    Fine on cleaning fascias and outside off gutters , i dont use it for inside gutters anymore as it makes too much mess, also at full extension can be very whippy using any middle to high pressure , handy thing too have though , better too have it and not need it than too need it and not have it.
    Very good at applying chemicals at low pressure to gutters and fascias , put on a chemical nozzle and your pump will need to have a chemical pipe on it too suck from the bottle of citrosul, defo good for low pressure work

    yep , only use it if you really have too and buy a waist belt too take the strain, like i said its good for applying chemical at low pressure, high pressure work a bit dodgy after 4 to 5 m extended

    I found that most ppl do not want their fascias etc pressure washed as rightfully so could blast water into loft spaces etc also can damage painted wood/plastic to boot if not careful ;)

    Well ive been pressure washing them for years and never had a minutes bother, if the soffit has vents in it be careful but never had any probs , use a 25 degree nozzle and a brush attachment and about 2000psi, come up a treat.
