    Hi folks

    I consider buying the Unger TelePlus Pole System with 5 sections, 2m each. I have also found some trad starter kit on cleaningspot.co.uk, which includes also the Moerman T-bar and swivel squeegee grip.

    Does anyone know if you can put the Moerman tools on the Unger Pole System? And what about Ettore T-bars and squeegee handles? Are those compatible with the Unger Pole System?

    Any advice will be most appreciated.

    The moerman swivel handle doesn't go on the ergotec locking cone. I had to mod mine by drilling it again

    Thanks mate. And would you buy the Moerman Liquidator squeegees again? How do they stand in comparison with the Unger Ninja squeegees?

    ettore doesnt fit on unger tip . i have 2 of the 5 sectioner teleplus poles in my van, well only 4 sections are carried and these are hated by all who have to use them, theyre so heavy and the clamps are a bad design [altho very long lasting]

    . HOWEVER the 1st two sections are a real joy to use as a mini pole [on their own] for lowish homes

    i use Wagtail squeegees

    The moerman swivel handle does fit the optiloc cone but very loosley and tends to pop off the peg sometimes
    I used to use the optiloc pole
    Now i use a harris decorators pole which is 5m and 15 quid from b&q
    Needs adapting to take the optiloc cone but well worth it and cheaper
    £15 for pole £9 for adjustable crank about £3 for the cone and wagtails fit better than they do on a wagtail.pole
    To be honest ninjas are sh1t
    Liquidators are excellent if you are willing to modify your technique to suit

    Very interesting, many thanks. Is there any better, albeit more expensive alternative to the Unger TelePlus Pole System? Something lighter, of as high (or similarly high) reach as the five section Unger TelePlus has, and ideally also compatible with the Unger and Wagtail tools?

    I see daveboy1 has already replied in the meantime. Optiloc, Harris, ... has anyone good experience with yet another make of pole systems?

    It's a better fit than the wagtail handle and wagtail pole

    pretty sure any waterfed pole [fitted with an unger tip ]will be better and lighter.
    i once used a long fishing pole with a Wagtail pole tip , worked great just wasnt tough enough for everyday use .
    in 8 yrs iv not ever used all 5 sections of a teleplus ,its a real Bear to use with 4 never mind 5 . 4 will reach all 3 storey buildings
