    18ft poles pratcical reach

    I have a extreme 22, slx 22 and slx 18, my go to pole is the slx 18 although it's supposed to be the same weight as the extreme 22 it feels much lighter in working use in fact the slx 22 doesn't feel much heavier than the extreme so i don't think it was worth paying the substantial extra and the slx 22 will last longer so unless you're expecting to clean lots of 3 floor properties I'd go with that and in any case my 22 reaches the few 3 floor I have.
  2. I don't know if this has been covered, if it has I can't find it, interested to know how much water this Gadget uses opposed to internal jets and how much more with internal jets?

    Water shortage / Hot Weather

    Haven't read all the posts but I wouldn't presume we are exempt from any potential ban, if it gets worse who knows what can happen? it's nothing to do with a drought or a long spell of hot weather, the problem stems from that ever increasing Uk problem over population and demand.

    Waterfed pole spotting.

    You find that when you've used a chemical based detergent the brush slips better off the glass with the pure water this will give you an idea of how well the water is sheeting I just fill the chemical Backpack with customers garden tap water.

    Waterfed pole spotting.

    I use Virosol for first time cleans mixed in a Back Pack with water the same Back Pack is just used for Virosol, I then go over again and the Customer is charged double compared to a regular clean and that's cheap so I'll have to look at this as we pay a lot of attention to detail and it can take 1 and a half hours for a first clean, some suppliers invalidate Warranty's where chemicals are used in Back Packs but Back Packs and Pump Sprayers are designed to use Chemicals and I've had all 4 of mine for 3 years (same batteries and pumps). I tell my customers they will get good results first time and never put negative thoughts in their minds if you are thorough the glass will be clean no one can guarantee there will be zero spotting but we carry out new cleans every week and I get texts and calls complimenting us on our work.

    Gardiner backpack ?

    I've got a backpack that's soley used for Virasol it doesn't do any damage these backpacks are converted crop sprayers and are designed to use chemicals any advice to the contrary is an excuse by suppliers not to honour warranty's. Sent from my SM-A310F using Tapatalk
