    Daveyboy will you take some before and after photos of that coney and let me know what you thought of it with hypo. Would be really interested as I did a stinking one the other day with ubiquitous that did a good job but interested if it speeds you up and how the plastics come up after the clean

    I'll take some pics
    I have been warned that the upvc can slightly change colour but soon changes back again
    Very weird
    Mark Cave also told me not to go any stronger than 1% and that should avoid the problem

    Don't use hypo on conny roofs mate, it's harsh to say the least infact I don't use hypo on upvc as a whole
