  1. WFP van mounted system help

    Sorry mate but if you read the top post he was asking about the 240v hook up which is essentially the same as what I mentioned. The 650 RO/DI system comes with split relay intelligent charger for an extra £300 odd. This is straight of grippatank website to explain to you what it is. What is the mains charging system option? This includes an external electrical hook-up port, with an internal mains socket, mains charger, and hook-up cable. Also didn’t mention anything about leisure battery or split relay corroding was on about the charging unit that would run off 240v supply. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  2. WFP van mounted system help

    What’s the difference putting a bench charger in a van with an extension lead to charge the battery. Save yourself £170 for almost the same thing. With the added bonus of being able to take it out so that it doesn’t corrode or get wet. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  3. WFP van mounted system help

    1) might be a good idea. If you buying a nice system might aswell get it done properly. We had our vans Line-x ‘d. Really tough stuff and jet wash it out 4 times a year and comes up new. 2) I don’t think you’ll need it. Sounds a bit expensive but who knows. When we had a leisure battery set up we used to give it a full charge once a week with a Clarke bench charger. Now we run all our electrics of main battery of van and replace between 1-2 years as a consumable item. Which was what we were doing roughly with the split charge system leisure battery. Hope that helps. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  4. Which controller to go for?

    Had a vyair controllers for 5 years with no problems before I went to a mechanical set up. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums

    Got a stack of customers from a tradder who stepped on one of these and it gave way. So wouldn’t advise it unless you want to give work away. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  6. Leaking reel, how to stop it?

    Ok you don’t need that bit of hose pipe you’ve added between your microbore and hose reel. Connect your new clamber aqua stop to the inner spindle but before you do. Unscrew that male connector off spindle. Feed spindle from inside of hose reel. Then when it pokes through the outside of your hose reel put your new 90 degree elbow on the outside. Hope that makes sense. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums

    Where you connect the hose inside. Flip that spindle around. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  8. Tubular Frost Heater

    Thanks for your reply Matey. Was going to insulate van aswell with some space blanket and get a 240w tubular Heater. Might not save much more time but I hate things cluttering up the house or shed. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

  10. Tubular Frost Heater

    If it was a literal 2 minutes I can understand but I’m all about the easy life and streamlining. The more that’s mounted out of the way in the van is better than cluttering my house and shed. 10 minutes more in bed is far more appealing than moving a radiator to and fro my van. And my question was intended to see if they were up to the job over a bulky 1500w oil rad Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  11. Hi Guys. Because of the recent cold weather snap and the pain in butt of putting oil filled radiator in and out of the van every night. Has anyone tried the tubular Frost heaters in their van. Was thinking of mounting it on the bulk head and leaving it there just to be plugged in when needed. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  12. I think if you run a 1500w oil filled radiator off a 110Ahr Leisure battery it will probably last 30 minutes. Probably not your best solution matey. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums
  13. Renting out a round

    Not VAT registered as I only work 8-10 days a month. Round not very compact but 85% pay online. And I charge a £1 a window. When I first started a friend said to me you can earn £400 a day. I didn’t believe him until one day went to work with him and I was gob smacked. Started 3 months later and my first gutter job I priced was a days work and charged the guy a days rate. Never looked back since. The problem is I have tried training people who want to do it the same way as me and never turned out successful. The reason is that it’s all to do with mentality. I had the mind set of making as much money in a day no matter how tiring it is, whatever the weather or if I’ve got the man flu so that I get 21 days of a month give or take off. It’s never been about the money really I’m just buying my time back. People I’ve trained in the past think all about the money and get disappointed when they don’t reach that, then get disheartened and naturally slow down doing £200 a day, everyday, whining about how busy they are and can’t go on holiday. Blah blah blah. Sorry gone on a bit, wife bought me a nice single malt and I have tucked into it. Forums and alcohol should be a no go. Sent from my iPhone using Window Cleaning Forums

    If the work means that much to you and depending on how far you moving away you could WFP that amount of work in 3 days max if priced correctly. Then find a good mate to crash with for 2 nights and Bobs your uncle. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
