    So just for argument sake you have two windies that want to fill there vans every night. One has a 400 ltr tank the other a 600 ltr tank.

    First question is could you supply enough pure water for the demand which is not that great?

    Second question do you think it would be worth the hassle to have 2 extra vans turn up to be refilled each day?

    Third question do you think making an extra few quid would be worth it as your water usage would go up?

    Some sell pure water as cheap as £25 per 1000 ltr... after all it only costs pence to make.

    Just because you've seen it for sale, doesn't mean its selling. Also be careful of your neighbours, if they start seeing vans turning up and buying it on a regular basis they could end up complaining to the council and putting the kybosh on it, unless you have the right to run a business off your premises. To me, it doesn't seem like its worth the bother.

    I'm aware of window cleaning firms selling pure water but the ones I know of sell it from business units. I guess they have a large setup that can produce very large amounts of pure water than they actualy need.

    I know a lad who sells 1000 ltr for £75!!!! But not sure how true that is as he's one of them who tells you how much he earns like a bragging right, from my experience those types of windy's usually talk out of their harris lol

    I recently cleaned for a very posh customer (a house which always has 3 gardeners around :) ) and she asked me if I can give her some water for ironing and how much it will be - i said I won't charge you for the water - thinking that she needs 5L - 10 L ?! may be ..... Next time I will ask as I ended up filling her four 25L drums and a pile of 5L ones lol it was about 165 L all together - took me an hour to fill them

    Yes for free ....
