    18ft would do most normal houses, but if you can get a 22ft there is always that time u need a little extra.

    for my 4 storey flats i do i use a 32ft pole and that reaches fine.

    i also have a small 4ft pole that i use on bungolows, saves gettin out the big pole for a little job.

    I have an 8ft three section pole, an 18ft four section, a 25ft five section and a 36ft carbon fibre pole.

    I use the small one for bungalows and old cottages with low first floor windows, the 18ft is a great everyday pole for most houses. The 25ft pole is a little heavier but would be the better choice than 18ft if limited. The 36ft is only for four storey or difficult to reach windows.

    If I could only have two I'd have the 8ft and 25ft unless I needed the 36ft then I'd go for 36ft and 25ft.

    Having said that the poles I mainly use are 8ft and 18ft.

    after this im thinking the 8ft is a necessity so i will deff be getting this.
    im stuck between 18ft and 25ft
    would the 18ft reach top of a four floor house?

    No it wouldn't, it only does the normal house. U would need at least a 32ft pole for them

    I would say just buy a 32ft pole and be done with it .

    I only use my ionics 32ft pole on all my jobs it's a very light pole so it's not a hassle to lump it around and collapsed length
    Is around 5ft ish
