    Hi,

    I am looking at and interested in this system, basically for upper windows and conservatories, as the kit i have for conservatories is not great a car brush system, thats cheap. I am a newbie so looking for somthign that is easy to use and not to expensive. Also somthing that filters etc all in one like this system, I have spoke to someone whom uses one and he says it does him fine and no complaints at all and its really good, its not the best but leaves windows looking fine.

    This is why I am posting here, as I really want to get some info form you guys whom no what your talkign about.

    I am after a system like this, a one sto shop thing, that does all the filtering etc, so i can just put hose on and go, filling with tap water etc.

    Also are there any places where I can locate one 2nd hand?

    What are your recommendations please for some on starting out whom wants it all in one like this system and ready to go. IN the future I can learn and build a better kits etc..

    Price is key, so looking for a good deal on somthign thats good to use.

    Thank you to anyone whom replies.

    There is a thread on here on how to make your own system on a trolley......

    scottie you would be better buying a backpack from gardiners pole systems,a cheap foldable trolley.you could get these 4 £100.also a di vessel and resin so u can produce your own water,depending if u live in a hard or soft water area.again not much over 150,some barrels and a decent pole and brush.there was a link 2 a harris pole conversion kit not long ago.that brush looks horrid.

    Cheers guys, looks like I will scrap that one and seems I can do it miles cheaper to.

    In short I want somthign to to top windows only and I will trad bottoms unless leaded.

    Ok, is there a all in one system for sale or 2nd hand or a place online where you cna buy a all in one system that filters the water etc like the ashby does, just really want somthign that does that and save me doing all the work in getting pure water for now.

    OR what would you recommend me buy either new or 2nd hand that is good for the wfp job and a complete set up to buy. I am new to it all so want a full set up eithe rnew or 2nd hand really so i can just get on with it and either have pure made like the ashby way if there are others out there or a trolley and wher ei have to make the pure but i have it all brought ready to make, hope i make sense.

    I am not the best at MR DIY stuff, just dont graspe it liek some of you folk, so go easy lol.

    Really appriciate your time to reply.

    Scottie....you did say 'Price is Key'....so do the above if you don't fancy making DIY Trolley.

    Also...some customers can be a bit funny if asking to use their water for you to purify on site to clean their windows.
