    I can't imagine how you put this on the top, but you twist the bottom of the pole?

    Peter fogwell thinks it about two weeks away from being released. Window cleaning magazine just posted a trailer on YouTube. Looks good.

    Smurf has highlighted a few issues that he can see without even using it.

    "However my only concern is you know how annoying when a clamp on a pole allows the brush to spin when wanting to use the brush on a different angle to clean say conservatory roof frames, gutters, fascia, etc. Then that tap would probably drive me nuts because surely you will not be able to stop the brush from turning on the pole due to how the tap works and will either stop or start the water flow to boot?"

    i have expressed the same concerns, but Smurf has expressed it better.

    But that's not the point. It was promoted at a very lightweight on/off tap - and it is. What we then find out is the tap needs a pole specific adaptor. Add this to the Aquatap and the weight isn't much less than an Aquadapter. Although price is important, weight is what most create about with the AD.

    Yes that is good point Spurce and I have thought the same. I mainly rinse on the glass which I think would limit the spinning. Cant make a true verdict till I have tried it out for a couple of days
