    You can use any chemical, then just clean the same way you would a window, you can use normal water to start with, but be prepared to use a lot of pure!!

    As long as it's not self cleaning glass. Something like Ecover can be used on self cleaning, but I wouldn't risk using chems.

    It's best to scrub all the bad :turd: off. It also helps to rinse on the glass while scrubbing and drag the dirt down with the brush as you go. You will waste a lot of water tring to rinse off the glass. Tap water is fine to use as long as you finish off with pure.

    Normally use customers hose to get the worst off, then carry on with pure at the end, it's horrible doing glass roofs! More and more dirt seems to seep out the seals at the top, it's frustrating work, but you'll get there!

    If you have it nice and clean and well rinsed down with tap water then you should only need as much pure as you would on a 'normal clean'
