    hi thankyou for taking your time to help me, i am starting up a pure window cleaning bussiness, i have opt to go with the trolley version i am new so please be far

    first is there any licences that i will need to get to use water fed poles or contact any one,
    i live in a hard water area and the tds reading is over 400 i have a di vessel and new resin but i can only get it down to 0.50 whats the best and to be fair the cheapest way to get down to 0
    if anyone has any tips or advise i would be grateful many thanks paul

    No licence needed unless you are working in scotland

    I'd buy water too if I were you as would be cheaper and easier way to start

    You will need PL insurance esp for any commercial work they'll ask to see it/a copy and a receipt

    I'm not doubting you mate, but are you sure Worcester is hard water? Do you not get your water from the Elan Valley? SHAQ TULLOCH is from Worcester maybe he could advise? Even with new resin it should get the reading down to 000PPM for a certain amount of time.
