    Hi just wondering what best way to clean fsg is?

    I've used a pressure washer in past which works out fine.
    Iv also in past tried to clean with normal wfp brush head but struggled getting behind gutter and underside of soffits from the ground. You can get those sill brushes though so would it be better to use one of them or stick to pressure washer?

    TFR and cloth it, have tried it water fed pole once and it didn't seem any quicker to me , although I'll probably give it another go to see if it is

    After recent experiences i would say just spray the whole lot with hypo and wash it off after 20 minutes ;)

    Rinse & scrub all the worst bits off first (especially cobwebs) and then go round for the finishing clean.

    If you use ubik and let it work for a while wfp will take minutes
    The hardest bit is dossing for a while as it does it's job
