    i regularly use chloras , its brilliant on stubborn stains , dont let it next or near glass as it can permanently etch the glass and i believe a nightmare to get off , it can be got in your local farming suppliers or co op , ive never used it on a slate roof as id be afraid of it bleeching the slates , id recommend testing it in a discreet area before using on tiled roofs

    reason im asking is when i brought my fsc the man who sold it me was saying he was having problems with sealants so as a alternative he now uses fungicide wash he gave me the name but iv since forgot as this was a while back iv tried a few since but not much good, when iv previously used it i have done so according to the instructions on the link (diluted sprayed on area then washed off) but the guy i was speaking to said he cleans the area then sprays fungicide on and leaves it to dry he offers this every 6 months or so to keep in contact with customer which is what im looking into doing, do you no if its suitable for that application ?

    ive a few customers that i go to once twice a year and spray the area with the chloras and its good for 6 months , try it you wont be dissapointed , its great for killing the algae growth on concrete drives etc and patios

    when powerwashing always look out for shaded damp areas as these are prone to algae growth , i always spray these areas after powerwashing and it keeps it away long enough for the customer not to complain
