    Hi Guys,

    Had an email out the blue today, not sure where it came from yet but it's from an operation manager of a big conference centre and they have asked my to price their windows up. Looking at the pics I'm guessing it's worth well over £100 a clean but the problem I have is that I only have a 250 litre system and I'm guessing that I'm going to need about 500 litres of water for the first clean at least and I'm guessing I will be ordering a bigger pole too!

    Could do with a transit with a bigger system in for this one

    My biggest pole is a Brodex and has four six foot sections so it is probably advertised as a 25 or 27 foot pole. The job is probably half an hours drive from me but I have to pay £3.00 tunnel fair each trip. I'm thinking of taking about 8 25 litre containers. The pay load on my van is 750 kg so it should be able to carry 500 litres.

    Looking forward to next week now. I might contact some other local commercials and see if I can give a quote on them, in for a penny, in for a pound!

    Di is a good option because you will be able to fill your 250 lt tank up again in 20minutes
