    What a mucky job that is as every time I do one I come home plastered in ****. Even gets in me beard & hair but the best bit when using a turbo nozzle sand & **** gets blasted everywhere.

    The look of horror on customers faces is classic though :D

    One I did today I had to cover all the plants, bushes and hard landscaping including around the pond that could not be moved out of the way.

    Then whilst cleaning it ended up looking like a swimming pool of sludge water as it cold not drain away properly.

    I could not be arsed to get me wetvac out of the van so when the customer said "I know I will get my pond vac on that no problem" I just let him carry on as you do :D

    To be honest I was impressed how well this thing worked for such a cheap wetvac as was also setup to auto empty

    Think they call that look "everything goes south at my age" :D

    That's probably why I keep my cloths on in public now so not to scare anyone

    Sorry to ask about pressure washers again smurf, but I can't remember where it was we were talking about it. Whats the minimum spec you would consider for a washer? As in operating pressures, LPM etc. I've got a few jobs lined up so its happening this month.
