    What's happened with Tulsion resin?

    I’ve got a bag of MDB19?? Coming tomorrow. As normal had run out, apparently it costs more & higher grade. Anyone tried it?
  4. Been using loads this week with the nice weather & excessive rincing for fear of spotting

    Hi looking at starting up and advice.

    Some microfibers for detailing and wiping sills etc.
  6. Do you find that more effective than TFR on first cleans??
  7. Does anyone know what attachments go on end of this pole? I got given this pole when I bought some kit off this bloke, the pole is 45ft long and has a EZ snap at the bottom but no hose coming out the top and when you look down through the top it looks like a little metal bar going through it.
  8. Not crucial, but maybe a smart pair of black cargo/work trousers, though its shorts weather now admittedly. And a positive mental attitude.
  9. Rough guide, 15 to 25 litres. Also a lot will depend how quick you are. As you get better you will use less. Mind you, like spruce says, beware those filthy ones, take loads more rinsing after the scrub.

    Hi looking at starting up and advice.

    Ok just ordered that. So I now have, gardiner backpack with clx 22 pole, the winters ergotec kit, 500 flyers, facebook page and just orders a work top with logo on for £40 , but want to look professional when flyering in and doing the windows. Is there anything I'm missing to start practicing and moving this all forward to a real source of income?

    Air locks how to avoid

    I used to get loads of airlocks. Im not sure which particular measure stopped them, but I 1) fitted a non return valve about a foot after the water tank outlet 2) moved the pump as low as possible ( i know others have theirs up higher with no problem though, but thought I'd try everything) and 3) removed the pressure switch thing off the pump.,cant remember how or what that was now, but dont need it with a controller. And, touch wood, longest time without air locks.

    On the subject of resin, has anybody tested any other resins?

    If you call them and give your national insurance number then they should know how much tax and nat insurance you paid. You don't want to make a slight mistake or they could make it difficult for you by fining you £100, I think.
  16. This will give you a rough ish guide and starting off it's what I went with. Have an absolute minimum from the get go, my minimum for a front only 6 weekly is £12 My minimum for front and back is £16. Some will squak at your prices as they are used to some of the lads @dmw mentioned but you don't want them on your round. You'll make mistakes it's all part of it but try not to screw your self with an under priced round as it's more of a ball ache trying to fix it then it would be to say no and then pick up a well priced job!

    I could kill who designed this

    I deleted it all and started again. still put no to both but this time it let me go through. I had a paye job last year but in this tax year so got to include that. They never sent me a p45, but I know their ref number and my net payments from them after deduction so surely that would be ok? I think they want it gross, but not a lot of difference in the amount to be honest, and it says optional on the screen, so as long as they wouldnt punish me I'd just put the figure what went in my bank statement. Do you reckon would be ok?

    You have put "No" You did not receive any foreign income then you have went and filled it in by saying No when you should have left it blank, that's why it can't let you move on. Think I'll fill in mine tomorrow as I've not had a headache for a while.

    Hi looking at starting up and advice.

    Hi all So hopefully getting the gardiner backpack tommorrow and clx22. Designed a logo and just spent the evening designing a flyer with my wife which we now have 500 coming on tuesday. Set up an email adress and Facebook page (not sure whether a full website is needed now days?) . Can anyone point me in a directions of what would be a good starter kit for the traditional starter kit please? And hopefully by middle of next week I'll be able to go out and start flyering after having a few days practicing and watching videos
  20. Don't u just hate them. I thought the days of all things going badly wrong were over until today... Terrible air lock on Gardiner pump managed to unblock then started again half way through a job. Then when getting small hose off pump broken small part on it so leaks too much now. Pump wasted 6 months old. Just look ordered another Gardiner hopefully won't take long to arrive. When windows going well it's such a great job, then it turns on u so....

    Amount to charge customers please.

    I don't think so. People need a job to buy a house and banks will not hand out money like sweeties no more. There will be folk handing back their keys to the banks because they don't have a job. Repossessions will be back in vogue and the nearly new lease car will be handed back to the dealers. I heard in China that the shopping malls are still empty because public have lost confidence. Its hard for any Government to install confidence because its a time thing. I hope I'm wrong, I was in 2009 but can't see it this time.
  22. Not as exciting as the title sounds. Trying to do my tax return, page 1 of 3, tailor your return section. said yes, earnt more than £1000 in self employment, then it asks did you receive any income from overseas etc 'no' then, if you received any foreign income do you need to fill in the foreign section? again i put 'no' Then it will not let me proceed. big red box, 'There is a problem' (damn fn right there is) 'If you received any foreign income....'should be 'yes' as you have selected 'Do you wish to claim foreign tax credit relief on capital gains' as 'yes' I bloomin well havent. it says no. What a major design fault. Now the only way out I can see is ive got to sit on the phone to them tomorrow for ages. I know most of you will use an accountant so wont be aware of it. cant even seem to delete and start again. majorly f@ct off I can say
  23. And adding to this he will use more on a first clean. It could even be double the amount @Azz1 We have respected the governments call to remain at home until just recently. Each house we have cleaned so far has been like a first clean as the windows have been really dirty.
  24. Its a big industry and its only going to get bigger and bigger Good for us window lickers and good for all the suppliers lol

    Amount to charge customers please.

    I just started by charging a pound a window or door. Then you begin to realise some are easy and some are hard and have to adjust. I'm usually £8 minimum bar one apartments which I charge a fiver, only 3 windows.
  26. I think you've pretty much summed up the whole industry there H.
