    Drop my pole twice the other day,left leaning on a window sill and then against the car,both times manage to break the Y piece that divides the water to the two jets,its a quick fix most Halfords or B&Q sell these little Y pieces.Order two new push fit T pieces from Gardiner pole systems,a 5 mm tube fits these and push them on to the ends of the jets connected it all,took about 5 mins and cost me £2,they look a bit more solid

    You need 5 mm hose get it in B&Q,Fan jets are bigger and it all fits nicely,I was using mirco bore and a 6mm Y piece but the Y piece is brittle.

    you will need a 12 mm drill bit to make the holes bigger to fit the fans they are huge compared to normal jets
