  • when did you start window cleaning?

  1. Blocked downpipe clearing

    Sometimes it’s quicker to take the down pipe to bits but if you don’t use ladders I’ve used this with great success - it would be quite difficult on a restricted access downpipe but the wire is very malleable Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  2. Met my match, any ideas?

    Solvent Cleaner is my last resort, that strips back to good if it’s not yellowed straight through. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  3. Dead end stop on new pump

    Sounds like you need to calibrate your controller. Should be in your instruction manual if it’s new although I think it’s been covered on here before Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  4. 1st Complaint Today

    I made a vow to only take on brown UPVC as I seem to get all the white mingers. I’ve not seen one in about 6 months!! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  5. 1st Complaint Today

    They are a nightmare! I always explain they may not turn out 100% and if they don’t I trad them. It’s a lot easier and quicker to trad. It makes me laugh when a customer with rotten window frames expects you to perform miracles! I do around four large houses with old sash windows that have seen better days, I must admit I give them a thorough wash with reduced flow and then nip back to the job later on to touch up with a micro fibre. Just make sure you price it correctly. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  6. Charging port for DIY trolley

    If you have a CTEk charger Maplin’s have the bulkhead connector on offer at the minute, I’ve used them on everything I’ve ever made or owned and they are superb! Search code A13TJ on Maplin’s website. £9.00 instead of £18 and free delivery if you spend a tenner. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  7. I’d be very surprised if an insurance company paid out if they saw one of these outdoor/portable water heaters installed in a van anyway Spruce. And as far as I’m aware, not all these heaters have the 20minute cut off? I specifically brought a CE marked heater for the specific reason it was ISO approved and had a safety cut out. My question for the Mod is not for Window cleaning (I’m investigating the option of a caravan/boat specific propane heater/boiler that will be approved for vehicle use so don’t have to worry about things going wrong and insurance) it’s for an off grid project I’m doing where I would like to rig the heater up to a radiator to see if would be a viable and cheap back up option for a wood burner. I’m quite happy and knowledgeable enough to tinker with electrics down to component level - but steer clear of anything gas related as, for some reason, it scares the cr&p out of me. Luckily my mates a gas engineer so had my setup ticked off by him. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  8. You won’t go far wrong with the m8trix - wouldn’t be without mine now. Personally I’m reluctant to use spikes - my fibreglass youngman ladders have them on the swivel feet - they aren’t too kind on tarmac drives or printed concrete. I’ve left marks before and have a few customers that would notice the odd dent or scratch!! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  9. Cannot seem to order reels from grippa

    My understanding is they would release different versions for other applications; like to store/use transfer hose, pressure washing hose etc To say you won’t buy a product ‘just in case’ a new modification comes out limits your buying options - have you never brought an iPhone? I personally think grippatank have been more than open in explaining that - although it’s had extensive field testing - they would never rule out any room for improvement. I’d rather an open answer like that than the usual sales pitch that it’s perfect and will never be improved? My money is on the new waterworks reel anyway - I like the look of the auto hose lay tied in with the rollers so you can just press a button and let the reel do the work. No sign of it yet though!!!

  10. Making the day go quicker

    Pure move radio for me too although the DAB side of it is a waste of time in my area! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  11. Something else to take to bits once I’ve done my testing then! First day out with it tomorrow in its first configuration so we will see if it’s going to be a better option than the Webasto. Cheers Nudel Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  12. van cleaned out after leaks

    Hot tub? This is called a BATH in the Midlands ! Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  13. wet January

    And get some decent waterproofs !! I’ve resorted to my fishing sallopettes as I was getting sick of getting a wet back and crack Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  14. Which chemical to clean this??

    Tfr20 and magic sponge would be my go to for this - test patch the worst area and quote acordingly making sure the customer is happy with what ‘could’ be achieved. I’ve done a few of these recently and although not 100% the customer has been happy as I’ve shown them a test before and after. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  15. I can’t open the video but if it’s a shurflo pump the head comes apart easily. I’ve done mine a few times as - no idea how - I’ve had debris get stuck and that has the same symptoms, rattling and no real pressure. The only issue I’ve had when reassembling is water leased from the casing but I just smeared Vaseline around the edges when I took it to bits again and made sure the ‘gasket/diaphragm’ seared correctly.
