    Sorry to change this a bit but what pole would you use to clean solar panels? I have a gardiner carbon fibre 35ft I know that won't be long enough but I heard you can't use carbon fibre poles as you might get a shock?

    That's interesting, I hadn't thought about that before. (electric shocks)

    So ur 35ft pole won't do solar panels. Are u talking normal 2 storey houses or 3 storey houses?

    By the way Posh. I haven't gone WFP just yet (but am close to doing). I already have several customers interested in me doing their solar panels.

    Are u not interested in doing them yourself. I not sure I would want to travel to sawston area just for a couple of houses lol.

    Perhaps Alex Gardiner can throw some light on this subject and recommend a suitable pole for solar panels on both 2 and 3 storey houses.

    I was hoping to buy an slx 25 and add extentions if need be, but now I'm not sure.

    There roughly 20 panels on each house but ain't really counted.

    Nah don't fancy doing them. Got enough with windows & guttering keeping up with that let alone solar panels.
