  1. Thanks to jamesthered. I appreciate your comments. It's certainly given me some direction to think about. It is a serious matter that could sneak in and give us all sorts of headaches...
  2. The 'General Data Protection Regulation' is coming in very soon. It is a very specific regulation to do with records that businesses and other organisations keep of their customers and contacts. Does anyone have any experience of dealing with this area of our business life that can give some helpful guidance etc? Many Thanks

  4. Insurance cancelled

    I'm surprised you got insurance with them. I tried them after seeing them at the cleaning show many years ago "We specialise in insuring window cleaners" or some such tosh. They wouldn't entertain any tank system that wasn't "professionally installed" ie by Ironics, swindon. No negotiation, just no. Haven't bothered them since How do you secure your tank?
  5. SUN GLASSES ALDI

    Sunglasses are a good idea. What you really need to consider getting is a hat! I will wear a rather fetching baseball cap (the right way round) or a rather splendid straw boater when the sun is out. A Panama is something I really aspire to....... Serves many purposes, the main one being that you can hold your head with the sun just being kept out of your eyes by the visor or brim of the hat. Much better effect than squinting, even with sunglasses on.
  6. aqua-dapter

    Best thing since Mr Hovis decided to make life easier for people with blunt knives. Get spare springs though. I've not had a grommet problem. Don't get their red hose for use with hot water (unless you use hot water), dreadful to work with - to stiff, won't uncoil properly.
  7. Can we get back on track here. This set of posts started about a fellow window cleaner who has had a nasty fall. But I suppose comments like "maybe a round going" set the tone....... Not good
  8. Resin issue

    The tds meter I've been using is the in-line type, gives an instant reading after the ro and after the resin. I recently bought a handheld tds meter and tested the water in my van tank. The reading was zero, even after the water had been through the resin showing 3ppm! So I'm a little suspicious of my 3 1/2 year old tds meter.
  9. Aqua-dapter

    Aquadapter. Brilliant. Pole manufacturers, I've found, get a bit sniffy about them "Oh we don't recommend you use them. Most of our clients use our tap/kink the hose blah blah blah........" Since I fitted them I can work faster and have more control of the water and therefore save water and earn more! They do require maintenance and are not fool proof (make sure you have some replacement springs) but the pro's outweigh the cons imo
  10. Resin issue

    Sorry Guys, for not replying sooner. Been off with the flu. I've not been keeping up with stuff. Thanks for your comments. I might try calling the suppliers, Cleaning Spot, for their comments. I haven't set system running for about 10 days or more...
  11. Hi All I run a pair of 150gpd ro membranes into a pair of 700ml resin canisters. Been doing it for nearly 4 years and it suits the way I work. I've got a particular issue with the resin. I changed the ro a few months ago and they are running at about 7/8 ppm. I'm ok with that. The problem is the resin. I like to change it when it clicks to about 4 ppm after the resin. I'm used to it running at zero for quite a few days and then gradually building up the reading until I then change it again. What has been happening, like last week, I change the resin and then within about 5-600 ltrs of water produced it jumps almost straight away to 3 ppm. The resin I use has been the Unger virgin etc, brand new bag. Comments / help appreciated
  12. Hourly Rate

    I earn £1,000 per HOUR!!! £15,000 per day!!!! £60,000 per week!!! (I only do 4 days. lol) Over £3million a year!!! of course I get paid nothing like that.......... sad face
  13. Aqua Tap Who's Got One

    I have to agree. Great addition to your kit. I've used one for a couple of years now. I didn't like having a tap and hose attached to a belt and having them straying on the ground wasn't very satisfactory either. they do seem a matter of personal taste, though.
  14. Suggestion I made some time ago is to take off gloves and to sit on them whilst driving to next job. Nice and warm then. Only downside is that if they are slightly damp they will leave hand prints on yer bum.......
  15. SOLD SOLD Description of item: Unger 27 foot fiberglass water fed pole. The collapsed length is 1.8m (approx 6 foot). This is in quite good condition as it's something I used very occasionally for 3 storey jobs, as most of my work is 2 storey houses and I have an 18 footer for that work. It is showing very little signs of wear, just a few scratches on the underside of the top sections due to being in contact with some roof tiles while doing some Velux and dormer windows. The clamps all work perfectly and grip the sections solidly. 27 foot is well within reach for most 3 storey properties. Also included :- Vikan cill brush (used, this was my main brush on 18 foot pole) Ionic double trim brush (used) Angle adapter (used) Pole hose with quick connect 'end stop' fitted (used) There's plenty of life still in this pole and with all these accessories you're ready to go! This is really a superb bit of kit from a trusted manufacturer (Unger) that will enable you to get to those high jobs safely and efficiently without breaking your neck or the bank. Also listed on a well known auction site so get in quick before it goes to high! Price: £ poa + postage or pick-up for free (wiltshire) NOW BEEN SOLD Pictures/Video: [ATTACH]3496.IPB[/ATTACH][ATTACH]3497.IPB[/ATTACH][ATTACH]3498.IPB[/ATTACH]
