Can someone recommend me a good aqua adapter for my slx25 ?
There's only one type, it's a brand name. You can however buy a tap from any window cleaning website.
Are aqua dapters any good? How do they actually work
They screw to the top of your pole then you pull your pole hose and it stops the water flow. They seem to be ok, but personally i don't use them for the following reasons:
1- I've just paid a lot of money for a very light pole, I don't want extra weight at the very end of it.
2- Price- they're about £60 I think, compared to a tap which costs about £12
3- You need one for every pole, whereas a tap is on your hose & works for all your poles.
Cheers windyman. Tap it is then lol
im goin for the tap aswell lol
I started using a tap, attached to a holster. Found it to be an absolute pain. Hated being 'tied' to the hose all the time so I started to leave it on the ground and 'pinching' the hose. Moderately successful and enjoyed not having to wear a belt for working. Now I've got an aqua dapter and I think it's one of the best buys I've made. Loads of control, saving water, no belt, no holster.
I only tend to use 1 pole so I've only bought 1. The longer pole only gets used for about 3 or 4 windows at a time so I just go back to pinching on those occasions.
I do recommend the Aqua thingy.
I'm with Vito - Aquadapter all the way,
i use a tap on the main hose itself
used the aqua stuff last year tho thay are good but tbh for the money i cant see the point if thay where around £30 then maby
I've taken my aqua dapter off and just use the tap. I loose a little more water but it makes me quicker between windows as I'm not trying to pull on the dam hose to turn it off. Which always works at ground level but not always first floor and up. Plus I'm using a carbon fibre goose neck and love the lightness of the pole and how rigid it is, don't want to loose that and then adapter to use a gooseneck looks like it will make the pole too long and not as stiff.
