    In the winter I may be forced in to WFP. Theres no way am running up ladders in the now. I dont mind if its on grass but on a concrete surface no way. I can either go WFP or get 2 guys out to help during the winter

    wouldnt use gas heater in van, as this causes a damp heat and cause a lot of condensation in the van make everything damp and could cause you problems in the electrics of the van too!

    the down side with the wfp in winter is that you have to be careful when and where you use it. if its cold enough for the water to freeze on the ground on path ways or on where people walk, and you dont do anything to stop it freezing, someone slips over on it, you could be taken to court over it.

    well there there is the other draw back to that too! my partner used to work for a nursery and they wasnt allowed to use grit on any of there paths for parents or children to walk on, coz if there wasnt enough grit down and people still sliped over they can still take you to court because of it! I hate the suing world that we are in now-a-days! never used to be like this

    I used to worry about this, but have come to realise that if I'm out cleaning its not gonna be cold enough to freeze there and then and the ground is usually wet already so how anyone can prove they slipped on your water is practically impossible.

    in winter the water dosent run or dry up on the paths so it can still be there after a few hours, people will know that a WFP guy has cleaned windows and left water behind all over the path so they will just blame that guy, its a cruel world seen it happen once but lucky for the guy it never went to court, they settle out of it!
