    Hi guys
    I clean trad but thinking about a backpack just for fascia and gutter cleaning are they worth having for just gutters and fascias tho. Was thinking if they are good going forward I could then add the extras slowly to be able to do Windows,
    Any advice much appreciated
    Thanks nig.

    They dont hold enough for doing windows without a refill every house and a half. They are good fir chem mixing and application for SFG. Then just connect to custys hose for rinsing off.

    For £90, what's the big risk? Go for it

    Thanks guys think I might invest in one I'll have a look at prices,
    I've got a Harris pole and pro gutter tools for inside the gutters and thinking the back pack will help the outside cleaning of them.

    Filling them up doesn't bother me, probably takes longer sometimes to move a van, reel, unreel, unsnag. I wouldn't prioritize cleaning facias, that's hard work if you want it clean windows instead and take on fascias if you want.
