    Looking at ways to have two people pressure washing at the same time, just not sure the best way to go about it, could add a second washer but then you are going to run into water supply issues I would imagine.

    So do you then add a bowser and run both off the bowser while refilling it?

    Is there an easier way I am not thinking of?

    I'm sure you've already thought of it, but would you not just be better off spending the cash on a very good quality pressure washer, if you haven't got one already? You could also do the moving plant pots, sweeping water, and using a gutter vac to suck up the water. At least that's how I would probably do it. There's plenty of work for a second person if you look for it. Even while you are packing up, the good lady could be clean the windows.

    All depends on the kind of jobs you are going for obviously.

    We already have a 21lpm machine with 21" rotary etc etc etc

    But we get some really large jobs and would be so much faster with two machines running, we do find bits and bobs to do, sweeping, moving stuff etc but often we are doing the "come on my go" routine as we end up with a fair bit of downtime waiting for your next go.

    So just thinking of buying another and knocking the jobs out really quick. Always have a spare then if one breaks down or something.

    Do you have your own water supply on board or use customers tap? As 2 machines would clear through the water fast

    What about just sending your wife off in the van to some other work, and she just pick you up when done? Depends how much of this work you are getting in as to whether it's worth buying a browser.

    Do it alone most of the time, up until recently anyway.
