    Ok well start with a tank,

    Then hose, pump, battery and a controller, just add bits as you get the funds,

    Here's a pic of mine, I bought all second hand bits and diy'd it:

    It's fairly simple really mate, once you've got the parts it's quite simple to put together, the basics are in the close up picture of my hose battery etc,

    You can add a one shot remote (starts and stops water at touch of a button) at a later date, or any other such things...

    Shurflo 100psi pump is the standard,

    Pure freedom hose reel and hose - just plain and simple, does the job well,

    A leisure battery, halfords or anything like that..

    A baffled tank (eBay)

    Pure freedom controller, or similar (this is to turn on and off water, and also change the speed/flow of water from pump)

    That's pretty much the basics...

    Nice work Jake. . Can I ask what you've used to coat your floor and sides of your van? I've been looking to fibreglass my floor, but it's gonna be too costly, so I'm gonna treat it with a waterproof coating instead. Just wondered what you used mate?
