    Bit of a moan really..

    Im sick of working down streets and constantly having to dodge dog/cat poo..sometimes you get it on your pipe..

    There is nothing more of putting than working with that..

    18L does me for most houses.

    So I have to fill up after each house.

    The time I loose in filling up, is the same as messing around with winding in hoses etc

    I am making my trolley now though. Based on a 25L but I have gone for weight saving.

    So I have a few weight saving ideas. Really looking forward to it.

    My van has a 350 tank and JUST does me a day. Other vans are 650s

    I had this one house and the back garden was a minefield. Gave it in in the end, too much time washing poo off shoe

    i always bring my hose in with a micro fibre cloth. one time i brought it in and got cat shite on my hands. it made me physically sick. even had it on the wheel on my trolly and i didnt know bout it. put the trolly in the back of the car and while driving along thought i stood in sumthing and the smell got on the carpet for days. :angry: now i carry detol in a spray bottle and wipes to wipe my hands and face after each clean.

    Yeh Damo, the tank i have says 600 ltr on it but u can squeeze another 50 in it, the tank fits in with not a mm each side to spare..Its all nice and compact :) ..JDMW, hahaha :lol: ..thats funny that..I use a cloth everytime i reel in also, i also do my pole hose aswell..ive done similar things regarding dog poo, if u smear it along the pipe and dont realise till its too late its a nightmare to get rid of the smell..driving around on a hot summers day with sh%t wafting in the cab of the van is not how i imagined window cleaning would be when i first started out..hahaha.. :lol: It can be a dirty job sometimes but when i think about standing on a production line for 40+ hours a week..i`d choose cat shite any day ^_^

    Yeh..its disgusting, but i have learnt to really inspect the floor before i start moving around with gear..i still get caught out from time to time but not as much as when i 1st started out..i sometimes drop a polite hint to them like "I couldnt do the back because of the poo"..make them feel embarrased..it works B)
