  1. Yeah the whole house frames as well. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  2. Hi, I don't quote over the phone. Who knows if it's another windy checking your prices or someone looking to compare your price against another window cleaner. You also can't see what state there windows and frames are in. Guys on this forum started talking about charging double for first cleans, I thought no way people will pay that over here, until I tried it. I'm now charging between 1.5 or double if I think can get it. When I know the area/estate I have a fair idea how much to charge, then add on for conservatories/extension etc. I have 3 storey town houses I charge £12, I have bungalows with velux or dormers I get £7 for. 2 storey semi's I get £10. I have large detached houses in affluent areas I can get £30. My round is fairly compact and I work on monthly cycle. I tend to work out how long it will take me and factor in all of the above. Hope this helps. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Thanks@Skxawng you were spot on with the inline filter. I removed it put the controller on boost, changed a few connectors and flushed out the mother of all airlocks. I already have a strainer from the tank to the pump inlet. I was Probably overkill. Seems to be better than before. ( Touch wood) if you ever get the chance to take a picture of your set up I would be grateful. Thanks to all for the help. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Losing pressure

    Could be, pump must be at least 3 years old battery older. It's on a split relay and I'm part time at minute so I'm not sure it's had a hard life. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Losing pressure

    I've had lots of airlocks over the years I usually hold my finger on the outlet on the di vessel to force the airlock through. I cleaned the inline filter today and noticed housing was very cloudy. Will take out or replace tomorrow. Cheers Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    What's an impeller[emoji2]. I thought it might be the wiring but it looks fine. I thought it might be the battery but running the engine didn't make any difference. Could it be the pressure switch. Btw sorry for jumping on your post I was just replying to@tuffers Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Hi, I run 2 wfp off the same shurfo pump and variestream controller, not ideal I know but it's worked for years. Today I started to lose pressure. Only really noticed when the poles were fully extended. I run a di set up. The battery runs off a split relay. I thought it might be an air lock, checked all the connections. I lowered the pump and controller to force it through, this helps but when I raise it to it's normal spot the pressure dies. The pump btw isn't making any unusual noises.

  13. I know another windy who got a local mechanic who does welding to make him a frame. Just gave him the dimensions. Can't remember the exact cost but I know it was a fraction of the cost and that included the steel Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  14. I have fixed mine exactly like @andrewellis. Just cut a hole in the bulk head push the pipe through. It will act as an anchor point then thread heavy duty cable ties through the roof channel that houses the electrical cables. Sent using the Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
