    Will be looking to buy a new Gardiners SLX pole in the next few weeks, What Pole/ Gooseneck combo would you recommend for the 2nd storey window up in the roof, Its set back in the roof slightly aswell as needing to clear the guttering.

    My guess would be 30'. Can't see how far back the top window is, but you could stand further back and straighten your brush to get to it. It would mean having to have more length on your pole rather than a deeper neck.

    I thought a 30 would do it Tuffers But would rather try and do it with the pole being more upright.

    A 25ft SLX with 10" carbon gooseneck would be my choice for that window.

    It was for a client with exactly these type of windows that I had made the very first SLX pole, which was only made as a 25ft pole. It was designed for my domestic round and I had several clients with roof-set dormer windows and a 25ft with gooseneck would just reach them and still be light enough to use all day on the rest of my domestic work.

    I've got the Gardiners 25" Carbon, it is brilliant on any Dormer or set back windows. You could stand at the front door and clean that window with an Slx25.

    I clean windows similar to that photo. I use a 30' pole with a Gardiners long angle adaptor (about 10cm at a guess).
