    Hi guys, did an office today, thought I'd show the 3mm jets on 75 flow, and what its like for rinsing,

    I'm doing it one handed whilst filming, so excuse the quality... (This is not how I would normally rinse, just showing it for demonstration purposes)

    Hope it gives you an idea of how they perform.

    They don't cause any splash back, which means ALL the water falls down the glass, thus, creating a better, more dense rinse. As no water is wasted bouncing off into the air.

    With 2nm jets, it was firing out so fast, it hit the glass and sprayed all over the shop. That was slowing the rinse, and also would be more prone to spotting, most of the water was bouncing off the glass - not good for a fast rinse.

    (Shakespeare writing or what by the way!) 'thus' - what a word!

    Better than 2mm Dave, still beads, but a nice thick flow helps it rinse better

    You just buy the 3mm jets mate, gardiner pole systems sell them,

    I just rinse very quickly across the glass maybe 3-4 times max, with the flow of these jets, it creates a 'waterfall' effect, so you don't need to rinse for long at all,

    A much larger volume of water is falling down the glass, so you spend less time doing the rinse, and also (in my opinion) save water...
