If you read the penultimate sentence, it speaks about needing a greater deal of knowledge.

HotWash Window Cleaners

So your original point of cleaning?? Pointless. They are very similar to windows except they are on the roof. Cleaning consists of using a water fed pole with a fixed brush or you can even use a water fed pole with a rotating brush similar to those fitted to the vehicles that clean the big farms. Am I missing something out?

Too long in the tooth for kidology, I have cleaned around 3000 panels so far no problems just complimentary remarks about increased efficiency.

Yes, you are missing something out, the whole point of this thread. Having the equipment does not give you the technical know how of cleaning solar panels. My 5 year old could clean a panel with the kit we all own. The PHYSICAL cleaning of panels is not difficult at all. But the health and safety side of things is completely different in terms of level of risk and knowing how to handle that risk.

 

The gentleman who started this thread has proved that. Would he have felt the urge to walk about on the roof the clean a velux window? I doubt it. But his inexperience with solar panel cleaning led him to take what is in my opinion a dangerous and unnecessary risk. He had the correct kit, but not the know-how. That's the point I'm trying to make.

Well done in cleaning 3000 panels. I'm not sure why this was mentioned, perhaps to prove your experience, I don't know, but well done.

Oh, at least now I know. Would it be wrong to blow him out of the water and say that we have cleaned around 8,000 panels since January, have another 43,000 confirmed to do by the end of the year and with prices given just this week alone for another 172,000??? Difference is, I know I'm still a window cleaner.

 

Incidentally, we do all of this with a cold water system. He gonna be more mad about that than the numbers! ;-)

If you can read it says it on my van.

I have been many things in life not just a window cleaner, successful is one of them. I don't hide what I look like or where I am. Oh established is another.

How you doing, let's see your van inside and out.

That's not going to happen until you see someone else's to photograph.

People who hide are of little substance, if you are so genuine why the secrecy?

Jealousy will get you nowhere. Save money and upgrade your system.

I agree. I never try to write anything malicious. Much of what I say on any forum is tongue in cheek. If it comes across otherwise, often it may be the way we read stuff. Even the friendliest texts can be sometimes misconstrued. :-)
