    There are a few out there but it does come down to personal preference i currently use ettore but then again that is the only one i have ever used so can't comment on others.
     
  3. I use unger ergo tech XL handle with a 12" channel and ettore rubber (soft). Unger belt, pocket, bucket on a belt and a bucket with a lid.

    Good old fairy liquid in ya water works too :)

    If you have never done Trad before mate then worth looking at getting a Wagtail........so easy, even my Missus can clean with it. Check out the video below :- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qk7PQ_Ehel8

    I've been doing what that guy is doing in that video for years without a wagtail squeegee. I just use a 0 degree Unger squeegee, and then unlock the swivel lock as loose as it gets and away you go.

    As for what squeegees to use, I would suggest Unger, but honestly I think your main issue is going to be using it. It can take a fair bit of practice before you get comfortable with it and if you have never used one and go to do the insides of a large commercial, you could easily make a mess of it and loose the job.

    There are plenty of videos out there on youtube about all the various techniques, my advice would be get a squeegee as soon as, to practice for a good couple of weeks before to start cleaning for a large job.

    thank,s for the reply,s think il try one of the unger squeege,s to start with and i like the idea of the unger pure water kit, think that would be
    the fastest and cleanist method.
