Putting soap on windows using wfp


#1

If windows are very dirty I have been putting soap on my brush and then cleaning the window first with soap. I can usually hit two or three windows with my brush and get soap on all three but then I have to drop my pole down again. What I would really like is a remote control device with soap in it and mounted at my brush so I don’t have to keep lowering my pole down. You wouldn’t use it a lot but I have cleaned windows that didn’t turn out very good and I went over them with soap and they were perfect after. Got any ideas?

Put soapy water in a high powered squirt gun and blast the windows you need soaped up.

On select occasions I have used a pump sprayer adapted to a second pole hose that feeds the pencil jets on my brush (I have a rinse bar for rinsing).

Most pump sprayers use 5/16” rigid tubing after the trigger, so it’s a simple matter of swapping the wfp tubing into the compression fitting on the trigger.

Carrying around the pump sprayer and dealing with the extra hose is a real pain, though. Only situation I really use it are for jobs where I need a sodium hydroxide solution to melt oil-based stain off of the glass.

I have the same idea as Rocky, just haven’t come up with a good solution. Keeping an eye on this one.


#5

The Squirt gun idea might just work for now, if you can hit the windows right on without getting soap on other things.

I drip about a 1/4oz GG3 on my brush and scrub as many windows as I can without the water on, run a little bit of water when the brush dries out to re-activate the soap, scrub a few more windows. The problem is it takes a while to get all the soap out of boars hair and that can ruin your rinse, just have to use a lot more water to free up all the soap.

Have heard that Tucker has an adapter for this. Expecting other companies might also. I would really like to see a good system for this because I am working on a chemical/product to make glass hydrophylic. As I start my Meets around new England down to PA I will be working with guys on this idea along with the Super Soaps. Alex, I have really got to get over there this year. Look around for a location/restaurant where we can plan a Meet. I am working with Ricky of Critics Choice on my first Meet down in Fishkill for March 8th a Friday. This is going to be a lot of fun.
