What Is Pure Water Window Cleaning?
Waterfed window cleaning works on the premise of using pure water to clean surfaces. This leaves a spot-free finish, which eliminates the need to use soaps and chemicals, or having to squeegee every window after cleaning it. A purification system will take the source water and remove the impurities before it is fed through your window cleaning pole and brush, through deionization, and/or reverse osmosis. There are several different types of systems, and they purify your source water in different ways. For a comprehensive understanding, check out our Understanding Waterfed Guide to learn more.
How Do You Clean with Pure Water?
To actually clean windows with pure water, tap water is run through the stages of a system, through waterfed hose, and then up the pole to a waterfed brush. The user will pre-rinse the frames and glass, scrub with your waterfed pole, and rinse again.
Pure water systems are divided based on whether you will work with hard or soft water. Consider working with total dissolved solids (TDS) of under 100 as soft and over 100 as hard. If you're unsure what water is in your coverage area, check your TDS here. Our systems feature different stages of filtration to ensure water is pure through either DI or RO/DI filtration. Replacement filters, parts, and fittings are available when you need them to keep your system running efficiently.
How Do Waterfed Poles Work?
Pure water cleaning makes use of waterfed poles to reach windows at any height. The brush at its upper end lifts off the dirt from windows and other surfaces while the water loosens up and rinses the debris away. It’s crucial to use purified water to ensure the glass dries clear, as the lack of minerals in pure water attracts dirt and pulls it off surfaces as it rinses and dries. You will benefit from durable waterfed equipment that lasts for a long time. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned waterfed expert, XERO Waterfed Poles stand out as an exceptional choice, enabling you to tackle any height or dirty window proficiency and and ease. The XERO line offers quite a few options, so you are sure to find the best waterfed pole for you. Explore more with Ten Reasons to Choose a XERO Pole.

What Size water fed pole do I need?
Step one is to determine the length you need for pure water cleaning based on the height of jobs you'll be taking on. Will you be working on low buildings with one or two stories or large structures with up to five stories? Although their telescopic design allows you to work with varying lengths locked in, you don't want to end up with a product that's too long and heavy if you only work on low jobsWaterfed poles come in various materials, such as aluminum, fiberglass, or carbon fiber, with varying levels of stiffness and weight. Each one is equipped with a brush to get you started, but there are many others to choose from when you want to upgrade or change it out. Feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the choices?

How to Choose Your System
When you decide to jump into waterfed window cleaning, the most important thing to consider is the average TDS of your area, which will help you determine how powerful your system will need to be. For example, if you live in an area with a TDS of 100-150, a XERO Triple Pure will be significant overkill for water purification unless you are working with a team on huge commercial jobs and operating multiple poles at once. Instead, we would suggest a XERO DI Tank or a Unger HydroPower Single Stage. Most customers fall somewhere between a XERO Pure and XERO Pure MAX Plus. Once you figure out your TDS, the next consideration is similar to the previous question and what the majority of your jobs will be, such as residential or commercial. If you are a residential window cleaner, the XERO Pure or Pure Plus will be enough, but it is always good to snag some additional advice from a product specialist.
