    Hi to everyone thanks for the add. I'm alex. Have been lurking for a few weeks reading everything I can. I've not started window cleaning as yet as I have a few other things going on but hopefully will be starting soon. I've been collecting a few second hand bits of equipment to get me started. Hopefully will be setting up with my brother who has years of experience but he's mostly been doing abseiling work. He was one of the cleaners on Beetham tower in Manchester. Rather him than me haha. Anyway loving the forum all seems very friendly and helpful.

    Anyway first newbie question. .according to the ppm map Merseyside has 100 ppm will I need a full ro system or just di.

    Welcome to the best window cleaning forum alex. My water is very soft, so have never taken much interest with water that is higher than 060PPM. I ain't got a clue about RO's and I won't be moving house, so I'm twin DI only. :thumbsup:

    Welcome. As a comparison my water was around 80-90 ppm I ran di only although best to have a couple of di's and rotate.

    Welcome to the forum mate, cant comment on ppm as here in Glasgow water is very very soft so I only use a small di tank but advice given above looks sound.

    Thanks guys for the replies, see I said you all seem a friendly helpful bunch haha. Definitely has given me more to think about. I've just won some items on the old bay of fleas. 25th hybrid elite pole. 6 brushes with fan jets all the connections and some hose for £80. Worth it? Looks like it can get me going

    Welcome Alex, those bits you bought will come in very handy for sure :thumbsup:

    I've bought quite a few decent bargains from fleebay myself over a period of time which include:

    ladders
    ankalad x 2
    microlite standoff
    ladder spurs
    conservatory ladder
    petrol pressure washer x 3
    pressure washer hot box
    rotary surface cleaners x 4
    baffled water tank x 2
    gas water heater

    That's just to name a few as I like buying bargains for work as you do. You still have to be very careful what you bid on though as there is also plenty of **** listed aswell.
