    -or buy the system and get the poles seprately?
    i have looked at the gardiner slxII and other poles but i want a pole thats light and will last so quality :)
    what length pole to get as most of my work will be 2 storey so 18?, 22?, 25?
    and i will also have another pole maybe for the bigger commercial jobs or 3 storeys!

    I have 2 poles, both slx, had ionincs before and they were really not good compared to what I have now....I have 17" and 28".
    17" is for every day use, reaches windows above conservatories, the 28" is for the 3 storey houses.

    I've an slx 25 and an slx 18, both fitted with Aqua Dapters.
    I use the slx 18 for 95% of my work.
    I also have a slx 30 section to attach to slx 25 when the blue moon rises.

    I bought from gardinerpoles and got to admit they where fantastic. Got everything from pole, tank right down to my resin and other bits and bobs. Highly recommend
