    Hi all - I am looking to clean some windows which around blocked from access by a flat roof and slanted roof. Are water-fed poles the best solution and do you have any tips or recommendations of a cost-effective set? Otherwise I could get someone in but the prices are generally high in my area.

    Many thanks

    Can’t advise on price but our window cleaner swears by them, you need access to mineral free water though

    Thanks - I never knew about the mineral free aspect.

    You're looking at around £200 for a clean water set up, with resin filter, tank, pump, pole and brush.

    Otherwise a WPD straight from the tap will need soap and a squeegee and more work and crap results.

    Our window cleaner uses pole brush , pressure tank with no-smear additive .
    Price depends on how long you need the pole, long reach up to around 60’ can be £5-600 and upwards .

    Yes but I couldn't safely get the ledges and facias above.

    Was also thinking of this as an alternative: https://www.amazon.co.uk/WINDOW-CLE...1J5QX25ZYD4&psc=1&refRID=W4HY0T9ZF1J5QX25ZYD4
