    If I pick up a new customer and i am running low on water I usually use tap water from the customers house. I usually crank the flow up and use a bit of ubik.

    Once I have done the whole house. I then re clean using pure water.

    You will be surprised how little spotting you get with tap water and ubik.

    Been experimenting for some time with additives and you will be surprised with what you PPM you can clean with!

    Hmmmmmm tbh we do all first cleans at weekend now, aint got the time mid week. Picked up three new customers today and another van picked up two. The customers think we are mad to come back when we are cleaning next door. But under a lot of pressure at the moment. new Work is not slowing down and gutter season is kicking off. My dad will be off the round for two weeks while we sort the gutters already booked in.

    Was supposed to be having a bash at canvassing tomorrow but at the moment, just too busy.

    Not moaning tho :)
