    Hey everyone I powerwashed a womens deck who just asked me randomly if i could wash and seal it for her, so i used my equipment and her water. I am going to offer this service to my current clients but before i do i was wondering if its fine to just hook up to their water supply. Is anyone going to even give it a second thought...what do you guys do show up and use theirs or do you have your own tank...im most likely just going to show up and use their water supply, has anyone ever said anything to you for doing that!?

    thanks Dave

    I have a tank and I still use the customer's water. Hard to carry around enough water to wash with.

    Fairly standard to use customers water.

    In any city project, people would expect you to use their water. In arural setting you might bring in water because their well is not enough to supply your equipment.

    We do both, ask first to make sure it's ok, if not we use our own supplied water.
