    Right then I've done a few gutters and conny roofs and I have quite a few booked in the next few weeks, I've always cleaned them using pure water but I want to start doing them with tap water, do you guys use your normal pole and hose linked to a tap then flush it out at the end with pure water or do you use a different pole and hose?

    no on conservatory roofs i aways use pure water, especiallyon the glass ones. that way it wont leave any marks when it drys like tap water would do.

    or if they are really bad, i had one that i gave a wash down with the customers hose then washed it all again in pure water.

    also not all people have outside taps, so you would still have to use your own water.

    If they don't have an outside tap then the price will be a bit higher ;)

    I use tap water, If it glass, I clean it with pure water but only after its been cleaned with tap water first.
