Revolutionary pure-water & water-fed pole window cleaning technology
An overview of the best modern window cleaning methods, techniques, and tools
How does water-fed pole window cleaning work?
The way we wash windows is unique. Our water-fed pole window cleaning system works like an enhanced version of the spot-free rinses at drive-through car washes.
- First, we loosen the dirt on your windows and frames using a wet brush.
- Then we pump filtered and de-ionized water up the pole and out the brush to rinse your windows.
- This extremely pure, de-ionized water leaves no marks or trace when it dries, even if it’s raining.
- No invisible residue is left behind, so your windows stay shiny for months afterward.
The technology behind it
Water in its purest form (rainwater, depending on the pollution where you live) has zero Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in it. Purified water is well known to be a great cleaning agent for many applications such as cleaning clothes and taking showers. Those of you that have children more than likely have bathed your kids in purified water, and of course mix the baby formula in it as well.
Pure mineral free water naturally wants to bond with minerals, dirt, and organic material. It’s all part of the natural cycle that our planet produces. So when water passes through carbon, sediment and RO filters, then on to DI resin, it is nearly as good as rainwater in purity (with regards to mineral and some chemicals that have been removed from the water).
When the water is purified, it is forced through hoses to our water-fed pole delivery system. It travels up the pole to a brush.
How the window gets clean is by agitating the dirt on the glass. The water acts as the lubricant to break the bond between the dirt and the glass, and then when the glass is clean, a rinse is given so that all contaminants are rinsed away.
Utah’s Window Washing’s water-fed pole system can also be used in the rain as rainfall will not re-activate any soap residue that causes white rain spots.
Our $10,000 window-cleaning system does a far better job than any traditional squeegee. This is why locals rely on us for their window cleaning needs.
Utah’s Window Washing uses the most advanced water-fed system with carbon fiber poles. This means we don’t have to use ladders, lifts or staging. With these poles, we can clean windows up to 110 feet high.
The carbon fiber poles push water up through the brush onto the glass. This water has been filtered six times: the first five times through a five-stage reverse osmosis system, and then lastly, through a final filter that de-ionizes the water, thereby removing all potential for water spots.
While there are cheaper, heavier poles made from aluminum or fiberglass, we do not use them. These poles tend to bend and operators are less likely to be able to control them at higher levels.
How does water-fed pole window washing save you money?
In the window-cleaning industry, prices are high due to risk. Hiring expensive lifts and using traditional commercial window-cleaning techniques also inflates prices. Because there are no risks and no lifts required with our system, we save time, effort and money, and pass those savings on to you.
Every commercial job is different, which is why setting one price is difficult. However, we can tell you that our system saves our clients about 35% to 40% of their total cleaning costs, on average.

Are water-fed poles and de-ionized water safe for my windows?
Water-fed pole cleaning is very safe for your windows. The poles that we use are made from pure carbon fiber, making them lightweight and easy to control. Additionally, we use pure water that leaves no spots after drying. With our system, commercial window washing has never been better!
Are the poles heavy? How do you keep control?
We use carbon fiber poles, which are the lightest and easiest to control at heights up to 110 feet.
The poles that we currently use are made from pure carbon fiber. Previously, we used aircraft grade aluminum poles. However, we have found them to be outdated in comparison to the more rigid and lighter, taller water fed poles that we are using now. The poles weigh approximately six pounds or less.
When using the poles at heights of more than 60 feet, we station one person on the roof, securing the top of the pole with a rope until the pole can be lowered and easily controlled from the ground.
On top of the pole is a nylon monofilament, flocked bristle or hogs’ hair brush head with a small channel that releases a constant supply of pure water. First, we clean the frames and then the glass by moving the brush head over them. We then rinse the windows and frames and leave a spot-free finish.
We offer safe, complete and efficient window cleaning in Utah County. Get in touch with us today to schedule an appointment.
Are any chemicals used during this filtration process?
We don’t use any chemicals in our process. All our filters contain only natural elements such as salt, resin beads and carbon sediment. We use a five-stage reverse osmosis filtration process — as well as a final filter that de-ionizes the water.
Additionally, our tools and methods are totally safe for the environment. Since we add no chemicals to our water, you do not have to worry about affecting the environment.
Where can I learn more about pure water and water-fed pole cleaning systems?
Our system is very unique, and there is limited information available on the web at this point. However, you can read a few more details about water-fed poles and pure water cleaning systems on window cleaner supplier J. Racenstein’s site.
Can the water damage or stain my property or building?
The water that we use cannot damage or stain your building or property. In fact, it is so pure that it leaves no marks after it dries. This is because our water goes through a five-stage reverse osmosis process before passing one last time through a final filter that de-ionizes the water. More damage is caused from pollution in the rain or atmosphere.
