    I have a pressure washer I use to clean my patio slabs but it dosnt always cut the mustard in total cleanliness, is there something I could put on before I pressure wash it to bring it up like new?

    We buy several 2 litre bottles of Tesco basic thin bleach (35pence per bottle). Spread it on the patio and work in with a yard broom.
    Always comes up a treat.

    We've been using Dairy bleach for a couple of years now. Costs about £15 for about 25litres. Mix it 10 to 1 with water. Works a treat. I just leave it on, don't wash off. Just be careful by the flower beds. Get it from a farm supplies.

    Hi, I'm trying to reach the backof my garden with the jetwash,about 45/50 feet, to jetwash the path. When I connect the garden house to it to reach I get very little pressure. It's perfect on the patio with a short connection to the tap.
