    Never trust a first clean

    All part of the service tuffers- I struggle to get them dark grey though, seems a popular colour around me! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    I’ve not come across any of these that don’t leak from the connectors from day 1 Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Back up pump box

    Applepicker - it was me that’s selling the pump box. Look in the marketplace - the details should still be around somewhere! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Lifting 25 L Containers

    I used to use one of these - transfers water very quickly if you use 1” 1/4 hose. No battery power needed just a stable surface to operate the lever. I mounted mine on the end of some shelves in my van and it filled my container (from van mount) in less than a minute. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    vauxhall vivaro CREW CAB

    TWC - with regards to fostering, I would check with your social worker about car seats as the company we fostered with wouldn’t allow kids in the front of a vehicle at all. They will go through it all every time you have new kids and have to complete a safe care policy. It’s all nonsense but I wouldn’t rule out a crew cab Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  9. Screwfix no nonsense is pretty decent, it’s all near enough the same stuff but the screwfix stuff is cheap and it won’t catch you out if it dries on. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  10. That looks like soap build up - so not necessarily the seals breaking down. Once you get them off as long as you are cleaning them regularly they will come off with a bit of TFR on the brush. The pink stuff would blast through them stains - especially with a magic sponge and a washing up type of brush. Even a bad ‘restore’ would take 10-15 minutes at the most per window so just price it right and give the customer the blurb that if the seals are knackered they will bleed again. I find the older windows (like in the picture) don’t stain as bad as new plastic. New builds are a pain in the ar$e as virtually every window have the bleed makes on once they’ve been cleaned a few times. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Customers moaning about the Rain

    Same here - work in the rain up to a point, if the wind is blowing it on to walls and glass then I don’t bother - I go and clean gutters/conservatory roofs/solar panels or internal windows instead Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Jets

    Personal preference in my opinion. I started with pencil jets then changed to fan jets after a year, still using fan jets but have often thought about trying pencils again to see if I’m missing out. I find fan jets allow you to wince faster Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Help with diy system in van

    Not all IBC’s are unbaffled - I believe ionics systems released a baffled one which was housed inside one of there crash tested frames. If you are fixed on an IBC (which would be daft as you can get baffled 1000ltr tanks cheap off eBay) fill it to the brim with plastic aerated balls (the practice golf balls you can buy). Obviously you’d lose a few litres of water capacity through displacement but it would be a better baffle than the single one you get in wydale tanks. Obviously make sure it’s in a frame that’s bolted as well. Like James Bond says, use the IBC in the garden to produce pure in to or harvest rainwater. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Snow from Russia stained UPVC

    Magic sponge and TFR. If they are really stubborn a magic sponge with the pink stuff - it’s my new favourite combo!! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
