    Just wanted to ask a question, i have decided to mod one of gardiners brush heads and turn it into a quad jet brush to switch between Fan and Pencil jet at ease. I was going to run fan on the inside and pencil outside, Now has anyone seen any better results with hydrophobic glass using a fan jet? or would it be better running 4 quad pencil jets at once? I know a few ways i can do this just wondering if anyone does this too?

    I've used quad jets on my brushes, works really well, got to have flow turned up to get the same flow out of 4 jets as you get out of 2 jets,
    Makes rinsing very quick.

    How about 4 of the 1.4MM PENCIL jets he sells, i wanted todo this, but not had time.

    FYI a new brush i bought (from gardiner) had 4 holes (normal sized brush)

    So could be a new theme :)

    Hmmm that would solve turning up the flow rate i suppose? Have you tried them? Sure they are not too thin a jet?

    Yer I never been one for fan jets either, just not powerful enough to move bits on windows,

    Two 1.4mm jets is not enough for window cleaning, but i think 4 could work. But then 4 x 1.4mm jets would = 2 x 2mm jets LOL!
