Hi Guys

How often should I change the rubbers on my squeegee?

I am using soft rubber, some people say daily, some says half a day some say weekly?

Hi John
          I change mine daily. The cost of the rubber is outweighed by the faster work Wink

i think we are all different..once i left myn untill it had wore holes in the ends!! very silly of me ...i did this as a bet with my m8 to see who could last the made me twice as slow and i lost about 5 customers...i blamed it onj him though so it wasnt all bad..but nowadays i try to change themm when i start seeing lines and like steve said.when it starts slowing me down...basicly the more the better really it cant hurt!...justs costs but it you get them from the  sponsers of this site  then it wont be so bad Grin
