    Forget what every body else say they use. Some use less water because they don't rinse properly. Their standards can be different to yours. If you are happy with the end result and more importantly, if your customers are happy with your standards, then nothing else matters.
    When both of us work together, 1 with back pack and me with a hose reel, we can use around 400 liters per day in the winter. On a commercial job we will use around 650 to 900 liters, depending on the circumstances as we would have both hose reels on the go. (We will go home for lunch and refill the van.)

    Sh*t the bed. I use between 300 - 350 litre for around say 20 3 bed semi's. I am new at this so maybe over doing it on the rinsing.

    I use about 150-200 litres a day for 15-20 houses a day but i trad bottoms on certain jobs to conserve water as working from a car at the moment
    Average 3 bed semi maintenance clean would be around 2 houses per 25l barrel if i do it purely wfp
