Calling all GG4 Users
Posted by Bones (Bones the Winda Kleena), 30 October 2003Hi Guy's it's the new boy again!
I have just started using GG4 and used it by following the 5ml per gallon as instructed and found it hard work (maybe cause i'm new might have summit to do with it ) I have now doubled the dose (and a tad more) and find it easier to work with now.
What I am posting for is to see what dosages you guy's use??
Many thanks Mikey
Posted by STEVE71163 (Steve Lowe), 30 October 2003Hi Mikey,
I use GG4 and i put two 5ml measures to a quarter of a bucket of water (Contractors bucket). I did find that GG4 takes a bit of getting used to and holding the squeegee lighter helped as well.
Posted by Bones (Bones the Winda Kleena), 30 October 2003Cheers Steve, I do like the stuff, but as i am still new to this biz i struggle a bit to see where i've been when squeegie'n off, ha ha, I'm used to following the bubbles you see, ha ha.
Posted by g_griffin (g_griffin), 30 October 2003Hi Mikey, I find I use a stronger dosage than it says on the bottle (5ml per gallon) but have no particular method for measuring. I usually keep adding a bit until I`m happy. I find it also depends on the state of the windows- some inside hardly need any but some dirtier windows outside I tend to need a stronger solution. I suppose all our windows are different so we use different quantities not to mention different bucket sizes. If you`re finding it a bit easier now, then you`re not doing so bad. I`ve been using it a few months and find its still a bit hit and miss. Gerry.

Posted by Bones (Bones the Winda Kleena), 30 October 2003Hi Guy's, Hi Shinner,
It's funny really, i Have 3 of those 5ltr Aqua-Pura bottles in the motor, 1 with just over 5ml in, 1 with 10ml in and the other with 15ml in, ha ha, just look at the windows and take my pick (chance?)

you must be earning to much
I can just about afford a sample in my van
Posted by Bones (Bones the Winda Kleena), 30 October 2003Well you know what it's like when you first start, I ordered 5 samples!! just to try it out,
Posted by shinnyshinner (shinnyshinner), 30 October 2003Hi mikey
I ordered 3 and when they come thought they was not going to last long so got the Big bottle
As I was talking to steve the other day I dont know what to make of it I give it till the end of the bottle but might go back to persil.
If I do all my customers will go thought you said it was better dug a hole there.
