    Pole Hose..........

    Funny you say that I had a length on workers pole the a few years ago and it was 💩. It was unworkable , but the next one I got after the nightmare with Gardiners yellow has been spot on

    Gooseneck/brush keeps coming loose

    As Tuffers has said - you need to tighten up the angle adapter lever a turn or so. To do this open the lever and rotate clockwise by 180 or 360° and then close.
  10. cheers for replies everyone. I bought a Phoenix 35 and can now clean it by using the top of the roof to take some of the weight of the pole, when cleaning front on. My back could not handle tackling this from the side!
  11. Thankfully all my leads minus one have had two brain cells to rub together haha. My best one yet via text as they knew I was a windy. "how much please" Thats it!

    It’s it morale or right

    Surely the padlocks on the garden side so you would need to climb over to get to it anyway.........I have a couple I can lift up a bit to clear the hook, both customers told me this.
  14. I suspect a lot of parts are made in china so those might not be affected anyway. If the value of the pound changes for the worse though we might find stuff suddenly gets expensive.
  15. And 3 storey houses.....picked quite a few up since changing over.

    Water dried up..

    Thanks - must have got confused somehow (doesn't take much when i'm stressed). 1) was previously discussed with supplier - who did come up with another idea but has since back tracked on that - and i'd just been thinking he was a legend too! 2) Solid idea. I like that one a lot and could possibly make that work! But I have more news that might render that idea obsolete as brilliant as it is - see under the next quote 3) Definitely gonna get a cheapy to tide me over / backup 4) Need to look into that as a van would be awesome too. 5) Can't do that yet - too risky for me and risks tend to backfire with me. I'm one of those people who has to plan for the worst (screwed that up this time not having my own RO/DI unit eh!). I do like working there with my colleagues who are great but the weekend just gone was a rotten one. Another windy said to me recently that he could never go back to working for someone else now... "I've gone ferrall" he said lol. Having got the bug myself it's almost torturous going into work to make someone else better off... I can't wait to have a sustainable income from window cleaning. I got word today that their cargo container arrives here tomorrow! Further backing that up, I've also got a notification that my fob and welcome pack have been dispatched so it looks like they're definitely arriving. The voicemail did say that it might still be several weeks until it's plumbed in and operational but it's arriving here tomorrow! Well needed given the lack of alternative RO suppliers round here. I'll pay the site a visit tomorrow and get photos if i can

    LIttle price help please

    I normally charge £20 each side , that includes gutters Aswell, so £80 take me 45mina not even that depends on how dirty they are , by looking at them photos they don’t look that bad , probs 20min

    LIttle price help please

    £120.00 should only take about hour and half m8. If the soffit had vents on I'd charge a bit more as it takes more time. Reach and wash it and touch up of the ladder after if needed.

    Gooseneck/brush keeps coming loose

    I’m having the same problem. Using a streamline pole.
  20. Tighten the round nut opposite the clamp. Turning the clamp rather than the nut helps get a tighter fit.
  21. On a few houses while giving the windows and frames a good scrub the brush becomes loose sometimes and flops about (I use a clx22) means I have to pull it down from extension and re clamp it but the clamp doesn’t feel proper tight, should it be very rigid, maybe I’m scrubbing too hard but I thought it should be made for rough work. Anyone else have this issue? Any tips?

    Hi Guys. Littl help please. How much would you say for cleaning of all the whites? Not the gutters just the facias. House is down south. Thanks for your help.
  23. It's worth capitalising on customers with Velux windows, I've found that people are quite noticeably impressed that they will be part of the regular clean. A big selling point for WFP.

    Gooseneck Stuck in New SLX

    If you remove the last section and stick a long thin pole up the section you can tap it out

    Gooseneck Stuck in New SLX

    When mine did this I sanded down the shafts of the Goosenecks with coarse grade sandpaper till they were a nice slide fit. It only took minutes to do and they still work perfectly years later.
  27. You have also got to be confident in your change over to wfp. This is the best thing since sliced bread and a new process you are very excited about offering. If your are hestitant that this isn't the best way forward then you've lost as your customer will sense it. 15 years ago we had to explain wfp and offer all sorts of guarantees about not collecting payment until they were happy with the quality of the clean. We bought a round consisting of mainly domers. The previous trade guy only cleaned glass and the frames were minging. For me the first day out was a disaster as I only did 7 houses and most were done 3 times. The negativity of our new customers I did that day made me ask myself what I was doing there the following day. This was our first time out with wfp as well. But each of those customers I did the first day come out to pay me and asked that I continue with the way we are doing it. When I drove onto the estate and passed those houses I had cleaned the previous day, even I was impressed at how they sparkled. All the customers on that estate we did were all in expectation of me coming and cleaning their windows with this new process. News of this new method of window cleaning had spread like a wild bush fire. That was a valuable lesson to me; even if 'm struggling show the customer as much enthusiasm as you can muster. I passed some of that work onto another cleaner about 3 years ago to help us out and one of our old customers made sure he was cleaning wfp and not traditionally.
