Easy to use, even for our smaller Firefighters.

Q&A's:

"Hi... could I use this to clean a small balcony? I just need something (not a hose pipe) which can spray water and wash off the tiles. Let me know... Simon"

Hi, we are going to give 2 different options that are a lot less expensive than the Indian Pump tank that's well over a hundred dollars, also were not sure what you mean by a ""hose pipe"". How about a garden hose or a tree sprayer both can be picked up at the local Home Depot or Lowe's. Having said all of that yes you can use this for cleaning your small balcony or deck, expect it to give you a work out, it's a lot of pumping,

"How do you start to use the pump?"

Sandy, have you ever seen one of these? first thing you need to do is fill the back tank, take the hand pump, into your left hand (right hand if your a righty) and you move the slide part in and out, you should then get a stream of water out the nozzle.

"Is there any substantial difference between the polyethylene tank model and the galvanized steel tank model other than the material the tank is made of?"

Other than the construction material on the Indian tanks there are a few differences. Mainly the difference can be seen in the weight with the metal being a little more than the polyethylene (by either 1 -2 lbs). Also the polyethylene has a different design when it comes to the base of the tank to make it more comfortable to wear. Both tanks hold the same amount of water and function in the same capacity.
