    Has anyone any ideas about how to clean behind these above first floor. There seems to be more and more appearing. Is there a small brush head for sale anywhere or do you just wash above then turn the pressure up and rinse with extra water?

    Turn yer brush round & if it fits in all good.
    If not only other way is ladder & trad or as you said turn pressure up & hope for the best.

    Everywhere! Down here they all have glass instead of iron railings so they are impossible to clean. What I do is cry a little and then ignore it and move on the next house never to return hahaha

    You can do 1st floor by turning the brush but not 2nd floors and above. Just looked at a job in Cambridge that has 4 floors and it looks like 2nd and 3rd floors are being done.

    Air rifle might shatter that glass at the front?

    This is a bit embarrassing, just been playing around with the gooseneck, pole and brush to see if there is anything I could do. I then noticed the Gardiner Quick Loq Socket, which is anything but quick, has an additional hole on the side. By using this I can position the brush horizontally not vertically. Job done, I've only had the poles for 9 months, that's my excuse.
