    I will post more pictures of the decking once it has had two coats of clear decking oil to finish it off, it should look good.

    Do you always use a whirlaway on decking?

    Got to be careful using a whirlaway on higher pressure as I've found out as can leave spin marks in the wood like show in your pics. I personally prefer now to use a vario nozzle set at a wider angle to wash with the grain on lower pressure after pre-spraying & scrubbing with deck cleaner.

    I've just seen the after pics of that decking in your gallery and must say it looks great job. Well done :Image9:

    Did it take you long to do?

    when I used my 12 inch fsc on block paving it didn't seem to get deep enough clean, is this the norm if drive way etc is too dirty. ended up using turbo instead, took me longer than I thought it would with not using fsc. what I just paid £245 for.

    I did say in other posts fsc's are no good on block paving so could have saved your money
