I got a couple of custies who want them done now , I clean a hotel that has a water panel set up it was manky hadn't been cleaned for three years ( from new) it was heating the water but only up to 45 degrees , cleaned them with pure , there heat the water up to 60 degrees max before cut out , now saving oil to boost temp ..'now the owner wants them cleaned when I clean the windows Result ... Good selLing point now

    Think of a panel as a delicate window. Use a soft - medium brush. If they are bad, you can use boars hair. Don't use hot water on them. And do protect yourself against electrical shock unless you know they are turned off. I also find that you need a good flow rate on your water.
