Window Cleaning Forum / Re: Earning £80,000 a year
« Last post by Crystal-clear on Today at 12:45:59 am »
Donít think heís talking about 80k profit in his sales job. Thatís probably his wage. After tax itíll be a lot lower.

People donít tend to only say there take home pay in the employed world. They just say what they earn salary wise.

So Iím guessing he means turning over 80k a year...

It's the same concept £80,000 profit as self-employed for example is literally your gross so same as your salary £80,000 salary both figures will now be taxed based on your personal tax circumstances. So £54933 as PAYE £56020 as self employment.(just entered that in calculator)

If hes making 80k net after tax he'll need to be on £135k.And if you make £80k net running about in van alone you'll need 180k+ cos of vat n expenses
you'll prob have your tendons amputated before you tell the tale  :D

I've tried soaking glass from top to bottom to wet cement then running pure continuously down the glass whilst scraping gently with a razor blade and it still left tiny scrape marks. Minute but obvious if you knew where to look.

Never tried chems so good luck

Jonny Iíve said this about 8 million times now, I was told itíd be a couple of hours. Hence why I stayed in Royston.

When I rung after 2 hours  (not emailed) I was told by the well spoken phone guy (who works for them as a telephone man 👨)  that it will be done soon. Again, hence why is didnít go the Cambridge etc.

I was also on my own, so not really bothered about site seeing, just wanted it done.

Again, this was 2016. Iím sure Oliver has probably learnt from this.

You can only go by your own experience 👍🏼

Probably should have spent the day in Cambridge, Zesty. 🤷‍♂️

Back to the old way of things  ,  have been using the van starter battery to power pump and diesel heater for nearly a year now  , but itís bitten my arse twice in the last month .
Has still been running heater and pump but didnít want to start the van .
Donít think the alternator and solar could keep up with demand , was using a Numax XV24MF at 86 amp , just not enough of a power bank , more so now itís no longer solar season !
Have now got this bad boy to run the heater and pump whilst leaving the XV24MF as the van battery .
I will connect the solar to the new battery but also charge at night , not what I wanted but hey ho !


instead of charging each night, fit a split charge relay to charge the pump battery while the alternator is running. 4 wires needed, One from ignition live, one from van battery live, one to body earth and one to pump battery. Run an earth from pump battery to body earth, this completes the circuit.
I posted a wiring diagram/ code on another thread in this section.

I thought about a Durite SCR to connect my 2 bats but I am of the belief that my 10 mile journey each way to and from my area just isnít enough to harvest the 30 amps I use each day ?

General Cleaning Forum / Gutter cleaning without ladders?
« Last post by Paul79 on Yesterday at 10:51:51 pm »
Been speaking to a few people and they are telling me to add gutter cleaning to my list of services especially this time of year when leaves and such are a plenty. Iíve been doing some research and watching some videos on it but the thought of ladders to the roof is far from appealing for me.

Not only am I afraid of heights but I am also accident prone Iíll be honest so Iím wondering if this is viable and doable without even owning a pair of ladders?

I canít help but think that the battery was tricked into thinking it was full when it wasnít, with this going on over the almost year I reckon that the memory was damaged .
The alternator was charging at 14.2 all the time , but alongside this I had the MPPT doing itís bit as well , I wonder if the alternator got tricked into thinking the battery was full and cut back the charge , maybe the solar was doing the same ?
Whenever the engine was running it told me I was in absorb or float , the minute it was switched off it jumped to bulk .
Maybe the way to make the most would have been to flick the solar off whilst the engine was running and to flick it on whilst working , would this have stopped any conflict of the two charging sources ?
On Thursday I got home with float on the VictronConnect app , I let the battery rest and then put the mains charge on it , it didnít register as charged for over 4 hours !

Question Spuce , what charger would you recommend for my 31MF

I put my halfords advanced jobbie on it when I got it home from the shop with it set on sealed setting and it didnít register as charged even after 5 hours, I then switched to standard and within 10 minutes it hopped to maintain charge ?

Window Cleaning Forum / Re: Removing cement off windows and frames
« Last post by RPCCS on Yesterday at 10:30:22 pm »
There are products on the market to remove cement (google them) but they can be nasty stuff, I had one cement remover which had been sitting in my shed for a few years, it melted the container it came in dripped down and put a hole in the concrete floor of the shed.
If I can scrape it off with my fingernail when damp then I will remove it if not then its up to the person who let it dry on the glass to get it off.

Tile cleaner can work well but is also fairly caustic.
Brick cleaner removes it, but like you say, very acidic, and can damage the glass.
