OK my idea so i guess i should go first. I stay upstairs in a 4 in a block and have no access to a hose so a normal car wash for me would consist of going to the jet wash to get the worst off the car and then a hand wash back home, which would include 5 or 6 trips upstairs to get buckets of water to rinse the car.

First thought seemed worth a punt at £15 delivered to the house not expecting much .

Used it tonight for the first time, conditions damp and overcast . The pressure was ok and fine for rinsing the car but wouldn't hold out any hope for removing any debris.

I washed the car panel by panel and rinsing as i went , then moved onto the wheels and easily had 4 litres of water left . The outsunny does exactly what i need as in rinses car with no trips back up stairs so have to give it a seven out of ten . Only reason ive dropped a few marks is the pressure is a bit low and the build quality is ok but not sure how long it will last . Still at the price if had to buy one every six months it would be worth it .

Good stuff, it must be a pain in the arse having to go through all that.i've just realised how easy I've got it to wash my car, even then I was considering turning my shed around so I don't have to drag my pressure washer out and round the side of the shed :laugh:

I'm not sure if you've heard of it before but you can use a product called ONR (Optimum No Rinse) from what I've read on detailing world there's loads of folk in your situation that swear by it. You still need a bucket or ideally two but that would still just be the one trip down the stairs but if you find the out sunny isn't quite what you want. Have a look into ONR
