OK so you say 200 houses every 2 weeks. Even at £5 a house, which is too cheap, that's £500 a week - £2000 a month!

So IF you get that many customers your income is quite reasonable. Get your self a decent tds meter - not off ebay as many many fakes about. It's also worth getting a water pressure gauge. Then once you have the numbers then you will be able to work out what you need to make pure.

Because if you don't want to be blowing so many £££'s then spotless will get you going and new sign up's used to get so water for free on the first fill or something.

If you are looking at £3k a month then surely you can invest a bit? If you have spotless near you start with that as that will cut your outlay a lot. You can always produce your own pure once you have some customers and have money coming in.

I assume you know how difficult it will be to get work? Door step canvassing might not go down too well. Just make sure you use PPE and step back from peoples doors. IF you can get 200 customers close by that will be a great round.

 

Good luck and keep us informed how you get on.

It was said on  Facebook group that atm canvassing and leaflet dropping is against the law.  How true I dont know for sure, but best check b4 going.

Always best to check rules especially if the 'rules come from FaceBook'.  While it is legal to work if you can't work from home it's best to protect yourself and custys.

Does the postman deliver letters? Yes then why would it be illegal to drop leaflets?

Facebo11ocks has a lot to answer for, some good and some bad!

Your starting out and already got 200 houses on your estate? or is there 200 houses and you "think" you will get them?. Do some research or you may be spending a lot on setting up and finding you have not got the customer base you think. There probably are other windies working the estate already.
