    First things first....hi all

    I'm another noob looking to get into window cleaning this year has anyone used any of the facelift van mounted systems.
    I don't have a van as yet and it will be a 1man set up, I was looking for a simple somewhat integrated system..
    I came across the facelift compact, think it's coming out this month, it fits in with my budget. (£1000 ish ) as for a van I have no idea any alternative system advice welcome..

    I'm thought it looked good for a first set up FaceLift Compact 325
    That being said I'm a guy that likes reviews on things
    As for the pos and cons of it, some of the cons are bothering me...like after market service, if a problem developed with the controller facelift are in Wales

    Also being able to get the tds down to zero with it, I would be disappointed if I had to run water through another di into to the tank,inaffect daisy chaining

    You could get a full day out of that as long as you use something to shut of your water at the brush, aqua dapter, tap, one click etc

    Ah tx steve..another thing that is bothering me is the compact 325 is just a 1 di tank unit, now at the mo I live in Hertfordshire, but I'm down sizing to either North Norfolk or Lincolnshire this year thus I need something to pay the bills.

    I don't know what the water tds is up there looked at a few maps and it seems to be hard water the same as where I am now so my question is, will A 1 di system be able to cope and bring the TDS down to zero ..
