    Nice one ;)

    I was also wondering if you use a filter inside the bin but guess not.

    What the customers are you thinking?

    If so then yes most I have seen will be full of **** and some will not have one. Also the washer would have to be close by to it so not that practical really. But thinking out of the box nowdays everyone has a council wheelie bin so the worst senorio would be to ask them if you could clean it out using a hose pipe then use it as a buffer tank. Just throw the inlet pipe to the washer and hose connected to an outside tap let if fill then away you go. Not ideal but would save you lugging a wheelie bin about in the van/car yourself. :D

    When using a professional pressure washer with a pump of 3000 psi or more and a flow rate 15 lpm or greater you need to supply enough water to the washer as the demand is greater than a tap can provide (approx 8 lpm depending on mains pressure) to be able to work efficiently. Hence why washers of that size need a buffer tank of some sorts to draw/suck enough water in for the demand of the pump.

    When setting up the washer you would connect a hose from an outside tap to fill the wheelie bin then attach the intake hose to the pump of the washer. Then would need to keep the tap hose on all the time so keeps it filling while you work. Depends what length of pressure washer hose you use if you would then need to move the washer and bin about once setup. It is common practice to use a 220 ltr wheelie bin for this purpose as it has wheels on.

    Hope this helps?

    I also might be thick but seems a bit of a strange idea to me, guys round me have a tank in either a van or trailer and I think filter the water back into the tank to re-use.

    Mosmatic do fsc' with vac port to suck the water up but you need a roots type blower that is powerful enough for continues use an electric vacs would not last very long. Also would need a filtration system to filter the water back into the holding tank so that sort of setup would cost a fortune to buy.

    This trailer rig would nicely :D
