    Fan jet problem!!

    Its odd i tried the same jets in diffrent brushes and swapped them because i bought several pairs but they just all spray all over the place ! Its fine because i use a 35cm and rinse on- if not very close to the glass so it controls the spray but id would feel happier if they were uniform @Stallion yeah i like it too much to change ! And i also save loads of water

    Im pleased im not the only one who's jets get blocked Do all your jets spray out equally on a straight line ? Mine are all over the shop , i have even trimmed the bristles on the brush to no avail.

    Might be a piece of grit or something in one of the hoses, i would also disconnect all the brush fittings and flush it all through in the opposite direction. Every so often i somehow get a blockage at the brush head which interferes with the spray.

    Van/system upgrade

    What Jets do you use? When i switched to gardiners black fan jets i was able to run my pump on "4" instead of the "6" it was on before , i know its not a long term solution if your getting busy but its worth considering * meaning i was saving tons of water everyday

    Special offers from suppliers

    Europarts have a sale on this weekend , they are offering 40% off batteries amongst other sales.
  6. @kevinc250 i see a chiropractor regularly i have a long history of back problems due to a condition with my vertebrae . I dont struggle with the weight of the pole up and down or even working off to the side, its the return of energy as @Green Pro Clean Ltd put it that I think is contributing to my pelvis trouble. Im using a CLX atm and if i use it side to side i can feel my glutes twitching trying to stabilise when the pole bends a bit.
  7. Yeah i did look at the extreme as can see the weight is much lower, i was under the impression they arent very robust though? I have a few jobs where im working at an angle (over a conservatory for example) do they widthstand much other than just up and down windows ? Having re read your post what do you mean by delicate? Thats my concern with the extreme other wise its a no brainer id just get the lightest pole stiffest pole available
  8. Hi, its new pole time for me i know theres not much weight difference between an 18ft CLX and SLX im wondering if because the SLX is more rigid it puts less strain on the operator ? I struggle with bad Hips and lower back and i think having a more rigid pole will help stabilise my muscles. Cheers Ash

    Pole hose repair.

    B&Q and some handyman shops sell pvc pole hose aswell its not ideal for everyday but it would do you while you wait for delivery- alternatively use a barb to join it.
  11. I like it , id be happy with that myself. Perhaps the only improvement might be to add you clean the frames everytime (if you do) as i still see clean glass and black and green frames and i just always think why do custies accept that these days !?
  12. Couldn't of put it better myself .
  13. Hi Im going to treat myself to a new battery this weekend i have always had 115ah batteries from halfords and they have always seen me right and lasted a few years , im just wondering though does having a larger battery increase the life span ? And does it make a diffrence with its day to day voltage levels ? I dont have a split charge relay i dont do enough driving Also euro parts have 35% off this weekend
  14. So can i ask then , everyone who goes tubeless prefers it is anyone using the exceed kit ? It seems to me everybody is using a diy version Personally im happy to pay the 60 odd £ and then some to convert the rest of my poles so i have peace of mind i have a reliable leak free set up are you guys all using diy tubeless set ups without issue?
  15. @Alex Gardiner is it caused by the base of the gooseneck expanding ? It seems unlikely - i thought as it happend to both my poles it was something i had or hadnt done ? Ps im not looking for a freebie replacement! im just interested to know 😁
