    Personally i would not work with and ally pole, just because I had one when I started and hated it. Was bloody cold on the hands in winter and heavy but that's me. For those sort of prices I would look at gardiners. Very good poles http://www.gardinerpolesystems.co.uk/acatalog/Water-Fed_Poles.html I am sure their are cheaper out there. But if you intend to stick at it the investment is worth it.

    I don't clean windows anymore but yes I used wfp and my poles were from Gardiners. Had a ally one a brodex one and some cheapo when I first started but can say Gardiners were far superior.

    Buy a CLX-22, a sill brush, 5L of Virosol and use a customers tap, if you're not using pure ATM.
