    Do fan jets use more water than pencil jets or are there more holes but smaller.

    Fans are no good at all on first time cleans or rinsing off the glass going back to pencils you don't need anything else.

    Fanjets generally use about the same amount of water. Personally I much prefer pencil jets as it is easier to get a curtain effect of water which rinses the glass well.

    I have been carrying out extensive comparisons this week, just compare how much water splashes on the ground with pencils compared to fans, fans DEFINATELY put time on the job.

    Thank you all. Il be sticking with the pencil jets, The thing that did suprise me was Alex comment that pencils were easier to get a curtain effect of water, thats why i was thinking of using fan jets a lot of windows i clean the water is beading and i thought a wide spread of water would get it to run. I am sticking to the pencil jets as i no Alex as a product developer must run loads and loads of tests. Again thank you all
