    Hi all.

    I'm from New Zealand and have been on the windows 22 odd years here and in Australia. Always been happy to use whatever method suits the job, mostly abseiling, but have done my fair share of tucker pole work, squeegee pole work and have even been known to get up a ladder.
    Recently decided to go out on my own and signed up here to get more info on the latest generation of wfp's. I have had a few tucker poles in the past. Decided on an slx35 with a wide xtreme brush.
    It arrived a few days ago and I have given the windows at home a scrub. Its been a few years, they were nearly due to be done anyway :)
    The pole is a thing of beauty compared to others I have worked with, not convinced on the brush though.
    Anyway, great source of info here, thanks to all the contributors.

    Another antipodean :eek: welcome mate. The extreme brush is a brush with not that many bristles. An SLX-35 is a long pole for everyday use unless you have tall houses to clean.

    Thanks. Not that many bristles is an understatement. I could only afford one pole and wanted one that can do everything. I will grab a base section to shorten it and a decent brush at some stage in the future. I also want some bigger jets if I can find them as saving water isn't an issue for me, I run straight off the tap.

    Hi John,

    When you say you run straight off the tap, are you saying you don't use a purification system?

    Curious as I am struggling to find a supplier of DI resin here.

    I get good results using just tap water.
