Yes, I do. I had my windows replaced in 2002 (changing out 50-year-old wood with vinyl). I used Pilkington's Activ Self-Cleaning Glass.
And, I've been happy. I can clean them with water from a hose, or just let rain do it. Even when the windows are not watered-down, they are still cleaner than what my old windows were on a day-in, day-out basis.

Note that my company works with the Pilkington and I was involved in the North American launch of its self-cleaning glass. However, I didn't get the windows for my home at a discount, or have been shown any favoritism by the window manufacturer.

If you want more details, let me know.

There is a better way than having to purchase self cleaning glass. TEKON super hydorphobic coatings can be applied manually and hae a lifetime warranty.After coating the glass is ten times more break resistant because of the increased surface tension. And it can be apllied to new or existing glass, as well as marble, granite,percelean,terrazo, limestone, and more. You can visit the mfr's site at our ours at
