    Fitted two of these to a new extreme brush.

    Just cleaned my house and wow impressed so far, if you turn up the back pack pump they really do create some force!!

    Can't wait to try these tomorrow.

    Be interesting to see if they save any water.

    Very tempted to fit 4 in an extreme brush as well.

    When you say low flow does that mean the bore is really tiny, 1/2mm or something?

    standard is 2mm these are 1.4mm

    Replacement Machined Brass Water Jets, simple push in replacements for our own jetted brush heads. These jets have a 1.4mm jet hole for those that like to have half the fow rate of the standard 2mm jets.
    These are a straightforward push-fit for all Super-Lite brushes.
    These require a 4.8mm hole drilling in the back of your brush head.

    I have the red ones. The are really good but to get a good spray you need to have your flow rate set high and still only use about a litre of water per minute.

    Heavy on the pump and battery too.

    I will give the pencil jets a go as i dont like the standard ones.

    I had some of the low flow pencils, when I tried them on my house, I found them ok, but when I was working they didn't seem to put enough water on the window for me

    Yeah i could see that happening, Alex did say they are designed to be used in sets of two's ie 4 jets to a brush.

    I fancy trying them though still.

    Not bad but went back to higher flowing ones after a couple of houses.

    I think 4 of these or a mixture of high and low would be great which is what I am going todo
