    Just bought the unger Hilo nlite hybrid starter kit, filled the di as instructed off you tube & other videos.
    So I decided to do my house as a 1st try, not happy with the results, tds reading 0 ppm on meter as I compared it to my house tap which read 65 ppm.
    I have old windows at rear an new on front, both gave same results, if I start using it on customers houses I'm going to get a lot of complaints, with the water droplets left on glass, as I have a few new houses on sites that are on going the dust will quickly collect on glass thus leading to complaints, I tore my ankle ligament 2 months ago so using the ladder is something I want to stop doing, any advice would be appreciated.

    I'm using ecover on the brush for the majority of first cleans. Good idea as it makes you rinse more and also cleans the frames well.

    Will just be not enough rinsing or cleaned too quickly.
