Starting out again


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I spect some of you saw my post regarding wfp with back and next issues. I have another question if people would be kind enough for advice. If I do start up again and go down wfp route how would you suggest I go about it? Such as getting my gear and putting myself out there. I can do myself a small website in my spare time I was thinking and get it live when I have gear to take on work. Obviously I need gear before I can start. I have part time work at the mo so wouldn't be relying on window cleaning solely.


Any advice or suggestions much appreciated.

Cor blimey, where do you start? Get a TDS meter to test how soft or hard your water is first. Do you have a van you could put a DIY mount in or a car and use barrels?


My take on WFP; you go up and down side roads thinking you've cracked it equipment wise and find you've gone up the wrong road. It takes quite a while until you hit the motorway and suss it once and for all.


I started WFP from the boot of a Vauxhall Vectra. I had a trolley, a big heavy 30' fibreglass pole, 6 25L barrels and a DI vessel incase I ran out of water. The pole would sit over the seats, the DI would fall over and spill, the back wheels rubbed on the wheel arches, but I persevered. I got advice from mates and this forum and I think I'm pretty close to cracking it. After getting p1ssed off wrecking my car, I splashed out on a van and used a trolley from that, then got a better pole, then did a DIY van mount.


It's a long journey, but if you really want to do WFP, you will. Have a look through back posts on here, loads of info.


Think I waffled on enough, night night cnc :zzz:
