It's fairly basic. Like a big bag with a drawstring to tie it at the top. I don't want to spend £40 or so for something that will do the same job. I ordered a 40 foot carbon fibre set up from GCS on ebay this morning. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F123370213241

I went to buy the bag and was confronted by this shock on the delivery price to Northern Ireland. £45.18. I often find that to get parts from Britain the delivery charge is much higher. I'll keep looking around today.

I got the Parasol cover & I bought this metal garden sieve which will fit perfectly into my vacuum when emptying it out. This will separate the water from the solids making it much easier to put the solid waste into a rubble sack or heavy duty bin bag. My total spend to get set up with a good vacuum set up has been £543.00. I bought a second hand (perfect condition) Numatic Twin motor 2400w (£160) which has only 32 litre wet capacity but I have a small Vauxhall combo van which has a 450L water tank WFP set up in it and so I'm limited for space. 

One of my Window cleaning customers who lives out in the country in a massive farmhouse with gutters running on all four walls and numerous outbuildings has agreed £220 for the Gutter Cleaning. It will be a solid days work and I'm praying that the vacuum and poles work properly. Fingers crossed or the wife is going to kick my balls.. Lol

No point paying that. Try eBay and look for fishing pole bags. Some people mentioned on here there good to use.  

 

Might just buy the Sky Vac bag soon. I just use bungees to hold the poles together at the moment and a few all bags for the other stuff.  Pain in the back side on dirty job as all the mud drops out in van...

Hold off and I'll let you know how the Parasol Bag does. 8 poles and the three end fittings with clamps. It looks big enough at 36 cm wide and it's got the extra length at 190 cm. I bring a hose with me on all jobs and will hose everything down before I pack up.

Which Vac are you using and are your poles alu or carbon?

I use a Elsea Titanus 3600 watt industrial grade vac (Italian brand). I use alloy poles. The weight of them is not a problem for me. There're very rigid which I prefer.

I checked your vac out; you'd need to be careful that you don't hoover up the actual gutters themselves...Lol Nice bit of kit, I'd imagine she doesn't block up easily.

Not much blocks it just the really big vegitation that's too big to go down it. Once it locks onto something doesn't take long to remove it.

Hi again, the parasol bag is a good job for the poles and attachments. Good strong material and the draw string closes it well. Top job.
