    Hi just recently started out in window cleaning as some know from my.previous posts have a good few jobs under my belt now and no complaints so far fingers crossed it has to be said probably mainly.to a good advice.from this forum and ever reliable uncle Google. So thanks very much to all that contribute.to this site. Just wondering how much rinsing is required to make.sure the glass is.left clean. I.know.there are many factors but on average? I tend to rinse very thoroughly I think because.I rinse each window.top to bottom three times after solid scrubbing. But is it not.too much? Maybe I.am doing too good a job? :) not to mention that the water is really going quickly can go through 250l tank doing 6-7 houses. Any advice as always greatly appreciated

    Turn your pump down, I try and average £1 per litre of water to give you a rough estimate.

    How About triple rinsing? Would double be enough ? Is it better to rinse slowly or rather fast? What gives better results?

    I only rinse once, no need for anymore unless you're on an initial clean.

    Tbh I stopped rinsing on most windows some
    Months ago now. I do very very very little rinsing.

    Water is cheap enough. If you are using 250L AND doing £200 then no worries.

    What brush do you use to get away with that mate?

    I assume you also have a pretty high flow rate?

    Didn't have a high flow rate was still on a trolley. Any brush really.

    Now I use an extreme black/blue bristle hybrid brush and mega high flow rate.

    Interesting, will have to try it some more myself.

    Last time I didn't thoroughly rinse I got terrible spotting!
