    right been using my diy wagga inspired trolley for a year now and have got my self a small round going as a add on to my pressure washing and mobile car valeting. i am just about fed up with lugging 25ltr containers around from filling them at home to carting them about on the job(and im sure they know to run out when your as far from the van as possible!!) So it leads me to a trailer as in the back of my berlingo i have all my valeting stuff and as its not going to be my main income having it in a trailer would be handy enough for me.

    im looking for input of what i will need to do it ie; what flow controller, pump, battery is best and should i go for a hot setup?

    Use your trolley as a static?

    its just a 9ah battery and a cheapo pump didnt think it would manage to pump it all day and the pump wouldnt take the hammering.

    How big a tank do you need? What can your berlingo pull? I have a diy trailer set up works brilliantly

    You say you have a 800 ltr bowser trailer already for pressure washing so could you not use that for pure water aswell?
