    Hi there,

    I got a job to clean this persons conservatory roof, he said use a jet washer, but am thinking it will be too powerful??

    So anyway I brought myself a 5lt pump from B&Q for £20 (Verve) and virosol £15 it total, and I have a wfp which connects to outdoor tap.


    I hope this works, will take pictures nxt fri before and after if it does work, bit sceptical because never done this before.

    Delevery for virasol anyone know? (Cleaning warehouse)

    Spent £35 in total and quoted £45 so after this one if I get anymore then ill be making more profit, obvs still gotta buy virosol every nown again.

    I use a pressure washer on conservatory roofs but I check all possible places where it can leak, major factor to consider is how old it is. Also ask the people if they have ever had any leeks when theres been a bad storm (wind & rain )

    You could just pressure wash the top white part. Then clean the rest with a WFP.

    Ive only had 1 roof leak out of... I lost count.

    the manufacturers warn people not to use powerwashers on connys as they can damage the seals and cause leaks
