    Feed from tanks? You mean buffer tanks - not the window cleaning tank right?

    Just checking!

    There's loads to choose from mate, but basically you need a minimum of 15lpm and 3000psi...

    Jetmac - good prices pretty good machines (I have one and so does Diwrnach)

    Rutland pumps - bit expensive but very well made

    Qwashers - also very good can be expensive,

    If it's an add on service, go with jetmac, you can't be price vs quality with them,

    If it's gonna get heavy heavy use go with Rutland pumps,

    I've been really pleased with my jetmac so can vouch for them, but I also hear good things about the other two listed!

    The choice is yours!

    My 21lpm Loncin from Jetmac has been incredible, only got it this year but it has worked very, very hard in a short time and been spot on.
