Constructor brush....



Recommended Posts

Thinking of treating my self to a constructor brush, they are expensive :/ anyone have any info about how good they are? Are they worth the money? does it speed you up much? Do you use less water?etc.... Thanks in advance.

I've been thinking the same but I personally think that as long as you have your flow rate right up there's is no need to lift your brush off the window to rinse( perfect for pvc frames). The old man made a prototype over head rinse bar for my brush and I tested it out on Georgians just agitating, no rinse and they came up perfect. I'll try post a pic of the finished article when he's finished messing about. I agree it's a lot of hassle ordering a constructor brush. they need a UK supplier.

Best brush I have used and no more water use as you on the glass less time than pencil jets . Worth every penny in my opinion . As soon as the bristles have gone you down have too buy new brush just bristles at about £15

2 questions James

1. What else did you have to order other than just the brush to fit to your pole? I use gardiner brushes.

2. how long did you have to wait on delivery? really think it's the way forward using one. Cheers in advance

That's all I do with my Ultimate Med/soft. Works perfect. Been using it for several months as my main brush and all it's bristles are all still straight and I've only lost a couple of bristles in all that time as well. What do you guys do with your brushes to destroy them so quick? Mind you I haven't used mine with hot water yet.

Pretty much scrub and rinse at the same time. Two passes over the glass and it's done most times. Don't get me wrong I don't rush, though it sounds like it. I just do the job and move on. I don't see the point on keeping on rinsing when the job is obviously done.

I scrub 2 as you then lift brush off and then rinse off thr glass.

Is this not what you do

I rinse on the glass most of the time. I only rinse off if the job demands it. But with my flow controller set to 80% it's almost as quick.

If the job is a fairly regular one which most of mine are (4 weekly), then there are seldom visible bits of dirt left after the first scrub over the glass. If this is the case then on the second pass I stop the scrubbing action and just move the brush back and forth across the window and allow a little more water to rinse down the glass. I just don't lift the brush off. I also have my flow rate set high, about 80%. In practice I use less water because I accomplish the job much quicker than when it's set low.

It takes time and practice to achieve, but I f your work allows you to do this it dramatically reduces strain to your arms especially on high work.

 

A word of caution though. If you have a particularly bad job to do, say a mingin first clean for example, then you will probably have to rinse off the glass for a few windows to allow for all the bits to flush out of your brush before you can rinse on the glass again
