    Does wfp'ing up and down really make you quicker and make work easier for you?
    I currently wfp and trad bottoms on 60% of my work, 30% I do up and down wfp, I am seriously thinking of doing wfp for everything but I'm hesitant as I'd need to update my gear if i choose to do so as I currently only use a backpack on a trolley, but I do like the idea of a reel in the van and not having to fill me backpack up all the time, also if I was to change would I need a RO in stead of the di and resin I use not, as I'd imagine the resin wouldn't last 5 mins?

    Easier yes.....

    Quicker maybe.

    Depends on the style of the bottom windows. Alot of the time I would be finished trad if I did it.

    But I am lazy and love WFP too much.

    Thing is, some people try to clean really fast and then get complaints and so say wfp isnt much quicker.
    Work smart, learn your windows, which windows are easier from next door, which windows to leave to drip or have gutters underneath etc....and speed then comes with it.....
    Wfp may not be massively quicker on the window but imo its alot quicker inbetween windows

    The other thing about WFP of course is that you can also clean the frames. Customers will notice clean downstairs frames easier than upstairs. So WFP frame cleaning gives you an edge over traditional only competition.

    Plus regarding speed...

    If you use WFP only and no trad, you only have one set of kit to move around :)

    this is a topic I'm interested in.

    Just had a full purefreedom system fitted and am going from trolley to this, also had a 300gpd filter system and just upgraded to a 40/40 so now I have much more water and far easier method for cleaning windows wfp so will now probably be using wfp for 90% of the windows I clean.

    It's always an option, just because you have full wfp system doesn't mean you have to use it if you're quicker trad, just means you have the option.
