    hey guys I'm using a grippa tank set up its wicked very powerful light poles but just can't seem to get every little bit of dirt out of the gutters there is always a little bit left in the edges but when I say little I mean not much at all. What would you guys use to get this little bit out or would you be happy with the way they are left ? I know it's hard to say or have a opinion on it with out me posting pics but does anyone else have this problem. I've thought of modding a thin brush with pencil jets in to give them a little scrub after got everything I can out with gutter vac but I might just be over thinking everything and there actually fine.

    Moonpig, to be able to answer you with any degree of accuracy it would be a massive help if you could post a picture of the bits you are talking of so we can see where and advise you properly. Cheers.

    you never get it all out with a vac, but it gets them clear enough to work correctly again. Don't worry about it, or if you do just go up on the ladder after to get the little bits that are stuck on off.

    Yeh i was know no of thing the same hence the reason I was going to mod a wall papering brush to fit on the end of the pole with a pencil jet. The other reason for doing that is customers love a sparking clean gutter. Could even sell that inside clean as a add on ;-) haha

    I've not come by any that want them clean like the outside, don't promise them that higher standard as some will be pigs to do, the idea of a gutter clear is to clear all debris so they work as they should do, the onyl time I wipe out gutters is on connys if I have done the job too quick and have time to kill.
