Im happy about this John. I think most people would be interested in seeing techniques on a couple of different types of windows, and in different situations… What Monofilament is best for, what boars hair is best for, fan jets, pencil jets etc…
I have my wfp setup ready - First time using it will be this year. I’ve watched several videos and a lot of overkill going into cleaning the windows time wise. I understand this for training purposes but I’m hoping to get a view of the pole in action at it’s potential max speed - producing good results of course!!
Thanks for doing this John It’s going to be of great help for newbies like myself.
Not sure about the “max speed part” though. I’m 40 and fat. I guess I’ll be showing max speed for fat 40 year olds.
Here is a partial topics list. Filming starts tomorrow!
[B]• Residential – [/B]• General technique;
• technique for windows with oxidized vinyl frames;
• “top down" order of doing windows;
• doing true divided lites;
• upselling deep screen cleaning & showing my screen cleaning method (since we have to go in the house to remove screens first)
[B]• Commercial – [/B]• General technique;
• windows with deep ledges;
• technique for “curtain” of windows;
[B]• Overall – [/B]• Brush types and sizes;
• jet types; the difference between pencil and fan jets and why you need to use either
• spare parts and tools to have on hand;
• when to change filters and how to change filters
• flushing out system
We’re open to suggestions. Filming will wrap in a couple weeks, so respond soon!
This really depends on what type of work you want to do (mostly commercial or mostly residential), how high you want to go, and what the TDS (mineral content in the water, stands for Total Dissolved Solids) is in your area.
If you’re a guy who wants to wfp homes up to 3 stories and your local TDS is 350…then I’d say start with a cheaper pole and invest bigger bucks in an RO/DI system. If, on the other hand, you’re a guy who wants to do 4 story office buildings and your local TDS is 60, then I’d say put the moolah on the pole and start out buying or even renting a DI tank.
For anyone who has these kind of questions, you first need to find out what the TDS is in your area.
Nice video. I do have a question though. In the first video I see that you go all the way to the bottom of the window and back to the top. Doesnt that bring all the dirty water to the top of the window again? In that situaton I will clean the top half of the window then the bottom half and then rinse. That way I dont keep bringing dirty water to the top of the window. Am I over thinking this? Thanks.
