Hi guys
just reading about the weather hitting us next week. Always causes me a problem. 
I use an oil filled heater over night so no worries their, our problems start when we arrive on jobs, the reels freeze as soon as you reel em out! Then the brush head freezes and so on. Any ideas what we can put in the purified water to stop this winter fixture?🤨

FOR SALE: Pure Freedom Isothermal 2 complete system
Bought this van with the system already installed. I'm. It a window cleaner so it's no use to me.
Ive gone through the system, it's a 600 litre (ish) tank two man 9kw isothermal 2 system.
Both pumps are working fine, the heater system requires a new burner, its leaking and doesnt heat the water. The exhaust system is working. Heater controls and pump controls working fine. 
This is the the reverse osmosis system for hard water.
all pipes, electrics, two batteries, fuel tank,  exhaust Taps etc come with the system, ready to fix the burner (about £800) and bolt into your van. This came out of a MWB Peugeot Boxer which is quite long so you can trim the pipes to suit a smaller van. 
System is removed and sat neatly in my unit with all ancillaries. Collection only or delivery at .40p a mile both ways from BS167EB Bristol.
£1500 no offers. This is £7k fitted

Ok so this is a brief guide / walk through as to how to recover a debt / file a claim with the Small Claims Court against a residential client.
Now many will say 'Oh just write it off, it's only £10' or whatever the price is but in my book the price is irrelevant, it is principal.
If I let a customer get away with two months of window cleaning and I do nothing about it except drop them when they see another window cleaner they will pull the same stunt and get away with more free window cleaning. Unacceptable. If I take action they will think twice before taking liberties with a fellow windy in future.
I have in the past successfully filed against a residential customer and done so as a matter of principal.
The key thing to remember is that being able to take action begins at day 1 when you sign them up as a new client, you need both first and last name and full address minimum, this will make your life easier as you go as you will file against 'Mary Roberts' instead of just 'Mary'
This is my final demand by text for payment.

Now many will say 'oh you don't have a contract etc etc' well the news for you is that a verbal agreement is still a contract under English law. Also you will be very hard pushed to find a Judge in England that has not had a window cleaner at some point and this is in your favor as the judge already understands that window cleaning is a verbal agreement.
I have sent three of these today and given them till Friday to make a payment.
Ruth Fern
Leila Simms
Jackie Cole
I will update you all on the process as it unfolds I know full well that Jackie Cole will not pay as she has ignored previous threats of action. But we will see.
Some on here may also suggest Thomas Higgins solicitors £2+ VAT letter but Higgins will only chase a debt above £25.01 and if proceeding to court can actually end up costing you money so really IMO only worth while for a sizable commercial debt.
Will keep you posted

I have just started up window cleaning with a Gardiner backpack and CLX18 pole and would love some advice on pricing. I have been assuming that the frames are included but have been advised that this is not the case. Please help me with a solid guide as I am lost and in the dark now. I also live in Bournemouth so again a consideration as up north for instance they charge less etc. Many thanks
