    I'll have a search steve, I watched the gardiners video and i looks a useful little tool and cheap. probably worth having in the bag

    I might stretch to the SLX 25 then, thanks for the heads up on the bumper brush trim. Do you use Gardiners scraper tool for bird $h!t? I live quite close to the sea and they are everywhere. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Mark, that looks in perfect nick still. Glen i see what you mean about being able to get the sills, I don't want to be having to change brushes and things half way through a house.

    I was looking at the Gardiner brushes, the ultimate and extreme took my fancy. probably the extreme because of the lighness. How have you found there durability of the extreme? What degree are the reds? I never thought about the 45cm but it makes sense for doing the windows quicker.
  7. Hi Guys! Whats is your go to brush for domestic standard double glazed window with PVC trim?

    Right, well my water fed trolley equipment list has been ordered, so I'll be doing a DIY jobbie over the next few weeks. As for pole i was looking at a gardiner SLX, what length would i need for a Standard 2 story house with fascia cleaning too? What brush would you recommend, I was thinking the ultimate mixed. What size do you guys use? are pencil jets or fan best?

    Would this be the sort of wiring needed, obviously switches would have to be shut for power on. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Great stuff, I've just took the plunge and bought the items needed to make a decent trolley. Now all I need to do is learn how to put it all together haha!

    Looks great, im currently doing a self build trolley which will hopefully look similar. Do you have any photos of the wiring/internal placement? Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    These are all fair points, hopefully get all the kit and flyers next month and go knocking on a few doors. I think once I get my kit and have a practice on my own place and my mums if shes lucky, i'll get a better idea of timings. I'm thinking along the lines of £1 per minute on the job. I'll try to focus on getting houses in close proximity to cut the travel down too. When you got to a new customer do you provide a '1st' time wash where you try to get rid of any staining and paint blobs off the frames and sill? If so what are your got to methods and chemicals? Cheers

    Thanks guys, I was definitely looking for £10 plus for a 2 up & down. For payment do you guys push for direct debits or some other electronic payment, I think collecting would be a real pain?

    Hi Dave, It currently is 2 75GPD piggy backed, I'll defo get a large unit as the demand/number of clients increases. I'll have a 1000 litre IBC filled which should hopefully fill over the days off. Have you got any tips for attracting new clients? Cheers Greg
