    Hi all,

    Every now and again i clean the lower windows at the front of house just so i can see for myself how they dry :specs I did this today and left them to dry, once they were dry i noticed that the kitchen window had a few chalky like runs on it :(:(:( so I got my pole out again and gave it another good scrub and rinse and again left it to dry????

    once it had dried it was actually 100% worse???

    I tested my water inside the tank and actually coming out off the brush and both have a TDS reading of 000.

    This has happened on a few occasions and I really cant figure it out??

    I have taken some pictures and can put them on if required?

    My worst fear is that this is also happening to customers windows?

    The other windows on my house seem to dry and clean fine except for the occasional small run.

    Cheers abs, I just think it really strange how its only the one window/frame?? the weird bit is that i cleaned the first time and just a few runs but certainly to many and when i cleaned it again 1hour later it was even worse??

    Seems we're all getting problems on our own houses :(, just think if it was a customers windows, you'd be getting call backs left right and centre.

    Pics will help identify the cause of the problem if you can post them?

    there are some windows that you just can't trust to dry right
    You just have to make sure you check em - especially where customer likely to see . I always keep a squeege on me for those tricky ones and scrub em with brush but don't bother rinsing - just run squeege down in straight pulls .
    don't leave it to chance!
