Does anybody operate with 3 men in 1 van with wfp? I’m thinking about bringing my cousin with us to help as he won’t be at school as off now. I’m currently running a waterworks system. Is the best option to get a trolley system for 3rd man ? Also how much extra water is ideal to carry for it ?

Yes we do on some of our bigger jobs I have all my vans with at least three pumps on them so we can all work independently, provided you have a big enough tank of water or supply to fill as you are working it’s good also remember that the batteries will need to be a higher amp hour due to the extra draw . 

We have 1000 ltr systems with three pumps on each , water wise it depends on flow rate , we generally fill as we are working on some larger jobs we use around 1500-2000 ltr per day with 3 guys per van but  that’s working on one site for  8 hours without moving and doing window after window with no tea breaks 😂😂

Do you use a trolley mate or all running of a main tank ?

With my set up I have two fixed reels in the van with floor roller system , I can also use free standing hoses as well or instead of the fixed if needed , I have on odd occasions run 6 reels from the three pumps , but one pump per hose works better , I have outlets under the bumper to connect free standing hoses to

We only did that a couple of times ,but yes it does  work but not efficiently enough it’s far better one pump one hose . With a booster pump fitted I can produce water faster than 6 reels working will use .

Why not just have a 2 man WFP team and a trad guy doing ground floor. He's never going to keep up with the other 2

I was also thinking this , but I would hate to offer that to customers that are fully wfp for them to rant on how good trad is 😂
