    Been getting water for gratis from a friends factory (in exchange for beer and a clean of the unit windows). I was recently concerned about some spotting but now I've bought this tester I can confirm any spotting is due to operator error. image.jpeg

    I'm on a meter...seems like quite an investment for my part time round...the space the stuff would take up...I get unlimited barrells filled up for free.

    I'm a bit puzzled....my own windows come up perfect and I give them a once over every six weeks....maybe not rinsing the frames enough....maybe old soap residue although I'm not convinced this causes problems as I alternate between trad and WFP at home with no problems.

    I find if the windows are hydrophobic, there is a higher chance of spotting, even when you rinse several times. Some windows seem more prone to spotting. I got asked to price a job the other day by someone that uses a window cleaner that uses hot water, windows had spotting, frames were not that clean and seemingly just been cleaned. They have already got rid of him, so in a bit of a awkward position with it, I already do their business. I will probably put the price up and do it trad, as its a bungalow.

    I like a bit of trad, just wish the facelift razer blade rubber was as good as when it was first made:(.

    I will remember the windows that give me aggro...if I can't get them to dry spotless I will just trad those few that cause problems...I'm still tradding virtually all the ground floor still as the time saving is minimal (given that I have to collect my water) and most customers don't give me earache about "why have you not dried my windows"? By the time they see the upstairs glass they're all usually dry.
