Strange one....

Right, someone see if they can help here-

 

I use a backpack for most of my houses, but also have a van system.

 

I've noticed that sometimes when I do a window wfp, it seems to 'soap up'- loads of bubbles like soap.

 

Originally I thought the owner had used fairy on the windows between my cleans, then it happened on another house, and I though soap was getting on my brush- but this was impossible as my brush kept in a tube inside my van, nowhere near any soap.

 

Today- I've figured out what it is- It's when I use my van mount.

 

Each time this has happened, I've been using my van system. Now the bubbles clear up after a few mins, but for the first few windows, I have to go over them again as they look soapy!

 

It must be my 100m microbore hose- Could this have a residue on the inside???

 

This only happens when I haven't used my van mount for a few days or weeks.

 

Anyone got a clue? I'm baffled!

It's def to do with oxygen bubbles in microbore mate. I never used to get it with 15mm but this happens to me everyday now since using microbore. It's not soap it's the air escaping - when you run it through 15mm you never see it because it has a bigger outlet :(

Ahhh ok. So it will be fine then? That kinda makes sense.

 

I always use same pole no matter if using backpack or van, so that explanation sounds right.

 

Thanks for help.
