    Finally took a visit to gardiners and picked up some fan jets. Going to fit them at some point, was going to today but have a first clean on Thurs and didn't want to risk any problems. Might do a video while fitting them if I have time.

    I am surprised actually, when they were drying it looks like there were a few bits on the window that would not come up well but they did. They all look pretty good and no spotting. Going to take some getting used to as can't see the spray as well as jets when wanting to focus on a certain area like top edge of frames to make sure all dirt is out think it will be challenging at hights, also the rinsing on glass feels very wrong. But they all came up well.

    Rinsing on the glass will save straining your body,put a control tap on and you can slow the flow and they start to act more like pencils

    That's an idea. I did find I had to turn flow down a little anyway, if I rinsed with brush off the water spray blew on to other windows. Think brush on is the only way with fans. Just feels very odd.
