  1. I made this video about a year ago but it's not been up for a while as I have been revamping my Youtube. I thought I would share it again so that any noobs starting up or those struggling a little right now will have an insight as to how it was for some of the more established lads on here. Not always a bed of roses.
  2. I made this video some time back but took it down when I revamped my channel on Youtube. Hope there's some information you can use here.
  3. 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.

  7. Hot water FIT conversion

    So the van I am currently using is a cold one man system. Two things are in my mind. 1: winter's coming 2: I have some schools over half term that are minging and hot will be a big advantage. Now I know nothing about diesel or LPG conversions so please don't ask. What I do know is that cheap portable Propane shower heaters work really well. So that's the plan. Fit a DIY unit. Now this will be the 3rd one of these I have done so when all the parts arrive in the next few days i will do a real time video to show how simple it is to do in 30 min or less. For now here's the shopping list. Heater Hose. Regulator (this time I went with one with a guage to make any potential trouble shooting easier. Big azz spanner - you need this size to fit the regulator. With the exception of some PTFE tape and a couple of jubilee clips that's pretty much it. Including the propane bottle all in under £150. Video to follow as soon as parts are in stock.
  8. Using squeegee

    Hi. I have found someone who is willing to take me on as a trainee, how long on average does it take to learn how to use a squeegee? The company is aware that I basicallly have no experience. I've tried for the past couple of days on my own house windows to master the "s" method, thanks to youtube, but I always leave some watermarks down the side, or the occasional streak because of the rubber blade hitting the window edge. I'm worried that I won't get the hang of it once I start working for this company, its way harder than it looks, it's so frustrating!! Thanks Brice
  9. 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.

  15. 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?

  19. Hi guys After the replies and advice from my first post, I have decided to go ahead and get in a bit of practise on before I look for a trainee window cleaning job. So what equipment does a commercial window cleaner have in their arsenal? Like scrims, cloths, wet or dry? I'll buy an applicator and squeegee online, I was thinking ettore. What size squeegee do you think to start off? Thanks Bricie
