    I went to collect money for a job I did yesterday. I looked at the windows and noticed spotting. I thought possibly because it had rained this morning and that had caused it. I took a look all round the house and spotting was evident on nearly all downstairs windows. I felt that I had to go over them again as I couldn't leave them in that state. Maybe I didn't rinse enough?

    My TDS is 001PPM.

    Anyone else had issues?

    If you rinse more you are only putting more of that mix on the glass surely?
    I would also imagine the stronger the dose and the higher the tds level is the more chance of spotting will occur.
    I had spotting issues too when testing it out on my own windows but not had any complaints with spotting from customers thus far. I'm still not convinced adding stuff to a tank of pure is a good idea so only time will tell as if it starts to lose me work I will be having a few words with the supplier for sure :D

    Only runs out of manky seals, which I'm on top of. Just going to run over my front windows and have a look when dry in the morning.

    Tuffers I'm using half the dosage now , instead of getting 4 barrels out of a pump of vision , I'm now getting 8 . I'm mixing 1 pump with 200ml them putting 25ml into each barrel ... I'm was getting mixed results so I've slowed down a little ....

    Not added any to tonight's tank fill. I've just gone over my downstairs windows. I rinsed one set and didn't rinse the other set, just to compare. Will have an inspection in the morning.

    What mixed results were you getting Natty?

    My brush was gliding over the glass too well . Was leaving dirt on the glass , I might of being working too fast , but I found this mix my brush sticks to the glass better,,,,

    I've not found that my brush glides across the glass that quickly tbf. What benefits are you getting from Vision?
