    Hi i just bought a couple of pairs of fan jets as I heard they where good and hope they clean better on the glass. Anyone got any tips. I tend to clean at about 27 but heard you need to bump to up.

    Best try fan jets on different flow rates to see what works best for you.

    I use mostly hot water and fan jets with a digi controller set about 60 or above depending what I'm doing. That's using a 5 lpm pump but I want to try out a 10 lpm pump next year as I've heard good things being said about the larger pumps saving time on wfp.
