WFP Height Guide

While purchasing the right water fed pole for your needs is important, with Gardiner poles, it’s not an end-all decision. That’s because Gardiner poles are modular, giving your tons of flexibility and use for different-sized projects.

For example, say you have a 27-foot Gardiner Sectional WFP. That pole is a great length for residential work because you can easily clean 95% percent of homes with that pole. But what if you have a home on a hill and you need a little extra reach? Rather than having to purchase a new, longer pole, or turn down the job, you can simply add an extension. The extension costs less than you will likely make on the job, and now you’re set up for higher cleaning projects.

Yes, there are some other modular poles on the market, but none are as rigid or lightweight as a Gardiner. The lighter and more rigid your WFP, the easier and less tiring it is to use. Easier cleaning means more productive workers, and that, in turn, means more profit.
