    Or did the Army sell them all off? Simples I am looking for a small bowser to keep the birds water supply for next season and the old trailer ountedd WCP seems the logical solution. 950 litres rings a bell! If they are surplus anyone seen any for sale? I have looked at DSE and Witham to no joy. The best one would be with the hand and electric pump kit if available but I'm not fussy!
  2. IBC no good?

    Intermediate Bulk Container

    Can't remember the dimensions off the top of my head but I'm sure I've seen one in a Sankey Landrover trailer.

    I have those on site, I really need a means of moving the water from home to the IBC's. WCP would be cool!
    It looks like I will stick with the drums and trailer method!
  4. Nine and a half grand - probably cheaper to get Tescos to deliver individual bottles of Evian.
  5. 8,000 liter tank = £1.18 a litre. Cheap as chips that :)

    I have two of those already, I keep them in situ, I'd rather have a trailer kit ready done.

    Thanks, all a bit expensive, I was hoping for surplus prices!

    Oddly enough on the M40 today I saw a few trucks and one bedfored was towing a trailer with a double WCP!
