  1. Past hour
  2. Adjusting the pressure switch won't help you. There could though be a fault with the microswitch inside the pressure switch. It could be that the contacts are burnt and causing an electrical resistance.
  3. Thanks Spruce, I use van's battery, no leisure batt. I dont drive far so it's charged overnight daily.
  4. Update; it's better now. Happened once yesterday. All day one road fronts, so long hose and very soft now in this heat. Pump is struggling to keep the pressure now, I can hear its going for 10 sec when I close the flow. Previously it will stop after few secs. Ionics simple analog controler doesnt have calibration options. Do I try to adjust pressure switch screw? Would I screw in or out a bit? I think I will also cut 10meters of the hose to make it easier for the pump. Don't use all 100m. Anyone had similar issues with Ionics system?

    pole advise please

    Of course....I use my xtreme 25 for most work including f/s/g cleans,conny roofs,etc.... I dont see the point in messing about with different poles as the 25 is so light and rigid to use all day every day....I have lots of work with awkward angle windows though so it's the perfect pole for me....

    New pfr ro system.

    Not sure what system you have but they do say flush for several hours when new, and it should gradually improve. It should get down to about 7 after the ro and before the di from a tap reading of 270

    Yes, if you can, go ex18 must be lovely to work with or start with slx18, great value and no maintanance... I will get extreme22 next to have for jobs I dont have to get 30 out. Its same weight as slx18. Then I will get ex18 next to have comparison to slx18.

    pole advise please

    Extreme 18 extreme 25 with extreme 35 extension pack and a further two extension when needed. and my favourite clx4 extreme 18’ covers approx 90% of my work so a no brainier for me. Whats good for me might be no good for someone else’s round.

    pole advise please

    The SLX is slightly lighter and slightly stiffer than CLX but if you put a really light brush, we're currently using 35cm Tapertec, it makes the CLX much easier to use, not that we find it hard as we still remember fibreglass poles. With the additional cost and black hands I wouldn't buy another SLX. I wouldn't buy a CLX above 27' though, that's if you can.

    pole advise please

    Yea that's what ive been wondering all a long,Its about lightness. would you be tempted to buy an extreme 18,go the whole hog like?
  20. Diamond geezer

    pole advise please

    I would buy I think eighther an18 or 22 extreme just go as light as possible as most of my work is in this region,using the 33 carbon I have on 15% of work,it would prob feel like a ton weight though after an extremeWould you use it on gutter/facia cleaning or is it to delicate?
  21. moto

    pole advise please

    Started with slx22, but now I use 18 and its soo much lighter/nicer to work all day Added 2 extensions to 22 for all jobs I cant reach with 18 (5%), half of those i could reach with 22, so will add new 22 slx or exreme soon... Still cheaper to replace slx18 used daily for most jobs.
  22. Diamond geezer

    pole advise please

    That's suprized me clx in preference to slx it crossed my mind however that a clx might be nicer to handle, with regards to black hand syndrome but what about weight and stiffness,please
  23. dazmond

    pole advise please

    xtreme 25 pole is a good all arounder and is very easy to use day in/day out for most of my work.....3 storey,skylights,awkward set back windows,its fantastic... for anything higher i use an xtreme 47....these are the only 2 poles i use for my work....
  24. Pjj

    pole advise please

    Yes we all do different height buildings 80% of my estate type properties can be done with an 18 foot pole , most 3 storey domestic and commercial with a 25 , hotels and apartment blocks 46-72 , I always opt for the shortest pole that will do the job safely as it’s cheaper and lighter
  25. Diamond geezer

    pole advise please

    What I meant was, I realized I could stand further back.not having to look up somuch,but of course a 22 is a tad more heavyer to carry all day,(swings and roundabouts)Yes Good idea Davy G
  26. Univalve Or Clabber hose reel
  27. yep...after years in this business you learn what works for you in regards to wet weather working....i also wear waterproof hiking trousers from decathlon in the wet,cold winter months...cost around £40..well worth it...of course you need waterproof boots as well.....its better than having the day off because of a bit of rain....
  28. Davy G

    pole advise please

    What a good idea. I honestly never thought of that. Every day is a learning day. We use two lengths Gardiner SLX 22, and extreme 22 for almost all of our work. And SLX 30 for just a couple of jobs. 18 ft would be of little use for most of our work. 25 ft would be overkill for us but a useful length for some people..
