    I have done both hypo and bio
    bio is much nicer to use and does work over short period of time
    You may need to hypo some of the stains anyway
    It Depends on customer expectations and the long term relationship/ trust you have / - bleach can strip / discolour - whereas DDAC does not
    Having said that its about results and getting paid

    Yeah I just spray on with BENZ nozzle and flip round to brush it in and agitate
    I usually hypo first if any bad stains then rinse it all down washing cobwebs etc then apply bio
