  • When did you start window cleaning?
    10years ago
  1. Literally sounds like the week I've had... Pacing the house getting increasingly furious about the fact everythings been frozen solid all week. I'm now a week behind with work and was enjoying a nice lie in on Saturday when my wife woke me up to tell me my outside tap decided to sheer off and was ******* all over the place. Got it all replaced on Saturday and now I'm ready to get out there!!! IS there any issues using equipment with ice floating on the top as long as you don't run the tank say below a quarter full?
  2. Not all heroes wear capes! What a fantastic creation/idea. I'd be interested in buying all the parts so I'd literally just have to fit it. nothing worse than it getting stuck and pulling the whole reel over on its side!
  3. And so it begins...

    Same as me, I always used the 'Frames and sills cleaned free of charge' as a huge selling point. It also meant I could charge more than other windies in the area because I'd say 'that includes the frames, sills and everything'. Customer gets a great looking clean and I get paid more. no brainer if you're up at the window anyway.
  4. Feeling like taking the leap

    fantastic post Kevin and great advice, I would also factor into how big you are wanting to take your business eventually. I've always had a temperamental back that causes me to have a few days off a year so my vision was to always have people working for me in the end in case my back gets bad enough that I can no longer work. The first couple of years was hard graft, working Saturdays, losing money from underpricing etc. etc. I now have built a good local reputation and have 2 lads working for me and whilst I'm still working 6days a week I feel my business is finally starting to turn and hopefully in the near future I can be a bit more flexible with my hours. Obviously though with employing other people that brings with it a whole new set of potential issues and stress!
  5. Wfp all equipment needed!

    If you have the customer base already you may be better off going traditional for 6months and then using the money to get whatever equiptment you need. :)
  6. Says is no longer for sale. Guess you sold it?
  7. Really odd how this seems to differ, I have ordered a ctek smart 5A charger as I liked the O rings and the easy click in system so I don't have to remove my battery. Will be interested to see how long my battery lasts once its fully charged.
  8. One last question, I'm looking at a leisure battery charger and wondering whether to get a 5, 10 or 20A one. I have a Numax 105AH leisure battery. I want to look after the battery but I also don't want it to take 20hours to charge.
  9. Thoughts about putting a solar panel on top of the van or would that just not give enough power? http://www.photonicuniverse.com/en/catalog/full/185-100W-12V-solar-charging-kit-10A-controller-5m-cable-for-camper--caravan--boat.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIw-XT0--Q2AIV0hXTCh0TrQaOEAQYBiABEgLt7vD_BwE
  10. Morning all, its pretty crazy how everyone seems to get such different results. The fact that some people struggle to do a full 2 days without bench charging and other people managing to rely solely on the relay.
  11. SOrry for bringing this up when there are other threads and thanks for the replies. Is it fair to say the. That the relay is pretty pointless having if I’m doing local lists within a 5 mile radius?
  12. Perfect thank you very much. :)
  13. Hi all, After about 20mins of Work this morning my water shut off and the pump was saying the leisure battery was flat. i have the battery on a relay to the van battery and I had to finish the rest of the day with my van idling so I could work. i have read another forum on here and it seems like it’s normal for everyone to have to charge their leisure battery every few nights? I wasn’t told this when I bought the system, I’ve been using it for 8weeks with no issues so far other than it did this a few weeks back and I tightened up the battery connections and it seemed to resolve the issue. Any help with what is happening would be appreciated as I don’t have a clue about battery’s, relays or alternators! my colleague has also been having this same issue but after the alternator went he had it replaced and he’s had no issues since.
  14. I like the idea of the smell 😂 and also I like the idea of customers being able to see bubbles so it’s gives the effect that we’re actually using cleaning product as many of my customers are still dubious about the fact I’m ‘just spraying it with water and leaving it’ the only concern I have about the foam is as Smurf mentioned it is hard to see any bits left particularly on cons roofs.
  15. Hi all, sorry for reviving this 3yr old post from the grave but what was the outcomes with vision? Are you all still using it? I’m new to the whole wfp system after finally switching over from traditional.
