Back Pack

Hi

 

I work part time for a WC. He uses a WFP from a van and I do it traditionally. There are quite a few houses where we have to go over garages to get access to the back and it's a right pain to have to drag the hose over.

What we are thinking of doing is getting a WFP and backpack for me to use on the backs while he does the fronts.

As the backpack can only carry 16L what I would like to know is how many backs can I clean out of 1 fill? I realise that it is difficult to be accurate because of the number of windows etc but let's say your average 3 bed semi. Just a rough idea would be handy.

Thanks

NO NO NO!!

I used a backpack, I'd rather carry a hose across, I've had a bad back since, fully filled with 16 litres is not bad but up and down ladders and carrying a pole, you're better off carrying hose over.

We clean traditionally when we climb over 90% of garages.

You can get quite a lot cleaned though with 16litres, why not fill the tank with just 16litres or what not and see what you get done.

Well if I could get a few cleans out of a backpack then I could put less water in to reduce weight and make things easier. It's a question of trying to speed up the work.

If you are going over a garage, dont even think of carrying a backpack - really dangerous going up & down a ladder - I have tried it with mine, never again.

 

I do use a backpack to go through a handful of houses, otherwise my wife uses it on a sack truck, while I use a trolley.

In answer to the original question... I was talking to a back-pack user this week and he said, with an Aqua-dapter, he uses approx 11 litres per semi.

 

So for backs only he estimated 4-5 litres per house, roughly 3 backs of houses per refill of the backpack.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi. Yes, it all depends on the work. One of our customers has 600L+ tanks and 2 hose reels on his vans and he still takes 2 of our back packs with him for guys to use on certain jobs. But depending on the work you have/canvass you might not need them.
