    Hi guys, if your double jetting a brush is it better to have fan jets nearer the centre of the brush head and pencils on the outer or vice versa? Also is it ok to have jets on extreme outer as these seen to ve the only other pre drilled holes that fit my jets?

    Cheers

    Sorry I can't help as I don't have my brushes set up with pencil and fan jets on the same brush.
    Great idea though so worth having a play and see which works best for you:thumbsup:

    Tried putting the fan jets in. Don't seem to be spraying right and have given my brush a baldy by pulling nearly all the bristles out lol. Nightmare

    Still waiting for a brush with both jet types that can be selected for preference, probably requires solar powered microelectronics with remote control or something...

    Or maybe an inline on/off switch :D

    I believe Reach-It supply a fitting for doing just this - 'Sam Johnston' fitting or something like that.

    You mean John Guest?
    Yeah that would work, 2 T types from the jets going into another T type with a switch. You would still have to collapse the pole though or remember which of your thousands of windows are hydrophobic!

    If i'm honest fan jets seem to work well for me on both types of glass so to be honest I can't see the point myself. If for some strange reason I want pencil jets then it's just as quick to change the brush over as all of my brushes have quick loq fittings on them.
