    I have a normal gutter pole with the standard nozzle at the top but sometimes it doesn't fit in some gutters, omnipole want £40 plus vat for a smaller nozzle is that a good price?

    You could always try making your own or get someone to make them for you. The blue and orange flexi nozzle that I got with my omni vac now needs replacing too.

    Trouble is the smaller/narrower the nozzle the more time you can spend keeping unblocking the thing. Thats one of the reasons why I sometimes find it quicker to clear narrow gap gutters by hand.

    H-Man has some vids on how to heat plastic pipe so might be worth having a go with some as looks easy to make the plastic soft enough to bend and shape it how you want.

    I cut an angled section off the orange nozzle, so it has a slightly bigger inlet which helps a bit.
