How much water on a normal day?

Recommended Posts

Dansri

How much do you all use on a average day on a wfp system? and how many houses would you say that covers? Just trying to get an rough idea how much water needs to be taken out each day. Im sure it depends on many factors and its like asking how long is a pices of string, but any help on this matter will help. Just looking into wfp.

 

thanks

I fill my my 500L tank every night, plus two 50L barrels for emergencies. Never run out yet, but have come close. Trial and error is the key to it all. My advice is always take your maximum capacity of water out with you, you never know when you'll need more ;)

I often use anything between 200 - 600 ltr of pure on one house. Mind you that's not just cleaning the windows.

To be honest I try to carry as much pure water in the van as I can as like you say if you haven't got it you’re scuppered and I would be back to hand jobs & trad that I hate with a passion compared to wfp work now.

That reminds me I must get sorted an onboard 4040 ro/di setup in the van as the type of work I do I could produce pure water on-site on demand that is if the customers have an outside tap.

I started off with a pf trolley and it did my head in humping around water containers so I understand where you are coming from.

I don't know what flow rate it comes out. I am not sure how to find out. as I just have a switch which I turn to 25past, There is nothing on my ionics system where it tells me.

Just under half way then so roughly about 2 lpm assuming you're using a 5lpm pump :thumbsup:

Yep Im geting a bit fed up with it. Took my hose out to the car to fill my containers up in the car via di, stupid hose fell out twice and scooshed the car, and myself trying to control it. may get microbore reel and use this at the detached houses and leave trolley in the car.

Or maybe get an old van or even a trailer so it doesn’t matter if it gets flooded or not.
