Had the new du-pont ultimate out all say yesterday and can honestly say this the best brush I've ever used.

 

Light as a feather and a great scrub, an awesome brush.

Hi Alex Gardiner, do you plan too make 35cm du-pont brushes? Any idea of time scale if so?

Thanks

The amount of water you use is dictated by your pump, whatever type of flow delivery you have i e , jets, fans, rinse bar will only deliver the same amount of water.

 

So if your pump is on say 3/4 pressure it wont matter what your rinsing with the pump will still deliver the same amount of water.

 

Some delivery types are more effective than others so will require less rinsing, effectively using less water.

Personally I don't like fan jets as I cannot see the water being rinsed down the pane. I have less confidence in them, I have tested them and find spotting in the corners of some pane's.

 

That being said I'm sure there are people who have perfected the technique and are proficient with them, I always go back to jets.

good to know, thanks, moving between windows, is there a facility to turn off the jets and conserve water?

Yes mate uni valve.

 

Best bit of kit for this for ease of use, reliability and price.

cheers, seen a guy moving between windows giving the walls a wash as he went, uni valve is a must rather than crimping the hose. Thx mate

Iv not used gardiners brushes before. Been using the ones that come with the water genie poles from the cleaning warehouse in willenhall. Just wondering how the gardiners supreme brush medium is in comparison as iv just ordered a couple of them?
Also are they any good for rinsing on the glass? Have ordered them with black fan jets

You'll have a shock, Gardiner's brushes are very light.

 

I think the supreme weigh's in at around 200 gram's.

 

There is a brush guide on the Gardiner's website that show's what the brushes' are good for, and what they're not. It give's rating's for rinsing on.

you would think someone could design a universal brush but probably put the rest out of the game!

I unfortunately have a brush fetish which has cost me a fortune over the last few years. I usually use them on a couple of windows and decide to put them in the bucket in back of the van I have nearly every brush made. I am seriously thinking of flogging some as they are all as new. But my current favourite is the Supreme flocked from Gardiner, to be honest any Supreme brushes are really good highly recommend them, but the flocked is awesome.

Have you tried using the supreme specifically rinsing on the glass? If you have are they any good for it? I read only good reviews about gardiners products. The items and service so far from them has been excellent. Just had a look at their specification chart which says good for rinsing on. But always good to get the view of people that have been using them
