Wet Vac Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Struggling for valeters at the moment so going to have to resort to doing seats ourselves.

Any recommendations guys? Screwfix/Amazon have machines from £40 - £800 and know nothing about them.

Cheers

Snap :(

I’ve dusted off my old Titan that I see Screwfix are still selling, now £44.99. It’s a no frills wet or dry pick-up machine - no water feed (so you need a bucket & brush) or fancy transparent nozzles but if it’s just a temporary stopgap machine you want they are unbreakable & suck very well :lol:. I bought it 5 years ago for builders muck when doing up a house & can’t break the bloody thing!

:lol: I’m hoping not to use it much longer - only until the valeter reopens. I’ve had a sharp reminder just how much value for money the valeter offers. What a miserable f***ing job, imagine doing it day in, day out. They deserve a medal.
