  1. Was wondering how much water people get through on an average 8 window house?
    I'm using about 25l a house. Seems like a lot!

    Depends on what I have the flow rate set on for the type of clean I'm doing and if I can be bothered or not to keep turning the water off/on.

    I'm sure richard will be along in a min to tell you about the type of brushes too
     
  4. I'd better get speedier and more efficient then!
    Is Richard in retailing?

    Aim for £1 per litre.
    I usually do 2 terraces from an 18 litre backpack and minimum charge is £10

    You might be able to turn your water flow rate down if the brush is slow to use (or you are using it wrong)


    If its any help, 1 litre of water will cover 1 square metre area, 1mm deep, how many sq metres of glass do you clean with 25lt, then again more dirt needs more water.

    yeh smurf is the head of sales for richards brushes....:rofl:

    i seem to empty my backpack 18litres on one detached house....
     
  10. This may sound naive, is there an incorrect way of using a brush?

    All my jobs have been 'first cleans' so far. Maybe my usage is more typical of this?
