Garden pump sprayer for hose?

I wonder if anyone already does this. Due to an extension I'm going to loose the use of the hose at the front of the house. I'm looking at getting a garden pump sprayer in place of the hose pipe.

Has any one done this already. What size tank would I need 22L, as this seems to be the size of most buckets? It would be to rinse and pre rinse before wash.

I don't use the foam bottle like this dude, just a 2 litre pump sprayer with prewash.
But the rinse is the same and powerful enough to rinse off over 90% dirt at prewash stage.
Stick the feeding hose into a bucket.
1to2 buckets of water will rinse a car.

are you loosing the tap perminantly? if not, why not use a 5l sprayer with prewash, and then just do an ONR rinseless wash for the rest.

If the mains feed comes to the front of the house, why not get the builders to fit a new feed off the main. MDPE pipe and fittings don't cost much.
