    Over last cpl of months Iv picked up a hell of a lot of terraced house were its hard work gettin to backs. At moment I'm having to drive van down awkward back streets thts time consuming. In certain streets I have like 4 or 5 fronts and maybe 2 of those I have to do the backs
    I'm thinking along lines of getting a pack pack for lad who I have working with me to use to go do backs of terraced while I do front. Just not sure if that's way to go as I'm thinking it will be time consuming having to fill up all time so maybe I won't actually be saving any time on what I already do..
    Suggestions folks would be great

    at the bottom of tank where the water comes out put a tee in, so one pipe goes to pump and the other goes for draining filling up backpacks etc

    I bought a backpack was not sure about it as i have had tucker van system and also a trolley...... but thougt i would give one a go...

    This is the one i bought from full clean centre

    anyway its a great piece of kit i have put it on a sack barrow and its a lot lighter and easier than the trolley i had and easier than reeling in all that hose...
