    Hi, I am currently a student and I am looking to start my own water fed window cleaning business when I finish studying. I am just wondering what system people would recommend: van mounted system, trolley system or backpack. I am just starting up so my round is currently not very big! Any advice would be welcome :)

    I've got a tds meter on order from ebay, what I mean is once I have purified my water, what system would be advisable for a beginner to start cleaning? I was thinking maybe a backpack system would be good?

    Gotchya.

    I suppose its down to budget, type of work/house layout/how your work is situated i.e quiet estates with cul-de-sacs or busy main roads and how much work you intend doing and how compact your work is

    Personally i have a trailer set up

    KIER - Most of my work initially would be on small homes (2,3 or 4 bedrooms) situated on small estates.
    TENCH - That was the sort of thing I was thinking, backpack then upgrading to van system, then just keep my backpack for those hard to reach areas!
