Window Cleaning Issues - Canvassing, pole systems, pricing, problems, etc.
Do suppliers actually use the equipment they sell
Posted by ajwindows (ajwindows), 24 July 2003I bought a new Unger washer frame the other day which for a peice of plastic wasnt cheap. More irritating than that though is every time you take it out of the bucket the handle collects a small amount of water which runs down your arm when you start to use it. Surely it wouldnt take much effort to put a hole in the base so the excess water actually fed into the sleeve from the inside. This would also save plastic which could be reflected in the price!!
Maybe I should patent the idea if no-one else has thought of it already

Posted by Polepro (Polepro), 18 August 2003Ott's washer T bar has a hole at the end inside the handle, perhaps the guy who designed it got a wet arm too some time in his life maybe when he was a window cleaner.
Posted by krob (krob), 20 August 2003 I think some of them do as you can get good advise sometimes - the idea of the drain hole is good but not patentable
