1) Your pole, choose the length, brush head, tubing and connector
Guide: 17ft pole is usually ok for most ground and first floor windows in standard properties Ultralite Double Trim brush is good all rounder "Flagged" brush better if you will be cleaning facias, soft and vehicles where you might be concerned about scratching) "UnFlagged" brush better if you require slightly more scrubbing action Tubing - choose your preference. Re-inforced likely to last longer Connector: "Mini Hosetail" is best seller
2) Select the adaptor that your connector will click in-and-out of - this will depend on which connector you choose
Guide: Choose the hoselock-type pole control valve if you select either of the hoselock connectors above. If you selected "Mini Hosetail" then select the Mini Endstop - either 6mm or 8mm hosetail depending on what hose you select for your reel)
3) Select the size of resin vessel that you require (mostly this is just down to how often you are happy to replenish the resin
Guide: The resin vessels here will come full of resin and male hoselock-type fittings on the 'in' and 'out' of the head unit.
4) Select your pump & if you want a strainer (recommended in order not to invalidate the pump warranty
