    Ok so had 1st cleans today on 3, 6 bed detached houses. Alot alot alot glass and upvc.

    I'm only backpack and my goodness it nearly killed me keep fulling up and running out etc plus tangled hose etc ect.

    I currently have a 350 ltr tank in the van. What do I need to go van mount. Honestly lost a good 45 minutes filling up today. Pain in the butt.

    Hose reel and hose. Where from?

    A pump ?

    What else

    Cheers guys

    Van mount and backpack both have advantages and disadvantages
    More water on tap is good with van mount for new cleans but hose management is a lot easier with a backpack

    It's the filling up that pissed me off. Especially if you have a big place to clean

    Back pack is great and has its place no doubt.

    Tomorrow I have 4 terraced houses in a row. All 1st cleans there rank.

    The road is about 30 meters away from the first house. Just a pain refilling on this sort of stuff.

    Does the tank just plug into the pump then pump to reel ?

    I really have no idea sorry.

    That's part of why I just went backpack.

    Thanks
