    ive never had it on the higher flow rate, always on the lower flow rate too high causes splash on glass, just practise on your own to get a decent flow and leave it on that flow with the **** left alone

    I've got the wow orange back pack on only just switch it on then a slight touch moor on a normal 3 bed that is done each month I just fill it up the once an can still have a bit of water left and at the mo I don't have a tap to switch off between windows with out going back to the back pack so for me a slow to medium flow works on a regular service house

    yep me got the no tap thing....it does keep you fit running back and forward..I actually have a tap to fit but....cant see the point as you have to have the pole at different lengths...

    Being on a trolley doesnt half make you try to conserve water!

    oh its so so annoying when you are inches short of finishing and the slight tug on the hose and the trolley falls over:eek:

    fit a pushfit tap on the hose under your brush, going back into your pole, one snip, connect tap and connect hose into pushfit tap weh hey, just drop the pole to turn off. this is what im going to do, still bending down as i have my old backpack tap fitted on the beginning of my reel., to stop waterflow when needed. too many debates on aquatap and aquadapter, with springs and pins coming out.

    I bought the same kit as you about five months ago, I normally leave the switch on and turn the flow on with the **** about a quarter turn. I couldn't believe how long it lasted on its first charge, at least three months, although I only use it for windows I can't reach by ladder.
