    I want to get myself a liquidator for general residential trad work. I only do bungalows. Should I get 10,12 or 14"?

    Cheers :)

    I use a 14 and can do 90% of windows with no problems, 12 would work too

    Best get the 14 inch, then you can cut it down if you want. Personally, I go with 12 inch on houses.

    Is it just me finds it irritating they only come in 10, 12 and 22 inch?

    I'm taking a Wagtail with 12" liquidator today but I usually use a contour pro+ w/ 40cm channel: 12" is a bit small for shopfronts, while 22" is too big for some frames.

    I'd switch to liquidators is they came in a decent range of sizes.

    I have a 10 14 18 and 22 liquidator all available in those sizes off the shelf and a 5.5 i cut down myself

    10, 12, 14, and 18 i would use regularly on domestic work
    A 12 would do most stuff but i like to use whichever size is most relevant for each window

    for a few yrs i found a 13inch -ISH squeegee worked great on council houses [smaller windows] . i carefully cut down a 14 to just a fraction Under 13 inches . 13 exactly may have been unlucky up the ladders, who knows, I DARE NOT RISK IT

    Kind of got into the unlucky 13 superstition many yrs ago. i lived on an American airbase and there were no houses on the estate with the number 13 .

    my old dad was very superstitious too, new shoes on the table were forbidden and if you didnt draw your curtains meant thered been a death in the family. bit ridiculous that
