    Hi people me again.
    I have a 650ltr tank and only using a pressure of 35 but the water seems to be disappearing fast!

    I have checked for leaks there are none I'm at a loss as i thought it would last a lot longer with only myself using it and not doing big jobs.

    Any ideas?

    Rinsing too much? I've nearly ran out of 500L twice this week. Some say £1 earned per litre used, not so here.

    Been glad to mix some trad work in to save on the water a bit :thumbsup:

    Yeh I've heard that maybe that's it then first clean with the pole you need to rinse thoroughly though.

    Hope it's only for the first clean haha!

    I could be wrong but the warmer it gets the faster my water seems to go compared to colder days.

    Try dropping your flow a bit, for normal cleans ie jobs that I have got to good standard and are cleaning on a 4 weekly I run mine at 24. If its a first clean then I will go up to 26/30 depending how bad they are

    Interesting Shiny, I set mine at about 40, 50 plus for mingers. Personally I don't think you could create a wall of water with 24, I struggle with 40 but think stuff it, I aint wasting too much water on you Mrs. A mate of mine has his set to 27. Rinsing is my OCD :confused:

    I'm at 32 (about 1L/min)
    You want to rinse the glass & not power wash it & splash the dirt about the window.

    Its my first week using WFP. Ive got a trolley system and have had the pump on between 40 and 50. Havent run out of water so far but having read this perhaps I should turn it down a bit. Are the pumps on trolley systems different from van mount ones?
