  1. Hozelock fittings leaking

    It's also known as plumbers tape. You will get it from b&q, homebase, screwfix etc or any plumbers merchant. You need to wrap the male threads, in a clockwise direction about 10 times. The wraps have to be tight, I reckon this is where your leak is.[emoji106] Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app
  2. Hozelock fittings leaking

    The "Male" parts which screw into the vessel head should be wrapped with PTFE tape.... and plenty of it. This WILL seal the leak if this is where it's coming from. I run twin DI's, all with Hozelock type fittings leak free for 14 years. I also find the best fittings to be B&Q's own brand- the "Blue" ones.
  3. Gardiners Swivel Angle Adaptor Review

    Here is a MKII swivel. It only pivots on one axis even though it looks otherwise. [emoji1] [emoji1] Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    I know I have at least One somewhere in the van, I will see if I can find it tomorrow and post a pic' just for nostalgia's sake!![emoji3] [emoji3] I used to drill a small hole right through the cup and ball and insert a pin/nail to prevent the two parts popping out from each other!![emoji1] Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    The brush is a Salmon/Hill brush conversion. The swivel IS DIY, taken from another application which originally allowed dual axis movement. However, if you look very closely, the vertical axis has been fixed by Two tiny screws to hold it static at the correct angle. Then the fitment was adapted to fit a threaded pole end. Gaz never let on where these came from and hours of research by various people also proved fruitless! In the end, his supply ran out and he subsequently offered a different "ball joint" type unit- these WERE freely available to buy though via a little "Googling" and so the Gaz swivel era was finished- The MKII ball joint type were very poor in comparison. We do owe a lot to it though!

    How far back do you go with swivels Eric, do you remember the MkI and MkII Gaz swivels,[emoji16] Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Maybe it's the distance on an angled assembly which makes the difference? I am speaking from experience with Gardiner's 90 degree versions- Imo there is no difference between the QL and the direct fit 90 degree fitments. However, once you angle it, not just the swivel action improves but the whole user experience. The pole and brush work so much more harmoniously with an angled head assembly.

    My univalve is held on by one plastic cable tie at either end then via JG push fit connectors- I can easily disconnect it at any time. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    No, the issue is the angle of the pivot point. A 10mm difference in pivot placement has no affect on a 90 degree swivel IMO but the angle does. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Funnily enough, the same happened to me. I had been using the angled one for a couple of weeks and then reverted back to the 90 degree QL version as I needed a different brush for a particular job. It was when I changed back to the 90 degree version that I realised just how much better the angled one was! Never used the QL one since!

    I honestly don't know how people manage without them. Been using them for well over a decade, us veterans used to have to make our own!![emoji16][emoji106] Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    How did you get on with it?
  14. Di . Before or after the pump

    Sounds like you have air in the system- which compresses and builds pressure. Also, change any rubber O rings which should help. Sent using the http://Window Cleaning Forums mobile app

    Yes you are correct. Used mine this way for about 14 years.[emoji106]
