Recommend me a rotating hose bristle brush for polycarbonate glass.

Hi all,

We have a rather nice covered veranda ('Terassenüberdachung' in German) and I'm looking for a rotating brush-thingy for cleaning it.

Some that I have seen for sale have bad reviews, with users claiming that the bristles scratch the polycarbonate - although this could be caused I suppose by dislodged sand & dirt going round the bristles, rather than the bristles themselves....

It's bloody hard to clean effectively as the dust, dirt and sand gets 'baked on' by the sun and doesn't want to shift.

Any ideas gratefully received - I should add that I don't really want to buy a pressure washer.

Polycarbonate will scratch very easily.

I would use a bespoke cleaner for organic growth.

4 x 5 Litre Concentrate Jarder Spray & Leave Cleaner - Patio Fencing Decking - Moss Mould & Algae Killer https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B017PD8S..._R0SOzbPQFNFGZ

Spray and soak as the instructions then use it again with a very soft brush or maybe APC and MF towels.

I've had a think, and a bit of an improvise, and I think I've worked it out!

I put about 5kg of barbell weights in an old lambswool washmitt, zip-tied it shut, attached it to a telescopic pole and washed the roof using the 2BM. It worked a treat and cost basically nothing, so that's one tool I won't need to buy!
