    One of them nicely comes down the glass (cant remember which one), but the other in beads, is there a different way to rinse between these two ways?

    A friend said fan jets weren't good unless you were experienced. What did he mean?
    Do I need to buy the whole brush to get fan jets on my pole? My current Ionics brush has pencil jets. Anyone recommendations for a fan jet brush?
     
  4. With the hydrohorrible glass, I turn the brush around so the jets are pointing up, you can actually see them rinsing the very top and corners and can make sure you're missing nothing. Seems to work for me.

    I just make sure i rinse as much of the glass as poss on phobic windows, get the jets right up to the top edge of the windows and really rinse down the glass in a sideways motion catching as much beading as possible...

    I find fan jets easy to use myself. Gardiner do brushes now with 2 sets of holes in the brush stock so when ordering you can have both type fitted if you wanted.

    Best speak to Alex Gardiner as I'm sure he can give you advice on fan jets also offers a wide selection of brushes

    Keep considering fan jets, as for phobic glass I just rinse it a lot more and take much more time over it, I hate the bloody things and still don't understand how two panes of one window can be different?

    Can hydrophilic glass be double glazed or is it only hydrophobic?

    Don't use fans on hydrofcukit, but use pencils and rinse more, going to get some rinse aid heard it works and turns glass into pholic.

    I used fan jets all the time, yes you dont get a strong single jet but the fanned water has a much better covering of the glass. They work for some and not others. Think it just depends on which you prefer working with.
