    Mine works fine at 40'. Plenty of stretch on the orange hose though. Maybe at that height you need to consider an Aquatap.

    Oddly. for the first time today my Aqua Dapter was playing up. I was doing a sky light, so its like doing a solar panel. Tugged on hose....nothing. Tried for ages and ended up taking all the sections back down..it works...back up. ok now. Did it a few times. Cold weather could play a part in it

    I have an AquaTap, and think its horrible on 3 stories never mind higher. I had an Aquadaptor before and will be going back to it for at least the longer pole. For 35ft stuff, I have to disconnect the extension hose when the clean is done as I can't turn off with the AquaTap.

    Good to know of your experience. It does appear that some Aquataps are tighter than others. There doesn't appear to be any manufacturing consistency. Too much grease; too little grease; remove an O Ring; it will loosen up an a few weeks; heard them all. The Aquadapter did have some teething problems but we have had consistently good service from them.

    I still have a MK2 with the Aluminum tube with my CLX22 pole. Its been great - couple of springs, that's it.
