    It it is good - useful for saving water
    But I hate the thick orange pole hose it comes with

    Best thing since Mr Hovis decided to make life easier for people with blunt knives.

    Get spare springs though. I've not had a grommet problem.

    Don't get their red hose for use with hot water (unless you use hot water), dreadful to work with - to stiff, won't uncoil properly.

    Was using a tap till recently. Aquadapter is great, faster to use, use less water.

    No problems at all

    Don't like em, prefer taps you can alter the flow rate and they work every time, are cheaper, and last longer, ok got pole hose but so what doesn't bother me, oh and no weight at top of pole, pros 5 cons 1.

    only problem is with Aquadaptor is is that when your in Bushes or awkward places or working down a high set of window its a strain reaching for the end of the pole to shut off the water . plus they have no AD for hose outside of poles or Modular poles ( saying that should not be too difficult to fix that ) , in a perfect world . i was thinking about velcro-ing a remote on / off switch on my left wrist and using my right hand to turn it off. like these below for example

    you could even place this on your pole where ever you want and quickly remove and place somewhere else at will
