    If you know of a local window cleaner using the pole system they will be using distilled water at 0 ppl for a streak free finish.Maybe a quick chat will get you a ltr or two.:) I used to be a window cleaner and I'm down to my last 5 gallon drum. I use it for cleaning the outside of the tank and around the home.:)

    They all use RO water now for final rinse. Some equipment in vans sucks back in the dirty water, filters it another pass at RO and ready to wash again. Our window cleaner goes a whole day with one fill of water.

    All window cleaners round our neck of the woods use white transits with the RO and filtering equipment in the back of the van and very long hoses!!!
