Your WFP is set up and you’re already cleaning second story and higher windows, why not use it on the first floor as well?
Is it a speed thing?..Faster to use scrubber and squeegee on first floor? But using the WFP would save some time because you wouldn’t have to detail with your Huck or Scrim.
What about (in commercial setting) you have a long row of windows that are difficult to access because of shrubs…do you use an extension pole to reach these?..I imagine detailing would be a PITA. So how about the WFP in that situation?
I use it on the 1st floor. My machine runs two poles. I will work the tops an the helper the bottoms at the same time. When it comes to windows that are over each other, then I will clean those first and move on. As soon as the helper can move in for the lowers they do. Nice thing with the poles is you dont need step ladders to get that little extra reach on the lowers and you dont have to worry about getting into bushes. Most of the time the pole can be extended and adjusted to work the angles. I have found it to be quicker all around.
I don’t hesitate on using it on 1st floors if the equipment is already setup, I have to agree that most of the time might be faster to just squeegee it, but it really depends on the access to the windows. If you have a low TDS and you get lots of gallons out of a tank, I’d say use it.
NOTE: if you don’t have one, do yourself a favor and buy the 4ft Xtel, is a life saver for 1st floors !
Yes it is a Slayer and a Sor**. It was a freebie from a convention so he made no money from it. Just biding my time till the Slayer version gets its funding.
We run the splitter right off the DI tank. Since we clean mainly residential the height would be in the 28’ to 36’ range, I’m not sure what the source psi is for the typical home in our area. I also do not know the gpms but I’ll have Bill chime in on that.
We park the Van by the source of water and then run one hose to the two poles
where we split them. we use a small gas pump so there is aways enough pressure!

I might be wrong, but I think you need a pressure regulator on your tank inlet for the water to get properly filtrated, if you let the pressure from the spigot go unrestricted to your tank you’ll see high TDS readings on the outlet.
