The backpack will work all day Johnny,depending on his experience an how dirty the windows are,will determine how much water.

Have you nevr used the backpack before?

The man to answer the technical limitations is Alex @Alex Gardiner most guys use backpacks daily but you do not want to drain the batteries to low without regular charging.

How many houses will you be covering as 75L of water won't go far when rinsing

Are you recommending using two poles on one backpack with this splitter ?

You arnt going to clean many windows with 3 barrels of water ,especially if it’s a first clean , unless you keep re filling them from the tank .

So he's intending to use two water fed poles from one van system pump and hose reel?

He’s actually been trying to set up another pump and reel but hasn’t had any luck ,

 

so instead of using the backpack he could get the splitter instead ,

A splitter on one feed is totally ridiculous and there won't be enough flow to work with

I hope not again 😬😬😬 especially with one reel with 6 mm hose and the other with 8 mm 

1 pump 1 reel 2 WFP ,  it’ll help him out till he can get his other pump and reel going , better then somebody else using a backpack I would say , obviously depending on size of the house

I don't care if someone wants to slate me for speaking my mind but he really hasn't a clue about equipment usage of the correct delivery of water.

2 men one pump haha says it all @Pjjyour turn sir

interesting,  have you tried it out

The best solution to setting up a 2 man system in a van is One water tank with 2 yes Two  outlets  to insert 2 Taps.   When 1  reel in use just turn the other tap off.

how easy would that be  

My problem solved 

Or a sythoning hose to fill back pack .   id still prefer 2 reels

Been there and done that 18 years ago it didn’t work then and it won’t work now running two poles off one pump it always favours the lower pole and the reel with the shortest amount of hose , the best option in theses circumstances would be to use the back pack instead of the second reel off the same pump until you can get it set up one pump one pole .
