    Evening boys and girls. >:((>:((>:((

    Wow cant remember the last time I started a thread? :heartbreak:

    I use gardeners slx poles, after a while they start spinning due to wear on the pole just where the clamps are, so when I release the pole to its smallest I have to leave a gap between the clamps. Its fine when its erected :windowcleaner:.... is there anything you guys put on the pole to stop this happening. It is just wear and tear, I'm a bit gutted tho, as only use the pole 3 times a week, and this started happening 9 months later,

    Also I have 20 days off due to a small operation. will my water in the static tank and van stay clean?,

    Thanks for any help. Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and new year. Don't get to drunk. and smile and bare it with the in laws :ban:

    Do you adjust the clamps by tightening them?

    The fine when erected made me chuckle :giggle:

    dip it in a bromide solution. My slx does this i just clamp it a couple of inches from next joint. There was a vid on youtube where the pole is re lacquered good as new. ihave a backpack that i use now and again and have a few barrals that i carry water in for it i have had water in them a couple of months and the water was fine i did check the tds.

    my slx has started wearing like this, only used on around 20 custies a week and only 9 months old.

    ive just put a wrap of insulation tape on the offending area, a bit ghetto but nevermind.

    im just going to flog mine on ebay for stupid money in a few months and buy an extreme

    You shouldn't normally have an issue with water going off.

    We wish you the best with your small procedure and subsequent recuperation.

    I use bomb proof fibreglass poles and this doesn't seem to happen? Is carbon really worth it?
