  1. Hypo on uvpc going yellow?

    I wonder what caused that then?
  2. Hi, I think this has been brought up before but I cant find it .Last week I was cleaning some uvpc with some hypo 1% mix and parts of it started to go yellow/orangey colour. I've heard about this happening but this was the first time for me.I managed to scrub it off, but would of gone in time by it's self? is it caused by uvpc being oxidized? and is there anyway of telling before hand?

  4. Roof cleaning/ tile colours

    Thanks for the info, can hypo strip the pigment off those concrete tiles? I've done a few roofs with smooth tiles (clay) and they have cleaned up really well. I didn't get the job in the end I quoted 1200 and she knocked me down to a 1000. But then she had a company go in cheaper and they painted the tiles too. That job was near Stansted airport
  5. Roof cleaning/ tile colours

    That top pic both tiles have been treated with the same amount of hypo? I use 1-4 mix .Roof looks good mate
  6. Hi I've cleaned a few roofs now with soft washing and I've had great results. The pictures below are samples I've done for potential customers as you can see on both times the tiles have come up two different colours can anyone tell me why this is? The other roofs I've done were clay smooth tiles and they came up brilliant. Any advise would be great thank you.
  7. Yeah it don't look bad for the money just wondered why they are so cheap
  8. Hi has any one got this trolley? it's a lot cheaper than most on ebay a good 140-200 cheaper . It looks like it's built well but just wondered if anyone had one before I took the plunge.http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WFP-034-Water-Fed-Pole-Window-Cleaning-Trolley-System-034-Top-Spec-Lowest-Price-/112386955036?

    Cheers Tench, there's a video benz do on converting your system to a soft wash one but i can't find it now. Would a backpack suffice for running a soft wash mix through for render facias and gutters? Would it mess the pump up? And also is the pressure from 100psi pump enough to rinse of the hypo or am i better of getting a half decent pressure washer . Sorry mate loads of questions

    Hi, I was just looking through some of your posts and im interested in getting into soft washing.I've been cleaning windows for years and I've always cleaned facias with my pole and as you know it can be hard work.This looks a loss less work and with great results Is it Possible to run that hypo souloution through my pole and is there a attachment you you can put on the end of it to make it spray out with some pressure? also does soft washing work on conservatory roofs? Thanks in Advance Joe
