    I have asked the same question today. Should have had the first samples by now from the new tooling. I am chasing :(

    Also got to see the final working prototype today of another hi-tech electronic flow device arriving in July :)

    Thanks for the update Alex.
    I'm still trying to pluck up the courage to place that order

    Hi Alex.

    Is your new flow control device going to be similar to the uni-valve?

    And is your new electronic device similar to the one shot remote?

    i guess the device could/would be an electronic valve at the brush head,i think x-line trialled one early on in the year or maybe last year i can't remember,
    life was so much easier when we just stood on the hose or bent it over,i always thought peter fogwill had one of the better ideas with his auto brush so simple and precise and have been thinking of making a couple for my poles as a means to swap from fans to jets at just one "knock"

    Hi Barney

    The new flow control device is similar to the Uni-Valve in that it shuts off water flow with a single motion. It is different in that it will be built-in and uses a different action to shut the water off.

    The new electronic device is similar to the one-shot remote in the way that the Model T Ford is similar to the Bugatti Veyron ;)

    Actually the main unit will be grey - The black is to imply being hidden in the shadows until after the ISSA in Amsterdam next week :)

    It is due for release in July 2016
