    Been using the pole system for 7 weeks now after 30 years trad. My work is every three weeks. I find I am using a 25l barrel for every three four bedroom detached houses on a flow rate setting of 16. All my customers seem happy, yet I keep reading that a barrel should only last 2 houses. Do you think I am not using enough water.

    Your post should end with a question mark and not a full stop.

    Benefits. Not so tired, quicker now I'm used to it, and much better results on leaded.
    Drawbacks. Aching arms and back.
    Mind the aches are getting less each week.

    The backs probably down to old age.
    Plus trying to get my day in too quickly, to get home to the grand kids.
