    the 21 lpm , you should consider getting a 30 meter hose instead of the 10m that comes with it and it will save the trouble of having to move the washer around a job

    Yeah longer hose is on the list, I have a 20m here already and a 10m.

    10m sounds a lot but in practice is near useless lol.

    My only concern with the 21 is if a domestic supply can keep up? I worry I might end up working slower having to wait for water all the time?

    Another possibly stupid concern is, speeding up the work might make it look like the customer isn't getting value for money lol.

    You are not going to be that quick even using a 21lpm washer so no need to worry as you would just take your time.

    I really suck at taking my time, I work hard and non stop until its done, can't help myself, tried several times to slow down and take it steady, never works.

    You just have to remember not matter how long it takes you are getting paid to do a good job.
    So if it takes less time with a 21 lpm washer instead of a 12lpm washer it don't matter as long as the customer is happy with the results. They are paying for good results not how long it may or may not take you.
