Cleaning Gutters And Conny Roofs With Tap Water



Recommended Posts

Knoxy

Right then I've done a few gutters and conny roofs and I have quite a few booked in the next few weeks, I've always cleaned them using pure water but I want to start doing them with tap water, do you guys use your normal pole and hose linked to a tap then flush it out at the end with pure water or do you use a different pole and hose?

no on conservatory roofs i aways use pure water, especiallyon the glass ones. that way it wont leave any marks when it drys like tap water would do.

or if they are really bad, i had one that i gave a wash down with the customers hose then washed it all again in pure water.

 

also not all people have outside taps, so you would still have to use your own water.

Yes thats what I've done a couple of times is use a customers hose then finish off with pure water.

If they don't have an outside tap then the price will be a bit higher ;)

Use tap water on all my connies. My custies love it. Don't need pure water to get all the green **** off. I get birds **** off and dust charge a tenner takes about quater of an hour to clean it & get the green **** off & they love it. Connie roofs face the sky & get sh@&&£d up pretty quick but it's what your custie wants bet a lot of you have never offered this way & just gone for the pure water job. Did 7 roofs last week took me two hours £70. £35 an hour.

I would charge 35+ a roof. 50+ for the whole conservatory. Most take about an hour or less, I tend to spend more time than needed though. I leave all that kind of work until the end of the week.

set the back legs close to the conservatory base then extend the ladder section up, dont always use these. only use these when i need to get higher than the roof for awkward roofs like the one in the picture, other times i use platform steps or podium steps

I would use at the very least 50 litres just rinsing the roof. Even the smallest of roofs. Thats with viro sol.

plus can buy it at £3 for 4lts
