    On my own about 12, 9-5 but it's boring on my own, too many *** breaks too.

    I would have stayed out longer today but we ran out of water. 800litres.

    I will have to try and save my water, haha

    Nope. Usually 7-8 windows.
    I must waste too much.

    Good job. Is your apprentice a regular helper or is this a one-off?

    I have got a tap, haha. I will have to make a video tomorrow and you guys can tell me where I'm going wrong. I think it's in the rinse. Do you lot chase all the little bits of fluff and ****e down the glass, or just whizz over it quickly?. The guy I bought the round off told me how it's to be done. But everyone has there own ways I suppose



    [hr]
    Yeah he comes cleaning windows with me. Only a young lad n he's glad to get out the house.

    I try to get every bit but don't always. Are you using a 100psi pump?

    There was a thing on here that if you have a low flow you use more water (and time) than a fast flow for the rinse.

    Is the tap attached to a belt or something? The tap aint much good if on the floor. Mine is attached to a belt & if the brush isn't on glass, then the water is off. Saves a lot.

    Yeah I have a shurflo 100psi

    Yeah I started on 30 and it took forever and it used all my water up

    Then I changed it to 40 which used less water and was quicker

    Then I blew my controller up and had to get a different one. Kept flow at 40, now it's quicker but using water.

    I have my tap on the brush
