    Hi,
    As per title is the 18ft slx good for using on bungalos & 2 stories or is a shorter one better for bungalos?

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Personally I'd go for a 25 if you don't already have a longer pole for those 2nd floor windows/sky lights on 2 story houses or windows above roofing, the length doesn't change too much for ground floor windows and you've a bit more reach which will be sufficient for 99% of houses.

    I have two SLX poles (25 & 37) and would highly recommend them.

    I'd go for a longer pole if it's going to be your only pole. A 22' pole will reach over connys easily.

    Deffo get the 22

    I have a day and a half on bungalows and the 22 collapses to less than 6" and thats with an aquadapter, i also use it for 98% of the rest of my work which is either terrace or dorma bungalows. My 25 can be a tiny bit long and awkward for terrace backyards or paths between houses

    I'd still get the 22, with a 28 as your second pole you'd have the perfect range

    I've got the SLX22' and SLX35'.....for awkward places and bungalows, I use a 4' length of electrical conduit (£1.00) with QuikLoc adapter and the hose running on the outside held in place with a velcro tie....very useful and cheap to do ;).
