  1. Gardiner have started doing brushes with fanjets purchased one couple of weeks back it cost £52 with postage. well worth it awesome brush so much better with fan jets rather than pencil jets especially for streamy hydrophobic windows. Quicker all round as it covers more surface area well worth the moeny

    Yes they do use less water and gives a deeper clean because the area of coverage is wider

    i thought tyey always had the option of fanjets? do you mean the push fit nylons? i've heard they've a tendancy to break. which brush was it you got, i bought the medium dual sill, good brush ridiculously light, could do with another row or 2 of bristles and it loses them easy. have'nt made my mind up wether i prefer fan or pencil, probably fan, but i'll do a bit longer with pencils to give it a fairer comparison. next brush will probably be a soft dual, probably sill again.

    I liked the new nylon fanjets, but broke them after a fort***ht.
    Wondered if it was possibly the movement of the aquadapter that contributed
    Liked the fan jets, but back on pencils.

    I did find too that using fan jets with hot water loses a lot more heat than pencils.

    Think I may also go back to old style.
    Originally Alex said best not to use them on an extreme brush, because the stock is not very thick. Is yours on an extreme?

    About time they started doing them! I've noticed that the surface area covered by these brushes are quite wide. Do you still have to trim the brush back to allow the water from the fan jets to 'get out' so to speak?

  10. well i just snapped one of my new nylon fan jets!!!! not a happy bunny, gardiner are sending me a replacement. If i were to change over to the old style fan jets do i need to make the holes in the brush bigger?? Also the 60 degree ones, does the brush need to be clipped so the water doesnt hit the bristles
