    I wasn't meaning a clx was not a good pole but tile grit can damage/wear out sections of the pole you use for window cleaning. :D

    It's so easy to do as when you scrape the debris back you then have to hand ball it out so if you have dirty hands when shorten or lengthen the pole tile grit & crud gets on the sections causing it to get trapped in the clamps. I either have to keep taking my rubber gloves off or wipe them with a damp rag which I've found alot quicker to do.

    Speaking of gutter cleaning i tried a new method today, it worked a treat

    Put my sill brush on, spun it so it was inline with the pole, made sure the downspout was clear then turned the water on and pushed it along the gutter flushing everything down the spout. No more sliced knuckles for me boys wooo hooo :laugh:

    I like your thinking if there is not much crud in the gutters :thumbsup:

    The job I did on Sunday I could not use a pole as was ali gutters with internal brackets that was full with crud. Some parts I did by hand clearing the downspout leaft guards and removing bad vegitation/sods. The rest I did by guttervac either up the ladder using a crevice tool or by guttervac pole. I ended up emptying the guttervac twice on that one.
