    Peter could you put a link up for the book please? I'm intrigued by softwashing. I'm sure I'll get proved wrong but to me it looks like spray and agitate chemical then rinse off. So is it a case of the guys who got slagged off over the years for using hypo and underpowered pressure washers where actually sort of softwashing all along. I'm sure there's a bit more to it than that so I think the book would be an interesting read.

    I'd just like to see a real filthy driveway or similar done from start to finish to see if it is a real alternative to pressure washing. Or is it just a maintenance thing for not so dirty drives etc. The videos I've looked at online so far basically show some guy spraying chemicals but not the full cleaning process. So in that regard it does seem quite secretive.

    Most drives, all block paving ones especially need power washing cos the joints need cleaning out
    So there's pressure washing plus Chem after ( bleach )
    then there's just bleaching stuff - walls , flags , tiles
    Then there's treating with biocides( no bleach ) which is interesting -
