    Anyone thinking of going wfp, be warned you will need spares as a breakage will cost you money in more ways than just replacing the broken part. Here is my parts bin so you can get a rough idea how much you need.

    The little tuppleware tub is my first aid kit with plasters etc.
    Hope this gives some idea of what you may need to buy over time, its took me a while to build this up

    Yep, tools are a must. The main thing I need to fix on the job is cutting and re-fixing the pole hose near the jubilee clip when it splits. Dodging a fine spray of water is no fun :thumbsdown:
