    Hi guys some advice needed if possible. I have the wheelie bin for a buffer tank, I have a float valve to fit to the top of wheelie bin from water tap. What connections do I need to the pressure washer does it just sit in the bin and draw the water or do I need another connection for this from the bottom of the bin ?
    Sorry if this is a dumb **** question but I'm new to pressure washing.
    Regards
    Phillip

    This is how I went about it.
    Core a hole then Ptfe tape the thread,make sure all washers and what not are on .
    Unfortunately the thread on the ball valve was to small or big for my standard hose conector,so had to bung on an adapter.
    Good luck.

    Phillip, if you have a draw up hose for your washer, then you just drop that in. You don't need a fitting in the bin to feed the washer.

    Phillip, it's still a great idea to fit the ball ****, I learned this on hear.
    Saves so much time running back and forward to the tap on biger jobs.
    Good luck.

    You might need a 'weight' on the end of your sucker pipe as sometimes it drifts up the bin. I use a small plastic dumbell bungeed to the end filter
