And cheaper than recent Lidl offering (about £18).

Never used one. Can anyone comment on their effectiveness? Will they clean a gummed up carburettor like the professional services do?

You'll need some de-greaser/surfactant/detergent 'stuff' for heavy duty cleaning. For £17 I'd give it a go...

No, it won't be very effective on a gummed up carburettor.
You are more likely to get better results using an acidic cleaner and hard brush action.

I used to sell ultrasonic cleaning tanks both to the garages and jewellers.
Without getting too technical yes you need a suitable detergent/chemical/cleaning agent to get the best result.
The jewellers use high frequency tanks to get a gentle cleaning action.
The garages use low frequency tanks to get an aggressive cleaning action.

The advertised bath clearly states for gentle cleaning hence not suitable for workshop use really.

Thanks both - advice appreciated.

Electrolube Safe Wash is a very good cleaner from my experience. I'll try and pick one of these up, will come in handy I'm sure.

Doh! Just ordered one from Maplin - sigh
