    I am just starting out and set up my own business. I would like to invest in a new van a 750l full RO system two operators . The companies I am looking at are WCW which offers facelift, Xline and pure2o. My preferred unit at the moment is pure 20 but just wanted to get thoughts or opinions on this from experienced window cleaners. Thanks in advance

    Av a look at there prices then go on eBay and find

    750 tank. ( this can be fitted professionally using a car body repair shop )
    4040 RO and filters
    2 x 11ltr di bottles
    2 x pumps and controllers ( I don't bother with controllers just a switch )
    Few metres of hose for each set up
    2 x hose reels with hose
    Maybe Battery and a bit of wiring ( I run off van battery )
    That's pretty much it

    X-line have the worst customer service there is. Lovely systems but try getting an answer from them once you have had it installed and driven off.

    Ask Trev81 I believe he has an X-line

    X line customer service utter rubbish bought a brush from them had it 4 hours working brush head foooked emailed them with PIC of brush head they replied back week later saying looks like its been in a hedge trimmer and have never seen this before on our brushes (well it is picture to prove) let me know how you get on with it.
    No offer of a replacement I sent a message back guess what no reply and trying to get answer on phone beyond a joke.
    I just threw brush away and will never use them again and got Gardiner instead

    For me personally I rate and recommend GrippaTank.
    These tanks handle very well in the back of the van are purpose built,fully baffled,securely fitted and crash tested.
    Grippa are also backed by Gardiners and operate the same level of customer service which is excellent.

    I only do commercial work and find that running the pump at full speed giving me as much water on the glass as possible, I did start out with controllers but as time went by just got rid.

    Am doing a job at the minute were am running 2 pumps into 1 hose, water then travels through 150m of normal hose going up the building, along the roof and then into 100m of 8mm hose, am about 70 ft from ground level, but the water pressure is still good enough to shift the green algae and moss.
    To save messing about spraying the surface up with chemicals, I have disconnected my di bottles ( and put a y piece off 2 hose ends ) and run it direct to hose, am then adding chemical to my tank so it's now coming out the brush head onto surface as I clean
    Tank will just get a good rinse and pressure washed before getting back on normal windows
