    is it me or are there more n more of these people that claim to be window cleaners but can only use water fed poles.
    if so they are water fed pole operators NOT window cleaners . we have had a guy on one of our rounds claiming to be a window cleaner. as my customer knows what we do he asked her if she would change to him as he had pure water cleaning method that was better than the traditional cleaning she had( a bungalow) she asked him if like my normal window cleaners do can you clean the inside of the windows as they do , but his reply was sorry buy i can only use the water fed pole method.. as she is a canny old lass ( like grandma she said to him then you arnt a window cleaner then) he said yes i am i clean using w p f. she laughed at him n said if you cant clean my windows inside without that pole n all the water going every were your arnt a window cleaner . hastn't to ad he buggered off . we are still getting our tea n home made cake from her would love to see him clean inside with a water fed pole haha
    i have be using the water fed pole for many year good for some bad for others

    Because it's pretty rare to be asked to do internal windows its not worth his time to faff about with trad gear.

    If you want to do the job right and wipe the floor with others in your area use the wfp system but also finish off down stairs with sqweegee and wipe frames and sills with cloth.
    There are a lot that give us wfp users a bad name anyone can rush round spraying water at windows .if you know how to clean windows then a wfp gives the best clean with more speed which means more money.
