    The owner of gym wants white facia cleaned down, as Google are going out to take pics or something..

    Anyway, I'm going to obviously backpack this Job and have really not used my backpack.

    Do I add anything to water? Any other tips?

    I will be cleaning windows after this so do I leave for half hour after wfp the facia and then hit the windows?

    It will suck you dry as there's so many bits and bobs to buy, it's a good idea to have 2 of everything that can go wrong while out on the job. Last week it felt like I was doing running repairs daily. The Hozelock connector onto my reel decided to keep popping off on Thursday and wouldn't stay on, luckily I had spares and I was up and running in seconds.

    Cheers tuffers am glad I'm tradding first tbh,think it's something I can at least rely on should wfp take some adapting.

    That backpack Is annoying though, if gona do it reckon just getting the van kitted out properly is the way forward.

    If you can i would clean the cladding with tap water to save on pure
    Leave for long enough to stop dripping then do windows with pure or trad them

    I have connectors and hose to hook up to custy's tap, but there is a lack of pressure I find and you can't get as good a flow of water as your system gives you.
