Look through the posts been covered so much recently. Lots of help there. At the end of the day two choices are diy. Or someone like grippatank, pure freedom, etc, to kit out the van

maybe a CTA on the Homepage  directing people to the search facility! it could say "don't ask stupid questions! they have been asked before!"

What's the best van mount system 

 

@Ashley Brown if you have a look on YouTube there are a few videos on people making their own systems. I’m about to start trying to make a small system of my own. Hope this link works but this guy has built his very cheaply indeed - although you might want to buy higher quality parts (and a tank rather than containers) the basic fundamentals will be about the same 👍

My first and current system is DIY. But next month I am having a professional one fitted (http://www.pure2o.co.uk). There are many routes to take. A company like Daqua  (https://www.daqua.co.uk) are a great resource and can help both advice you on exactly what you need and help kit you out. Other companies like WCW (https://windowcleaningwarehouse.co.uk) have good websites and sell starter kits but not the best customer care or quality. 

The best van mounted system in my opinion is a crash tested one. Only a handful advertise crash tested system. Grippa (https://www.grippatank.co.uk), Pure Freedom (https://purefreedom.co.uk), Ionics (http://www.ionicsystems.com) and Pure2O (http://www.pure2o.co.uk) a 'budget' offshoot of Ionics. I know of no others. They all have their pros and cons but the important point is they have tested their systems to be safe in an accident. 

I went Pure2O as they priced matched a quote from WCW for a similar system, something they advertise they will do on the website. So best to get a few non crash tested quotes then take the cheapest one too them. 

Of course, DIY is a lot, lot cheaper. Its what I did when I started. That choice is personal, you need to look into to all and decide what you wanna do. Any questions though feel free to ask, we're happy to help! 😃

The entire point of this place is to ask for help. I asked loads of questions when I started that had been asked before. Sometimes I found them when searching but no always. This is a forum, not a manual, after all.

There is or used to be but all the years I have been on here people completely ignore that message and ask the same questions even when the same question is the 3rd topic down on a page so staff have to merge topics on a regular basis, that's just the way it is at times the same thing happens right across any forums or online groups

Diy system best if i ask me 

Exactly. Build your own choose what gear suits you for the money you want to spend. Also knowing your equipment and its makeup will be a valuable tool for fault finding later down the line
