    Hi

    what is the best way to apply ubik or chemical to gutters and fascias if and when needed?

    been told by some to just dip brush in water and the chemical but is there away of using an high reach pump sprayer or something to spary the ubik on and leave before washing? not planning on using ladders if possible?

    would the gardiner backback be able to be used in someway or please recommend best ways?

    cheers

    For higher stuff you can make a cheap wfp sprayer out of an old wfp, pump up sprayer or electric backpack sprayer.

    I'm sure it would work the same way with a wfp with a fan jetted brush you use for the job just by swapping over the the pole hose to a backpack or or by using a two way stop connector when you want to apply chems. That way you only need to use one wfp and can scrub it at the same time or most of the chem you apply will run off onto the floor/windows etc.

    No supplier as of yet has come up with an addon simple pole systems to apply chems that way using a backpack sprayer and pure from one pole. It would be no good having a seprate spray nozzle attached to the brush externaly as would just get in the way when wanting to scrub awkward areas down.

    Maybe the likes of Alex Gardiner might be interested to supply such a thing in the future. Who knows :rolleyes:

    What I have and use is a 5.4 metre telescopic pre sprayer which when collapsed takes up no room in the van, just make my solution up in a 8L pre sprayer and spray all the area, leave for a few mins to do it's magic then rinse and scrub using WFP. 5.4 metres I find is plenty for most standard houses.
