    A bit of hose reel advice

    Hi guys. New here. I have a WFP system with Gardiner pole. Tank, pump, resin in the van etc. My question is what hose you guys run on your reels? My pole is light but my hose is heavy, i want the lightest hose I can get but is still durable eg dragging around and getting run over by cars when its across the street. Seen some 6mm code red microbore? Yey or nay? Also will having a thinner hose affect pressure? Im guessing not. Thanks

    IBC tank advice

    Been offered a 1000 litre IBC tank that was used to store that vaping juice for £25.00 tank is immaculate. Tank will be used as storage and not put into my van. question being how would i clean it out? would it just be the case of filling and flushing with water, or would i need an additive (possibly counter productive).
  3. Hi guys, I'm looking for a bit of advice on a leak I've found in my van system. I bought the van and system second hand (all already installed by pure freedom when I purchased the van). I started up around 6 weeks ago, prior to starting out I took a trip over to Pure freedom to be shown my way around the system, whilst there pre filters, ro membrane and resin was all changed. Each time after filling recently I have noticed a build up of water in the van so tonight i took some time to source the leak. It appears to be coming from the pre filters at the top. I did also notice just over a week ago that one of the pre filters was hissing from button which sits at the top (not sure if this is linked to the leak, i pressed the button until all air was out and the hissing stopped) this happened towards the back end of the cold weather we have had. Can anyone give advice on what this could be, apologies if its a common question but I couldnt find a similar topic on the forum. Hoping its a cheap fix 🙈 Thanks in advance guys Jon

  5. I decided to make a shorter one off video as the other thread I did with three separate videos was a bit jumbled so hopefully this one makes a bit more sense.
  6. Your Real Name: Allan The Location You're In: Surrey How Long You Have Been Cleaning: 5 months Brief intro about yourself: Started window cleaning with a friend but we went our separate ways a few months back and I have been enjoying the hot weather and slowly building my round. Hope to contribute to this forum and I have had a look around and some great topics. I hope to double my round in the next six months it's a struggle at times but nothing comes easy. I started with WFP but I have found myself going back to traditional cleaning but the WFP is great at getting the grime off on a first clean. It's just my preference. I also do cleaning offices etc. All my best Allan

  8. So I'm now running almost 100% WFP for my upstairs work - bar flat roofs etc but that means I'm now using about 6L of resin a week with my Unger HiFlo DI filter (1 replacement bag a week - it's giving me about 450-500L of pure water per change) I've been browsing online but am a little confused by installing an RO filter at home - obviously will save me £110 a month on resin but I'm confused how it 'works' without a van?... How do you hook it up? Does it have to be plumbed into your main water? I'm only renting so I don't want to start building it up under the sink. What I would ideally like (if it's even possible) is to be able to just run an EZ snap or hozelock from my kitchen tap into the RO filter then back out the other end into the DI filter when I need to fill up my barrels and then unplug and put it back in the cupboard when I'm done. Guess the burning question is, can I do this?? Or am I stuck just smashing through the Unger bags until I can build up a water butt and plumb it into the mains water?
  9. What is the worst price job u have done? Or worse quote from a customer? Made me think other day as remembered customer asked me to quote for glass roof porch I said call it £5 she oh no thought it would be 50p!!!! I just laughed

  11. Hi Everyone 👋🏼 I have been reading this forum for a while now, and I’ve got a huge interest in window cleaning but haven’t had the b#### to go ahead YET! 👍🏼 great forum!! Im sick and tired of my job (long hours, **** pay etc) I really would like to work for myself and start up a successful window cleaning company. I’m 35 years old and I want another Crack at the whip, currently my salary is 27k. It sounds like a very rewarding business, and love the fact that nearly everyone on this site as a passion for their business. Obviously you get your chancers in the game, but I would like to go with the professional approach what I have been reading on here, ie) logo, business cards, leaflets, uniform, sign writing van, marketing campaigns etc (sounds like I am being ambitious, but to work for yourself and earn proper money, you have to I guess) There is so much valuable information on here and it’s like a back bone for the professionals. Ideally I would like to get into the WFP side of things. As I think me and the ladders just won’t get on, and by the sounds of it, it’s the future for the window cleaning industry? I have bought some trad gear already, ie) bucket, 12” squeege , applicator, micros, clothes, & scraper. I have been practising on my windows and watching you tube videos. (Wagga) - I take it this is a good learning curve Would anyone be able to help me out with a few of these questions? WFP - to start, would you recommend a trolley (pure freedom) or a back pack? How many houses would 25l containers do? Roughly Can I purchase the water rather than making this -seems complicated? (Will have to read up on this a bit more) When canvassing for work, and you get the nod to clean their windows, when would you do their first clean? That day/next day? How do you manage the round? With new customers etc. Because obviously starting out around my full time job ideally you would want to do the new customers the same day? Company name? Thoughts. something that’s quirky, or stick to something like JB WINDOW CLEANING SERVICES? what works best? Don’t want to run before I can walk, and jump in the deep end - but a van? It will be quite daunting competing with other window cleaners in the local area and I’m a newbie. Would that put new potential customers off? Should I buy second hand WFP gear to start (budget wise) or go straight in. What kind of budget would you say for leaflets, website, business cards, WFP etc. Currently got 1k left over from a loan as a starting point. I’ve got 100s of questions and I’m sure il bombard you with them and go through the forum looking for answers. Ps. Hopefully you don’t bombard me with “another new window, here we go” 🙄🙄 Thanks all. Why as this come out so big? 😱 @Gav
  12. Hi all I am looking to add on a window cleaning service as an addition to our current domestic and commercial cleaning business. A few of our customers have asked for the service, which me being naive thought the usual cliche of "window cleaning would not be worth the hassle VS the return on investment". Well all i can say after spending the weekend on and off this forum is how wrong could i be. We would be looking to initially add WFP using the gardiner backpack and poles with the aim of providing our customers with the add on during their cleaning service, eventually (HOPEFULLY) building up rounds and having the window cleaning as a sort of separate entity with a full van setup. A reason for me posting (before we setup) is the "this is my patch" and pro green i have seen you video on the matter (among alot of your other videos *great work*) and you say it does not exist anymore. Well our business is based in south wales, SWANSEA, and having spoke to friends and family about the idea the first thing that comes up is "So So has a patch around here and he does not mess about" Now i know the advise would be patches do not exist any more and any problems let the old bill know, but i would be interested to see if there are any members from Swansea on this forum that could advise on * do they find there is enough work, in and around Swansea to even consider the long term goal of getting a van setup or am i just better off sticking with the initial idea of servicing our current domestic and commercial cleaning customers. * have they run into the "my patch" on their rounds. I will add that our main goal for the business is to be a one stop shop for customers who want all aspects of their property cleaned, But the i do like the idea of eventually having the window cleaning as a separate entity. Any advise would be much appreciated Regards Craig
