Recommended Posts

Hi peeps

Got 750 quid to spend..was goimg to get more ladders etc but thinking I could kit out my astra with a wfp setup to go with my trad gear I already have

I really fancy a bit of stick waggling and getting off the ladders

Any advice/instructions etc

Haven't got ro or anything yet

Most who go down the wfp backpack or trolley route will eventually end up with a decent size van. If like me they soon find out they need to carry more water about so to overcome payload issues and a diy van set up makes the job so much easier too.

It will be eventually going in a van but I will need it in my car for a few months..while the council is giving me a £750 grant to start up I may as well get it going then move to a van when I can afford one

I don't know where to start with wfp but want to get working with it asap

Was getting ankalad etc but decided wfp is the way to go

I need to give council a list of stuff with prices for everything I need then they will approve it and reimburse me for that stuff as I buy it..only have one month to spend it once approved

So I need to find out everything I need asap

The reason why I bought a pure freedom trolley as it has the same decent components you would find on any decent van system. Not only that can either be used static in a van aswell just by dropping in the inlet hose into a tank instead. I got feedup with humping the trolley and water about very quickly so when I got a cheap van all I bought extra was a van tank & hose reel. My ro/di system is setup static in the garden so all I do is transfer water to the tanks in the van.


What every you do don't be tempted to buy a trolley with chepo components also with a fixed tank if you intend to use it later static in a van.

Was looking at their systems and their diy setup


just finished my list of stuff

Ladder wise it is a lyte 3 section 8+ metre


And ankalad standoff

Not seen them before but 50 quid I will give it a go

That adds up to about 300 without materials tools etc

Can you think of anything else that would be handy equipment wise?
