Not from pressure washing but put a conny window through while strimming once, a stone /bit of gravel got thrown from the far end where I was working and went through it like a bullet, horrible isnt it?

Do you know how it happened? IE was it the jet hitting the window or debris? I always try to ensure theres not gravel etc kicking about by sweeping the area first, however a bit of stray dislodged mortar could still cause damage, I think by the law of averages things are going to go awry sometimes, just a case of limiting it and being lucky with good customers :)

If you where using a turbo nozzle it could easily have been a small stone that's done it. I can only imagine how you felt. I'd have been in bits myself. Lucky your custy was cool about it.

Yeah always blow area down with lance on low to remove any bits and was using a whirlaway so just bad luck I suppose might take a board with me to put over doors in future the window fitter said it's quite common for gardeners to do it with mowers and it's always the lower part that gets hit ...
