    It would cause spotting as the Jets would fire into the frames a lot when rinsing...

    i clean all the frames every time so spottings not a problem & i rinse on the glass so its just a continuous flow downwards

    That's cool,

    might work then, for me it would spray up even higher than the frames when rinsing, might bring dirt down...

    The only way you will have heavier flow is if you have increased the flow controller.

    I always use fan jets however I use mine on the horizontal, I have one 4 jet brush for connys and UPVC that has 2 horizon and 2 vertical, just to make sure that I get really good coverage rinsing off all the crud.

    I just point blank didn't like fan jets to be fair, rinsing took forever as it's more of a mist,

    I find pencil jets (3mm in my case) were much faster at rinsing, more water falling,

    I found the mist type spray just covered the window, but was slow to 'fall' down the glass - which really annoyed me lol, it was just too slow, and I'm impatient. I like a fast rinse,

    Shame, as I really wanted to like fan jets!

    Seems to work for others though, so must be a preference thing I suppose

    I went through a faze of using fans all the time because I liked the hissing noise :D. Pencil jets for more accuracy IMO. Talking of vertical jets, does anyone else rinse Georgian windows with the pencil jets above each other? Nice fast flow!
