  1. Hi all. Can I just say, since I set up a set up a system in my van purifying my own water, moving away from the trolley system, this forum has been an invaluable source of advice. So, attached is a photo of the two membranes from my 2nd hand Merlin RO system. I’ve ordered two new ones. I’ve never seen a used membrane before, do these two look shot???? They are producing 280ppm from mains to 45ppm. Thanks in advance
  2. Hi all. I’ve attached a photo of my van setup. It’s my first van mounted system. Im purifying the water in the van.

It consists of 250 litre tank, Merlin RO (behind tank), 11 litre DI, Booster pump, shurflo pump/controller, external fill/drain connectors.
  3. The lads at The Cleaning Warehouse home of the Water Genie range sent me an email last night to enter their prize draw for a Titan 30ft Carbon Pole. Having used this it's a pole I'd be happy to own. They are raffling it off with a just giving page to raise money for dementia something many of us are more than familiar with. My mother was a nurse in a dementia care home for over 20 years before retirement. My wife did 6 years as a care assistant in a care home for dementia and most personally my Grandmother, someone that has know me for 46 years now does not recognize

  6. So I've been a traditional windowcleaner for over 15 years with my dad. He's getting close to retiring so I'm looking more and more into WFP and trolley systems. I've read a lot about them, but with so many to choose from and so many extensions and extras, ive got no idea where to start. Complete novice who's still working out what a DI vessel is. The round is all residential, very compact work with about 700 houses every 6 weeks. I have a little bit of money saved in preparation and I'm also so willing to buy a van but need some pointers. Is th
  7. This is a basic video explainer I did back in the summer to help customers perhaps understand the benefits of WFP and the differences between WFP and Trad window cleaning. It has worked really well for me on my facebook page and if you want to share it on your pages as an explainer for your customers please feel free to do so. Hope it's of some use to someone.
  8. 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 usi
  9. Hi guys, I've been working out the back of my surprisingly reliable L200 Warrior for about 3 years now and have recently put a 280L baffled tank in the pickup bed. Notably, this has taken up significant space, but I am comfortably able to store my pump box, separate battery, wfp, hose & reel, and loose essentials within the remaining space. Given the available remaining space, I reluctantly use a hozelock reel (metal + plastic) that is anchored to the tailgate at all times. I've been getting a fair amount of leaking lately and can't seem to figure out where my problem

  11. I've just started using the water fed pole on my window cleaning round and was wondering if anyone has tried adding a key fob remote to turn the pump on and off? Was it easy to add?
  12. I have got a couple of quotes out for softwashing some 9m high painted houses. I currently have a 22ft pole that isn't up to the job and was thinking about a Gardiner SLX 39 with a benz nozzle to give me a bit of extra should something even larger come along. Apart from washing down the pole after use is there anything else I should do to try and keep the pole in good condition despite the hypo exposure?

  15. First time posting in the forum and just starting to look into soft washing. I see WFP's being a great piece of equipment for soft washing and to start i was thinking of using one with a backpack sprayer, as i don't want to invest a ton of money in a big system then find it isn't for me. Go easy if these are some stupid questions. Is a backpack a good idea for a beginner? Will it provide enough pressure to reach 2/3 stories? If so, How do i connect a WFP to a backpack sprayer? Will i need adapters? Certain connectors? Thanks.
  16. Hey guys, so ive just bought a "Super-Scraper" from gardiner, the type 1 for plastic goosenecks, I noticed it doesn't work well getting things like paint specks and really anything worse than bird crap, has anyone used the type 2 for carbon/aluminium goosenecks and is that good for getting paint off? If not does anyone know of any scrapers I can attach to my gardiner pole (CLX-27) that would work on tougher stuff? thanks

    I'm investing in a wfp system and would like an answer in regards to some people iv heard of who use tanks outside to sort out the water purification and then pump it into the van tank why is that and do you still use resin as I assumed the actual system did that all in the van after filling the tank with normal tap water?

    Ro/di units

    Hi all, I've been traditional cleaning for about a year now and recently I've been looking at building my own wfp trolley, seen some good tutorials on here. My question is to do with the Ro and Di units, I understand how they work and what they are for but I'm having some confusion with where I put them, would I fit them inside my van leading to a large tank from which I fill up my trolley? Or on my trolley so I can take water from the large tank purify it as it goes in to my smaller trolley tank. Also I live in a hard water area do I need both Ro and Di units? Cheers
  21. 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 lo

  23. Pole systems are great and offer many advantages to us window cleaners but over time carbon fibre, (composite and fibreglass) poles do begin to wear. Our poles are constantly being tightened in the same places and eventually this means the clamps no longer work properly which can be very frustrating and potentially dangerous (damage to windows and property) Poles are expensive items and we need to get the most use possible from them. So any way of extending the working life of a pole is a good thing and will bring long term savings on equipment costs. To solve
