    You should take that in to consideration when pricing work in the future, make sure you tell new customers you do all the uvpc (on the windows) etc

    Pure water alone dont get discoloured upvc clean so be careful what you say. :D

    Some migging frames & sills you either have to do by hand or struggle using chems & a pole. Deep cleaning/restoration upvc is tottaly different than just brushing & rinsing with wfp so should charge extra if they don't come clean with pure.

    External beading dg units the joints are also difficult to get clean properly as they trap dirt, moss & algae too

    £7 seems rather cheap H :eek:

    It works for me, No one about ere wipes ledges, frames ect. I make a point in telling them I wipe it all and show them the insuracne details if they question a price.
