Maybe just stop messing about with the idea of lugging water about and backpacks and get yourself something like this instead :Image16:

I'd better start saving then. Backpack for starters, earn more money quicker then move up to the van install.

 

Thanks for the advice y'all

You can get a 210L garden water butt a lot cheaper and if your only getting the back pack don't really see why u need the 100m hose as u can take the back pack with u on a small trolley. Less your planing on leavening it in the car and thats why u want the hose and in that case you will need a on off tap or ur have no control.

Can't really rely on a garden butt but I will think about it.

 

I was thinking of leaving it all in the car and just use a long hose with a controller on the pole. Hmmm.

 

Its all about getting the right RO system for the money first

Get a used ibc of ebay. I got 2x for less than £50.

 

That pole is 2 small and if its your only one you will out grow it very fast!

 

Get at least a 200gpd system with a booster pump and rain water harvest!

 

As said before backpacks are ok to start but like the pole you will either quickly out grow it or it will **** you off wasting time filling up and lugging around barrels 8hrs a day!

 

That's just my opinion

I run my complete round from a trolley with a mounted hose reel.

 

I have bilge pump and can fill 25l in around 29 seconds.

 

Today I did three houses to a chap two. He was running off the van. He was very impressed on how easy and quick it was.

 

I daren't tell him one of mine had a small conny as well.

Hey Damo any chance of seeing some pics of your set up or a spec list please. It sounds like it works very well for you.

 

What kind of Bilge pump are you using?

 

I'm thinking I'll get a 250l container for the car and a 400l at home.

 

Cheers
