Smiley Hi All,
I'm just starting my 1st winter at window cleaning, and as the temps start to fall I can't help but wonder what's the best thing to use to stop the water freezing up.
Can anyone Help on this one ?? Huh

Many Thanks for any help you can give

Hi Steve,
            After looking at your post i thought i would have a look at the titan website the makers of gg4 to see if it had freeze protection and it recommends adding methanol Huh If that works for gg4 i guess you can add it to anything Huh I go out very early in the morning and i have not had the water freeze for years Wink

You can use windscreen washer fluid but methylated spirit works just as well added to your solution.  On very cold days the windchill will freeze on the glass, you'll notice that central heated rooms help also.  Past this and you probably won't be able to use your hands anyway Cheesy
