    Xline Trolley system

    That’s exactly what I do; leave the trolley/DI vessel in the boot; DI vessel attached thru the car window using a few feet of 6mm microbore to the hose reel, which has 100m microbore which I attach my pole to. Use an old bike chain/lock on the hose reel depending on the area, but the overall process works fine - and I don’t have to get the trolley out the car at all. Carry a load of 25l barrels to fill up on the go. Made a huge difference to how I work...that and a univalve! Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  2. I had a similar message on my controller, ended up it was the battery too flat to activate the pump rather than airlock and I had to charge it using a more heavy duty charger rather than the little charger that usually worked, so maybe check that just in case Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Fascia cleaning

    @scottish cleaning service - couldn’t see the hose attachment - is it a standard hose lock style connector? Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Backpack hose extension...which hose?

    I use 100m of 6mm microbore running from my trolley to the pole hose, leave the trolley in the car with the hose reel just outside (tethered to the car with an old motorcycle security chain). Look at it as future proofing for when I expand and eventually get a van. Makes using the trolley so much more flexible, not having to drag it around. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Static Ibc tank frozen

    I had several 25l barrels split between the car and the shed - all totally frozen. Hope your tank not damaged. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    K systems

    Friend of mine has an RO system from them, recommended them to me too for when I move onto a van system from my trolley. Think the guy came out and fitted everything as part of the price, which was off eBay and seemed quite reasonable compared to many I’ve seen. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Getting bits and peices cheaper elsewhere??

    Another post had the foam ball protectors on sale in sports direct. I’ve used B&Q for cheap hozelock style fittings, and a local iron mongers for o-clips. Have only bought rectus 21 from gardeners, although would be interested to hear if eBay suppliers are just as good Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Uniform Suppliers

    I used these guys for some embroidered polos, hoodies and a soft shell jacket, was quick turnaround, good quality and are lasting well, and I’m not gentle with them. Not too expensive either https://www.tshirtstudio.com Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums

    FSG newbie Pricing help - North West

    Good suggestion - It’s not been done yet, have gone past the house a few times, is still untouched, but I’m going to contact the customer for some feedback...assume “too expensive...” but will see what she says. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums

    Too expensive

    Best advice from here was set your hourly rate, see how fast you can work and stick to it. Will always be other guys cheaper, or dearer. But you will get annoyed with the houses you under quote... Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums

    Leafleting campaigns - Yes Please

    The “menu” idea is interesting, like that people can see right away a ballpark figure - am finalising my first leaflets before getting printed, this was useful thanks Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums

    Nano trolley or Water Genie which is best

    I use the orange xline trolley, chunky and so far very reliable. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
