    Hi Gents,
    So I have had loads of fantastic info out of this forum as a lurker but just wanted to check a couple of specifics please.
    I own a well established cleaning company, mainly rentals and post build and have cleaned a zillion windows trad in my time. I keep being asked to do regular window cleans so am adding a wfp round to business.

    I have ordered:

    Facelift liteboy their new back pack

    Going to order Gardiner SLX22 with tap on hose and maybe an extension rod just incase I need the extra length. oh and the scraper thing.

    I have searched the forums but which gardiner brush or brushes should i order for everyday use with maximum flexibility?

    Anything else I am missing from my gardiner order you would recommend?

    Water purification i am going to order the facelift zero one or the purefreedom equivalent. Easier to have a mobile solution in case we are on site for a while I feel.

    Except for containers ,tds meter(which comes today) trolley for the backpack and straps to hold it, is there anything else I am obviously missing or any thoughts you guys might have?

    Thanks for your help

    A good starter brush for everyday use on the SLX pole would be either an Ultimate Medium/Soft or a Super-Lite medium-mixed :)

    Ultimate flocked for first cleans and leaded windows Super-Lite medium mixed both fitted with standard pencil jets for everything else and Gardiner flocked sill brush for FSG and conservatorie roofs with fan jets. However if you want one brush that will get you going then it has to be the Super-Lite medium mixed in my opinion as it will do it all

    I have found going tubeless with my poles was a vast improvement. Also using a Uni-valve fitted in the top of the pole instead of a tap. These are both seriously worth considering and both available from ExCeed innovations though it is possible to do the tubeless bit DIY if you're up for it.

    Recently bought a medium-mixed sill brush and a univalve.

    This is the best setup ive used thus far, would recommend both.

    Also would recomend having the quick lock fittings instead of the screw type
