    used my back pack today was on full power run out of water after about five Windows is it me being over cautious and wasting to much time or does the backpack need dialling down.

    Thank.

    You are probably being over cautious. But you have made a start. You will get a feel for it. You will get to learn how much water you need to clean a window. First cleans will always use more water. Follow up (maintenance cleans) require surprisingly little water by comparison. I can clean three, two or three bed terraced houses with 25 litres where I live, frames included.

    Nice one Mark, I used about 40 litres to do my three bed semi lol, got to start some where I guess Im thinking maybe I should have bought a trolley system time to get a sack truck now.

    Checked all the window all ok except one there was a stripe think it must have drip from one of the vents?

    Thanks.

    If it's a gardiner backpack turn the dial so the mark is at about 4 on a clockface
    Try that and if not enough slightly more
    Once you are used to it you should be able to do 2 average houses with a backpack full

    It's all about experience mate. After a while you'll be on autopilot and become bored with nothing to think about.
