    GDPR WHAT TO DO?

    I had a good chat with one of my good friends who runs a branding and website building business. He’s for obvious reasons had to find out exactly what it means. He said first of all the ICO, the company in charge of governing it, investigated 34 companies world wide last year in regards to GDPR, that’s 34 companies in the whole world were investigated. He said that even though these new updated laws have come in they still will only investigate companies who have had thousands of complaints in regards to selling peoples data etc. I’ve heard scare stories on FB from people saying all it takes is a bitter ex customer to dob you in and that’s it you’ll be investigated. This won’t happen, we needent over worry ourselves. As has been mentioned the main GDPR laws are focused on either selling customers data, or using their details to send them newsletters and marketing materials, you need explicit consent for this. I don’t do any of this. Other than that all I’m worrying about is having a couple of documents ready just to outline what data I hold, why I hold it, how I keep my customers data secure and what I would do in case of a breach. Then in the extremely unlikely event I am investigated I can show exactly what’s what and that I only keep necessary data for the sole purpose of carrying out my business activities.

    Introducing the Perry Pump

    It was originally developed so that DI users could bypass their resin vessels and inject additives or chemicals. I use it predominantly to inject Enigma additive, I don’t have DI in the van but it seems to boost the performance of the additive injecting it this way. But as I have the pump there I now use it for all my pvc work too. Sometimes I apply and scrub Chems with the Perry Pump and then use the customers tap to rinse it off. Other times I use pure for rinsing too.

    Introducing the Perry Pump

    Cool, that’s the beauty of this pump you can adapt it to your needs. The reason I don’t inject after the pump is simply because the water pressure after the pump can cause issues. Before the pump there is no pressure, after the pump there could potentially be up to 100 psi of pressure (not that many run at full tilt), so having extra joints and also injecting the chemical can be an issue. I’ve never tried it myself mind so it could well be fine.

    Introducing the Perry Pump

    @Rb4no as Dave said above you can work it out with premixes etc but you can’t actually set the pump to inject a certain amount of chemical ie 10-1 or 50-1. The pump runs at a certain litre per minute ratio if run at full tilt but that changes once hooked up to your controller as it then runs alongside the speed of your controller. The way I work it I just have a couple of 5 litre bottles made up of different strength of chemicals and change the bottle over dependent on strength needed. On the very odd occasion I inject neat. When I use the Perry Pump all day it uses up 5 litres of pre mixed solution, that’s a full days work.

    Introducing the Perry Pump

    I believe it’s something like 20-60 ml per minute but as you wire it into your controller and pump the flow works along with your controller. When I’m using it for additive for Window Cleaning I use 5 litre of mix in a full day, so that 5 litre of pure water with 10-15 ml of additive mixed in.

    Sorry for the delayed response Lads. Glad a few of you are finding it interesting. I will speak with @kevinc250 and put out another post with a parts list and maybe a little video on how it’s put together, so look out for that 👍🏻 Will message on this post when I’ve done that.

    Introducing the Perry Pump

    Glad to hear it lads. I can testify it works very well, and I know Kevin has been using it over a year with no problems at all. It’s so cheap to build and even cheaper to fix should it need to. I’ll speak with Kevin and see what we can do about giving info on how to build it. @kevinc250
  9. Evening Everyone. Here’s something for you all to think about 🤔 Would a chemical injection pump be of interest to you?? You can make one like this for less than £25, it’s easy. Everything about the Perry Pump, as it has been named, is explained in the videos. But basically it is a dosage/injection pump that slowly injects whatever you want into your pure water feed, crucially after your tank, or even after your DI vessel if it is is your van. It can be useful for injecting additives, to improve them or to simply bi pass your DI Vessel. It can also be used for injecting Upvc chemicals while you are scrubbing gutters, Soffits, conservatories etc. Then you simply turn it off and you are back to pure. You can even use it in winter to inject isopropanol to stop your water freezing. It’s all @kevinc250 idea, and he is happy to let people know about it and let them know how to build one themselves. I’ve been using it for a good few months and it works great. So if anyone is interested please let me or Kevin know and if there is enough interest we may do a how to video on how to build one and what you need. It is a really useful bit of kit to have 👍🏻 DBF5F3EE-1D1E-4E47-B622-082F9DF03FB6.mov F3AA3AE8-B7F8-4118-B363-F352EE76A875.mov DA7A8368-7E43-4D2F-98CF-F3577C6DDA4A.mov 34983C05-2620-4765-ADD6-102D090F7770.mov

    New Enigma Vs Vision II

    I’ve been using Enigma since last December and I think it’s great personally. Can’t say I have ever noticed it leaving glass dirty, in fact quite the opposite so I’m not sure what has happened on your Windows tench. But I have used it on lots of different types of Windows. Commercial, domestic, big, small, wooden, pvc, aluminium, Georgian etc etc. All with great results and they do defo dry quicker. If anyone is interested there is a small dosing Pump you can build yourself for less than £25 for injecting additives or Upvc chemicals into your water feed. Injecting Enigma makes it work even better in my opinion.

    Window Cleaning Software...

    I'm going to give squeegee another thumbs up. I tried Cleaner Planner and found it frustrating having to do it all on the computer, it meant having to turn it on every day log on, log in etc and my computer is slow. It has an app but it is very basic and at the end of the day you have to log onto your CP account online and upload your days work sheet. You can log onto your online database on your phone but it's not very phone friendly. Squeegee is very much app based so you can do everything on your phone/tablet. There is a basic free version which is great if you only need that. I have the pro version at £30 a month and it pays for itself in time and energy saved no end. It is still a work in progress and they are still improving as it's new so it will only get better. They are integrating GoCardless at the end of the month. And finally if ever yo need help they are very helpful and easy to deal with [emoji106] I personally tried CP and couldn't get on with it but some love it.

    GoCardless

    Go Cardless take the money from your customers account and put it straight into your account, they don't hold any money. It takes 5 working days to process it. They take a 1% fee with a minimum of 20p and the fee gets deducted straight from the transaction. So it goes like this: You request £15 from your customer for there Window Cleaning...... GoCardless then start the process of debiting the money from your customers bank..... 5 working days later you will receive £14.80 into your chosen bank account (£15 minus the 20 p minimum fee). As easy as that!!!
  15. I got them but couldn't get on with them, but I rinse off the glass so that is probably why. I have recently bought a WCW Phantom Horsehair Brush and then fitted a rinse bar from X-Line to it, and it is the best/quickest brush head set up I have personally had. I can blitz Frames and Glass on Regular cleans in seconds, and even the few first cleans I did this week didn't take as long.
