    I have been cleaning top floor tenement flats but some have deep ledges and you have to have the pole at quite an angle to reach the bottom hopper on window with a standard adaptor, but with standing so far out causes pole to arc quite a bit. Just wondered if anyone uses a long angle adaptor and how you find it at height. Would mean I wouldn't have to have pole at such a steep angle

    Cheers

    Yes I use one. That's what you need in that situation. I have a hotel (old country style) that has very recessed windows. With a normal angle adaptor the pole section rubs on the stone sill & the brush can't reach the bottom of the glass. I have to use a long neck one for these.;) This is for the top ones 40ft up.

    add another angle adaptor so you have two. I have that on the end of my SLX40. The alloy goose-neck I bought a number of years ago is to awkward to use at that height. I manage fine with the double adaptors.

    Or you could do this if you have a Quick- LoQ gooseneck??
    This is a quick -- loq extension allows you to make your goose neck longer without having buy a whole another goose neck.

    Just to confirm the actual size of the plastic pipe you use before it is heated up and shaped to form quick loq bits you make.
