    Came up with a good idea for the gutter clearing side of my business.
    Have bought 12 downpipe filters off eBay at £1.50 each. Offering em to customers fitted for £4. Going down like hot cakes. Just got rid of the last one.
    Paid £18 for them & got £48 back. Not a bad return for really not doing a lot.

    No good for you non ladder boys tho.

    Good job I ONLY use ladders for gutter cleans and clearing,

    Wfp for cleaning gutters is horrible, much much easier with a ladder and cloths, wfp is good for windows, but cumbersome for things like facias,

    Good idea, you could charge even more posh!

    These are bigger then the normal ones but for some reason my customers like em as they stick out a bit & they can see when they need cleaning. Mind you all the ones I've put in you can't see em from the ground.
