    Just thought I'd pipe up and recommend the Gardiners SLX 30, just started using one and they are excellent. Worth stumping up the extra cash for.

    Got one with my big boy backpack. Super pole. Had no trouble at all with it.

    For 3rd storey I use a unger 30ft pole. Cost me £70 of eBay & a bit heavy but with a light brush on its fine.

    I started wfp cheaply to save money - a basic ro system , 25L containers ,a cheap battery , cheap hose etc but I did buy a good pole and I am happy I did so Gardiners are good and for 3 st building get a 30ft rather then 25-28

    Brilliant thanks guys, I'm defiantly going to invest in a 30/32 ft pole. I'm just undecided on weather to go Gardiner or Ionics but i will let you know which one i buy tomorrow. Thanks Again Guys.
