I imagine you've been asked this a hundred times before but could you talk me through the whole process? hypo mixes, times, protection of the area etc etc?

I would like to have something extra up my sleeve for the real dirty pvc cleans.

In simple terms ppe is top of the list 

Hypo mix for plastics 5or 6 ltr of water to 1 ltr of hypo , use back pack sprayer to apply , wet down with garden hose any lead first and plants etc then apply mix damp down plants again , leave mix to work for 10-20 muinits it should already look a lot cleaner green algi will turn brown like sludge , scrub with wfp rinse with garden hose job done , some white plastics can turn yellow/brown if you use a stronger mix and even at this dilution it can do the same so if not experienced might pay to use a 7-1 mix but the plastic will revert back to white given a couple of hours , it’s best not to do it on a very hot sunny day or a windy day as it can dry the mix out to quickly , one of the surfactants below will help with slip whilst scrubbing you only need 300 ml of it to a 20 ltr drum of neat hypo so it’s quite cost effective , any specific questions just ask , but do go carful if you have no knowledge of the product . You could mix it up in a bucket and dip the brush in it and apply it , or you can apply it through the backpack and wfp brush on a low flow rate , PPE is very important use safety glasses AND a visor you will get drips on you no matter how careful you are you don’t want it on your face , wear old clothes  !!!!! 😂😂😂😂

Thank you for that, ive been using the degreasers and razor wash, but it I don’t always get the results I’d like.

I’ve been looking at using the Benz lightning cleanse, as it seems simple. Is it any good?

Yes it’s good stuff but very expensive for plastic cleans just get yourself some dairy hypochlorite from a farm supply shop costs around £13 for 20 ltr , Lightning cleanse is around £50-60 for  20 ltr , add a bit of surfactant to the dairy hypochlorite to give it some cling and slip when scrubbing cheap as chips
