    Hi All,

    I'm a newbie and am looking at starting cleaning with trad on a pole (upperfloors) and trad as normal lower floors. domestic and shop fronts only.

    I have been doing my own house for a while like this after finding my long standing windy was only doing half the upstairs windows.

    Thought about making my own wfp but I live in a very hilly area with lots of steps and walls and I find this set up is easier to handle/carry.

    Any advise greatly appreciated.

    I mostly use a 12" with sock for the pole and a range of sizes as normal for the lower floors

    Or......insert a piece of cable-tie each end between channel and rubber.
    Does the same job and less wear on the corners of the rubber :Image9: .

    I'm sorry Boarcity, but it doesn't take any longer than learning to use a 'normal' squeegee.
