I'll be starting off doing residential jobs and maybe looking at getting some industrial contracts if things go well in the future.

What sort of price should I be looking to pay?

I've spoken with Pure Freedom and they recommended me a complete set up ready to go and make some money for £3100

Has anyone used one of their systems and how would you rate it?

Any advice would be great thanks.

Knoxy.

To be honest...I've been fitting my own van system this weekend. I'm not very good at stuff like this (but it is working so I must be ok!) and never done anything like it before and I've managed fine.

Once you read up on what you need to do, I'm sure you could do it. Mine will be fitted out for less than £400...all new stuff (already have pole tho).

Worth reading up on.

Mate seriously have alook at mark m's videos in tutorials and tips on how to build tour own DIY system very informative and everything you need, plus a whole lot easier on the pocket.


As for the no idea u should post one question at a time and you will get them answered no problem at all.

Also the hard water area you are going to need a RO sysyem ( reverse osmosis) to soften the water up a bit before it hits your DI vessel.
Thankyou very much Paul

What Paul said, he's very knowledgable and helpfull. Pure Freedom systems are very good but obviously they do it for a hefty price tag. Do a DIY job. Saves you money and they work just as well.
