    Facebook page.....yay or nay???

    I started back in January on my own and my Facebook page is where all my work has come from and recommendations. I use the buy and sell sites a lot and that's worked well for me. Check it out tell me what you think. https://www.facebook.com/AJCleaningSolutions1990/ Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Blocked unger jets

    I had replacements after they come back today thank god, but I drilled through them in the end with a tiny drill piece and it done the job. Apparently there's a manufacturing fault with those jets. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Blocked unger jets

    So I bought a unger nlite radius brush to start me off with water fed pole and there is nothing coming through the jets. They are plastic and think I've had dodgy jets anyone have any idea how I could unblock them? Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Unger hydropower.

    I bought the unger hydropower starter set after from wcw which cost me £489 with 30 foot pole and backpack. I thought £400.00 but Vat alone cost me 89 pound [emoji51][emoji51] its coming back today now so think I will have an experiment with it. Hopefully it will help me get more money in to get a proper set up. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  5. Hi all. I am going to invest in wfp system for some of my bigger houses as some of the windows I simply can't do alone therefore I am paying someone just to foot the ladder. I am thinking of getting this unger hydropower set along with a backpack to get me started as funds or low to invest into a van right now. Just curious as a few of the houses I got are fairly big three storeys which takes about an hour and half each one (traditionally) would it be still work the same if I connected to their outside tap as I understand with the backpacks I would constantly need to refill. Thanks in advance, Ash Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Cleaning front of house with hypo

    Yeah cheers mate I appreciate the help. I don't want to be messing around with it until I know exactly what I'm doing and safe with it. I know someone who just put it on a house neat and then was ill for days lol. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  7. I just ordered 20 litres of sodium hypochlorite off ebay and want to do the front of my house with it. I been looking for a video or article to help me out with safety of it because I live in a terraced street and after I wash it all off will on the pavement etc. Will it harm any pets or anything after I have washed rinsed it down, for example my neighbour has a dog and don't want the dog or anyone walking through it if it will harm them. I've never used it and heard positive things and negative things with it so just wanted to ask people who is generally experienced with using it. Thanks in advance Ashley.

    Employee nightmare

    Sounds awesome actually might give It a try. Don't know if any other window cleaners find this but i know a few boys who say it's hard to find good staff and keeping them. I think people see it as an easy job until they actually do it day in day out. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Employee nightmare

    I been working on the windows for 10 years so got plenty of experience and am well up too speed. Just because I been in business 3 months must mean I haven't done the job before?? To be honest I've shown and shown and there is no interest there and ain't the hard type in fact a pushover so therefore feel I'm being taken this **** out of because I still pay the same!! Oh yeah and when people only been doing half windows for some reason and customers complaining at me and I'm loosing sleep over it yeah why not give the kid a break.

  13. Sorry it I'm talking utter **** but ain't got a clue when it comes to water fed systems and all the technical stuff. Right so i have got the odd house here and there which is huge that I've picked up recently. I've started my business in January and it's gone crazy didn't realise how quickly it can pick up. Anyway long story short I need a water fed system for the odd house here and there however ain't got a van yet to install a water tank. Does it work the same if I connect the water outlet from outside to a di tank and to the pole. Going burn through my money to quickly I think if I go all out waterfed pole. Any help would be greatly appreciated lol [emoji2] Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
