    You are using more because you are doing first cleans. Once you get tuned in you will find that 350 liters will get you through the day.

    Just stick with doing your first cleans. If you finish early because you have no water then go home, rest and enjoy the weather whilst it lasts.

    You might get some 25 liters barrels from a car wash and use 4 of those to top up your tank. That will give you 450 liters.

    As spruce said, 350 is plenty . If your struggling with that get a tank at home and fast fill from that.

    a few barrels would be the cheapest way.

    sell your 350 tank, take tap out and get a 500 litre upright from pure freedom , ebay, cheapest, free delivery.
    you dont have to fill to top every time, but its there when you need it, look on ebay for the 500 tank
