    Hi, my name is Steven Lamb, I am a window cleaner from Lancashire and I was wondering weather it would be worth buying a pole washing system. I have been dwelling on the idea for a while and have been seriously thinking about buying one after I took a bad fall just a few weeks ago. I would prefer a trolley mounted one as I feel it would be more efficient as I only do residential work. Could I have some feedback please and buying advice. Thanks.

    Sorry to hear about the fall, hope you're okay.

    Yer they are well worth the money.

    Buying advise, depends what you budget is and it you are any good at diy to make you own.

    Could say due to safety and an accident I have to use the pole up stairs and if you wanted to still use do trad down stairs, see how they get on, might even be able to change them all over to wfp!

    Thanks lads for your advice getting more confident by the hour. I was thinking very much the same myself . It's glad to see I was not barking up the wrong tree. General public hard work!! But if you treat them wright they're loyal customers and look after you . You don't get that in any other business.

    I think wfp tops and trad bottoms is a great idea. I am lazy lol, so i dont do that.

    WFP is great, its not perfect.

    i do wfp tops and trad bottoms and works great for me, hard to reach bottoms get wfp lol, customer happy lost about 10 customer but soon replaced them

    u soon run out of water doing full houses wfp......

    i would keep an eye out on ebay for used system or u can get full van set up for about a grand or less off purefreedom.co.uk they do some good diy kits that are easy enough to fit,

    unless your houses are all close together and u do more time walking then van mount are better,

    most seen to buy trolly system and then change to van mounts as easyer.

    most important thing is gettig your water pure, untill its reading 000 on your tds metre dont clean any of your customers windows

    theres plenty of help on here to get you any advice u need

    I am the opposite, tried a van mount but i am quicker with a trolley.

    So far since changing to the big boy back pack i havent yet ran out of water on a house.

    I would love todo trad bottoms, wfp tops but too late for that now.
