    Excellent video Mike. Back when I first started I used to just hook up to the customers house with no tank. I also quickly found out that older wells will dry up if you use a lot of water, so a water tank becomes an absolute necessity.

    I use a 335 water tank and can have up to three machines running off it, for a total of 17gpm. 8gpm + 4gpm, and a 5gpm machine. Most houses have two water outlets and if I need to, I will hook up two sets of intake hoses to keep the tank from draining too fast.

    I like the fact that you have 2 filters.
    I run 2 pw off a 300gallon tank. And some times I link the 2 together when using my suface cleaner.

    You are the man Scott. Not many guys join their machines together.
    Saves you a ton of time, which of course you already know.
