    Hi i have been on ladders for about 4 months and have about (100 regular customers not a lot yet)
    I have looked at poles and other equipment but still can't work out what setup i need
    I tested my water and reads 365ppm (hard)
    The setup i think i want is have a reverse osmosis system from my outside tap in a shed then have 3 water butts next to it so the water goes through the system then somehow get the water from the system to the water butts?
    after i have my filtered water i need to get it into the van so i will have a 200l container in the van whats the best way for me to get the water into the container ?
    Any links for prices and websites would be great help!
    i want to spend roughly ££1500 for the setup (everything)

    hi jordan I use water butts got three 680l in total , £32 each homebase but I wish I spent that extra and went for IBC tank 1000l
    this would be easier.Them butts bottom taps keep knocking open water every where right pain.
    transfering your water into your tank I use pump drops in your tank switch your power on hayho inch&half hose empties
    220l water three mins tops. your RO will have hose connected for your pure goes straught into your butts

    You need a 200 gpd ro di system to make pure water. Also get some virgin resin. A 1000 l Icb tank, don't bother with starting with a smaller one I tried it and it's a royal pain...

    You need a pole. Carbon fibre is the best. A 22 or 25 foot is recommended. If money is a issue then start with a 25 foot fibreglass one.

    You will need a transfer pump and a tank in the van or car. 200 or 400 l and to run the system in the car/van buy a 100 psi pump and controller kit. You can get them as a set so do that it's easy to setup. Oh and a leisure battery to run them. Also get a battery charger to charge once a week. I would recommend the gardiner metal hose reel and 100m of hose. I wasted money on a cheap reel and its cost me...
