  1. Razer UPVC Wash Vs Acrylic Roofs?

    Haven't used Razr on acrylic so I can't comment on that. But I have used it on general PVC and I must say it's pretty good actually. Leaves a good shine too! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  2. Hard week with the xline pole 😂

    I'm on Gardiner 18 which weighs about 995 grams, coupled with an extreme brush which weighs 95 grams, the 18 reaches about 80-90% of my work and I love how light my set up is I get no issues with neck or shoulder or anything. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  3. Resin before RO

    I think I've solved it. You aren't going to believe this. Basically it should have 3 pre filters like you said. What happened he set the system going and couldn't get the TDS below 25. He rang the company up he bought it from and told them and the guy he spoke to on the phone told him to take the carbon filter out and put resin in and use that as his resin vessel (words fail me). He then came to me having removed the sediment filter and putting in his resin, hence why I was perplexed. So basically he got bad advice from the company he bought it from! A company from Sheffield as it happens [emoji23] I've told him to put his sediment filter back in and keep the resin chamber I have him lol and your right 28 isn't great, I think he may need to flush it a bit longer as it's new, plus he is getting a booster pump as his water pressure is 40 psi!

  4. Resin before RO

    Yes this is what I thought, he has bought this System brand new. I just wanted to check if anyone else had a system with resin before RO in case it was something I hadn't heard of! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  5. Resin before RO

    Yeh that's what I thought too, but when I inspected it there didn't seem to be any other way to set it up. There was 3 vessels before the membranes and the first vessel had no filter in like it is meant to put resin in. I ended up giving him a spare resin vessel I had to put after the RO and we took the resin out of that first one, as soon as we did that it came out 000 ppm. His TDS out of his RO before resin was 28 so where the 6 ppm had come from I don't know lol Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  6. Resin before RO

    After a bit of advice. I've built up a bit of knowledge now about RO's how they work and the General set up, mainly through this forum and google lol one of my Window Cleaning friends has just bought an RO System and he couldn't get the TDS below 6ppm. He brought it round for me to have a look and the resin vessel was at the start of the system, so the tap water went through the resin first, then pre filters then membranes. Anyone else seen this before? He said the company he bought it from told him this system worked opposite to others so he reckons that's how it should be set up but for me it doesn't seem right to have resin first. Any opinions welcome! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

  8. Conservatory Ladder

    This is the one I have and I really appreciate the plastic/rubber tray for kneeling on when your up the ladder, I would imagine kneeling on ladder rungs for a while would kill your knees. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

  10. scott dennings blue turbo brush

    Cool, sounds good. Does it leave a shine the TFR or just a really strong degreasant? I've been using the Razr Upvc Cleaner from WCW, which is good at leaving a shine, just maybe not as strong. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

  13. First Clean Prices

    I'm in North Yorkshire. I used to only charge extra if it was a one off or a customer who wanted an irregular clean, i.e. 2,3, or 4 times a year. I used to explain to the customer if they wanted a regular 4 or 8 weekly service I wouldn't charge extra for the first clean (in my eyes I was happy to take the hit on a first clean to get a regular customer). I quickly found that for every 1 customer that stayed regular there was 1 customer that said they wanted a regular but cancelled after 1 or 2 cleans so obviously didn't want to pay the one off premium and that was how they got out of it. So now all first cleans are priced higher, between 25% and 50% Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  14. How many domestics a month?

    I didn't use a company either just got myself out there and knocked the doors. If all they are going to do for £50 is post leaflets imo you probably won't get much business from 1000 of them. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  15. shop front quote help

    Have to say, personally I dont bother with shops anymore. Find they have no loyalty. As they are in retail a very competitive business they will happily drop you for a cheaper price. I've had 3 shops n my whole time and lost everyone to undercutting, one to a girl still at school charging £2.50 for a shop I was doing for £8. Yet I have domestic customers I have had for years despite numerous canvassers and leafletters. So if a shop asks now I say no thanks, can't be bothered with the hassle of Parking access etc. But that's just me [emoji23] Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
