    Hi
    Started doing fascia cleans recently with wfp but I keep getting soaked
    is this normal??
    The water runs down the pole soaking my arms and legs
    I have a clx and unger nlite poles
    The clx seems way worse although I use this for 90% of the work and the nlite(30ft) for highest bits
    I've watched a few windy cleaners using wfp and they didn't seem to look like drowned rats

    All to do with the angle of the brush on the facias.....you can get wet doing the soffits anyway though.

    must admit ive never had a problem getting wet on facias at all I think bingo is right try a different angle. Soffits yeah I sometimes get wet from them but thats the spray falling down not it running down the pole.
