TFR is good, but you will halve your time with FPS and more importantly no scrubbing AND the end result is a shine that water beads on.
trust me once you have tried FPS you will not go back to TFR.

I bought 5L of TFR concentrate in order to try it and I consider it throw away, the extra time required to mix it, scrub with it and be left will a clean but dull finish just isnt worth it.

RIB Cleaner test report

I will use the TFR up on my bilges after an oil change or something.

One big difference I have noticed with FPS is that the bubbles stay white or just go dirty. With some of the other tube cleaners I have used, I have had tube coloured bubbles which can't do much for the tube!

Don't know if this stuff works better on PVC, but I tried some earlier today on Avon hypalon and didn't find it to be any better than TFR.

These two pictures show the before and after condition of the orange tubes of my delta. Just sprayed it on and spread it over the area. Coated the rest of the side then hosed and sponged the FPS off and hey Presto.
