    Hi Jakob nice to meet you Sir your not offending me mate ,,,,, everyone has there way of doing things .... you probably have not seen some of the glass construction in German Homes.. this KArcher WV 50 does work ,,,, Jo fromn Scotland about 4 - 7 years ago is one of the first who saw its potential .... i probably use this about once every 2 years ..... and an indoor kit Imo would probably be too time consuming even though it has its place , , windows open inwards and you can do both sides here , ( except for fixed framed windows of course )and not 100 % effective for me tha means i would have to move around the indoor kit and my trad gear and a bucket and other items " No way Hose " ! ( which would in direct sunlight ; let alone hot dirct sunlight leave somes ort of smearing on glass that gets cleaned once twice yearly ). because any internal work that needs to be done would be done with Step ladders or Sectionals .... its high end homes alot of the time here that means the frames get special treatment as wel and the glass has to be 100 % , i would get shot if i was cleaning everything with a pole, total control can only be had with hand on tools and nose to glass work Imo after 25 years and around 70,000 Flats homes etc ;-)
    you would automatically turn to the same system as me after all the complaints you would get from using an indoor kit and trust me MAny Germans like it 100 % ( total smear free ) ;-)

    I only use nose to glass cleaning apart from the odd window, but when it is required to be drip free cleaning like glass floors etc like in your video, i use the unger internal kit with pure water, no streak no complaints :thumbsup: danish ppl is maybe different, they dont wanna pay for special treatments they want the glass cleaned for a cheap price (most of them).

    Plus karchers are german aren't they so I bet they love it for that too ;)

    I also have a karcher indoor vac, I got the best at the time (vv70?) my folks got the cheapest just to keep in the bathroom - mines great, theirs leaks if you hold it at an angle and is nearly full, better button though, but I would only feel confident to use mine in a custies house.

    I have a conservatory interior to do next week, out will come the vac as she is worried about drips. I'll likely use a vikan indoor pole and microfibre for the roof glass though. I still need to detail with the vav though, you seem to have mastered it. I use mine maybe once a month, great for certain windows/areas, but you can't go as quickly on the glass as a squeegee.
