    Just had a quote for a full working WFP trolley system , including RO,DI,pole etc. Please see below and let me know your thoughts

    Trolley with 25l drum, charger, pump,LCD flow regulator etc
    4x 25L Drums for storage
    TDS Meter
    200 GPD RO Unit
    10 " DI Housing c/w bracket and resin
    Brush 12" Vikan oblong F
    Pole valve
    20 meter extention hose
    17ft pole

    Total 894.31

    I have tried it, seems real easy to use and light.

    Any thought on the price and whether you feel its value for money .

    Cheers.Mike

    Hey, even if people say it's expensive, if you're happy then that's the main thing. Plus if you paid £100 too much, doing your job wfp, you'll soon recoup it.

    Hi Tuffers, im thinking about this very hard. Im not getting any younger and I think a mixuture of trad and wfp would suit me fine.
    I would really like to know , on average.how many litres would it take to clean an average 3 bed house using wfp.

    Mike, I'd get more containers if I were you. You will find that you will want to do the cleans wfp once you get into it as it's so much quicker and easier. To do an average 3 bed I'd say 12L with the pump on 50/60. Saying that, I've got some mansions and can do them in half an hour using 25L.
