hi matt. if your going to have to buy a pole anyway why dont you look at one of the residential pole kits that cost 90. you'll get the pole, brush and resin cartridge and be able to do other odd jobs with pure water when you need it Cool

If you mean the Ionic residential kit, thats good but the pole is only 12ft.  Thats barely 1st floor.  An 18 ft "residential" pole (on its own) costs about 90, thats about 2nd floor.

If you're thinking of something else, then ignore me.

WinkMatt we use the unger poles Winkthey are very good we use the 4 section,there ard 5 sections,they are some 7ft
each section,there are lots to choose from,and sizes,the good thing is you can add to them Grin 4 section is around
50 ish Huh and so on Winkthey are well worth looking at for normal window cleaning, Wink

I too am looking at a pole system/kit but i have not decided what to get as I hear good and bad things about the poles - anyone with any suggestions - I like the sound of beecleans pole kit.

its worth buying a few of these just in case. tagged a couple on my order from the window cleaning centre. not going to catch me out again lol

If you ever get caught out with a slipping pole and you don't have any replacements with you, all you have to do is heat up the edges of your old ones with a lighter or match, and push the sides in a little to thicken them.  They will last a couple of days or so until you get some more.
