    Gonna do a few bits and bobs this morning, then I'm off to work at 6pm (right at dinner time) to clean the outsides of this beast: image.jpg

    Doesn't look that big, but it's glass all the way round on all 4 sides, absolutely no gaps, just all glass,

    We did the insides last week, but I had a work mate with me for that, gotta get this done by 9pm! 3 hours to hammer it out on me jack jones!

    Why they won't let me do it in the day is beyond me - health and saftey cr@p!

    Anyways, think of me whilst your all sitting down with ya dinner...

    We have a couple of jobs we can only do when there is no one about. I prefer that TBH. If that's a business premises I would have opted for a Saturday or Sunday.

    How are you going to clean the glass behind those shades?

    Yeah I normally do my offices jobs early morning, and even while people are there at work, it doesn't seem to bother the other office owners, this is a first for me!

    I'm not doing the front of the building where the slats are, as for the rest, they are actually easily reachable, the sun slats are at the top of each window so it's not in the way of the pole...

    I'll just be standing further back to avoid hitting the sun slats

    That seems a big job to do on your own for sure in just 3 hours working around a floor at a time to reduce drippage and all. I take it you will also have to wash and rinse down every panel of glass below each pane of clear glass too as you work?

    How much pure water do you recon you will use on that one?


    Will you be just using a van mount tank or a pure on demand type system?

    Van mount smurf, I have a 750l tank,

    I've done bigger jobs on me own, at the end of the day I've told the caretaker that it's not gonna be perfect due to the style of windows etc etc, and he's happy for me to just do what I can...

    The opaque panels will just be left, haven't got time to dickie about doing them, caretaker knows that.

    Oh and I work fast smurf, very fast;)
