  1. Could really do with some help please - I have a Shurflo 8000-946-138 connected to a tank in my van and a Varistream controller. Installed it last week and today it suddenly stopped working. Thought it may have been an air lock but checked all my connections and the water is flowing up to the pump but isn't being pulled through. Pump is going and Varistream shows power is ok but it simply isn't flowing - any help or suggestions please?

    Traditional versus WFP

    Hi all I'm 52 and have been laid off work. I'm considering going back on the windows after 35 years out of the game. Other than cost of setting up what are pro and cons of WFP compared to traditional cleaning for a born again cleaner

Heres the link - https://www.lewiscleaningco.co.uk/blog-cheltenham-gloucester/2018/1/20/our-best-window-cleaning-tips-for-interior-cleaning-cheltenham
  5. Hello my water is entering my tank in my van at a tds of 28. I then use a di filter on board to produce pure on demand however the tds is ready 3-4? And advice on this? Thanks.
  6. Hello everyone, I have recently decided to add window cleaning to my already existing cleaning buisness! I live in a hard water area and as I'm just starting out I haven't invested in a RO system! Instead I'm collecting rainwater to filter through a di tank fitted in my van. My problem is I have rigged up my downpipe into an Ibc with a mesh filter at the end of the spout but there is still some amount of sediment in the ibc! I don't want to damage my pump or di tank so how can I pre filter this water before I pump it into the on board tank in my van? Im going to be using a sump pump for transfer or the rain water. I'm looking for any advice from people with more experience in rain water harvesting! Any advice will be appreciated, Thanks.
  7. Sorry if I have posted this in the wrong place. So I have worked with a friend for over a year now doing the traditional way. Now I'm feeling ready to go my own way. At the moment, I have a lease with Toyota, I own the aygo. This car is not appropriate for window cleaning (poles or traditional) because it is too small. So I am looking for advice on what Toyota car is the best for ladders and poles. (I can only stick with Toyota because I'm still in a lease agreement with them for another 2 years.) On top of this, regarding the poles, is it better to get the trolley or a big tank to put in the back? I really need a car rather than a van as not enough seats and as I'm just starting up on my own, I can't afford anything too costly. So to sum up, I need a Toyota car that I can fit ladders too legally as well as a big enough boot (potentially back seats that fold completely flat) to fit either a large tank, or the trolley with 6 (?) tanks of water. So with all that, the car has to be able to handle the weight. As an extra question, there's lots of brands for the equipment for traditional (unger etc), what is the top of the range brand I can invest in?

  9. hello guys, Just wondering if anyone could spare some time on answering the questions for me, would be much appreciated. What do you need to start up in terms of equipment? How much will the start up fees be? Do you need a Waterfed pole? Are there any alternatives to this? What method would you recommend using? Will it require training? If so can you send us any links or instructions? How much is the general rate? How much is the general rate for a standard 4 bedroom house? How long does a standard 4 bedroom house take? Best ways to market? What local advertisement can you use? How do you maintain your clients? Do you offer monthly subscriptions?
  10. HI there, I have had a potential commercial customer approach me to carry out monthly work on his business premises but he said my business would have to be VAT registered. I am however under the threshold and don't wish to voluntarily register any time soon. Has anyone else been asked this and is there a way round it as the job is a rather good one and I don't want to miss out on a job. Thanks!
  11. Hi all, I'm starting up window cleaning from next month! I've got all the equipment apart from ladders! I'm unsure about what size ladders to get. I dont have a car so i'll be walking around with them. I've been looking at Lyte Trade Ladders, specifically these two: Lyte Trade ELT230 Double Extension Ladder 10 Rungs Max. Height 4.88m OR Lyte Trade ELT235 Double Extension Ladder 12 Rungs Max. Height 5.94m Im leaning towards the ELT230 but im sacred incase i need to get a taller set of ladders. Any advice? :confused:
  12. Hi all I've just bought a reach and wash business and I've been doing it for around 2 months now. I'm 21 and just starting out so I'm apreciative of all advice. Basically I have had no problems with my existing customers as they have been cleaned by reach and wash for 6 years. I've picked up some new work and every new clean I do I get complaints regarding spotting on the windows. I'm running out of ideas as I scrub well and rinse thoroughly. I have a vikan pole and fat boy backpack my water is at 0.01 ppm.
  13. I purchased a wagtail and fitted it with a liquidator 14 inch channel and razr rubber I also have a standard hamdle with a 10 inch liquidator channel with the black rubber it came with. When using the wagtail combo, i just cant get it to work. Constantly leaving streaks or water in the middle of the window and loads around the edge in small areas. Im just not getting the benefits im meant to. Ive tried more soap/less soap, more water, holding it at different angles, different pressures etc etc. Sometimes I have a good window but all too rare. Im wondering if the razr rubber is good in scotland at this time of year? Have i put the channel in at the right angle(looks ok)?, Are the end clips bent in enough(ive tried a lot of different angles)? I definitely see a difference with the 10 inch and normal handle and blacl rubber but again im not getting the benefit that im meant to with the liquidator.
