    I have just changed from trad to wfp was wondering if u can rinse with the brush still on the window. I ask because I have house which has 3 floors and I need to use a 30ft pole to reach the top windows. The pole and brush r heavy and difficult to control for the rinse at that height

    I have one or two 3 storey houses. Even using an SLX-35 with carbon neck and Xtreme brush, it's still hard to control. Try using a gutter to rest the pole to give yourself a bit of accuracy, or you can rest the brush on the side frame and rinse from there or rinse while you scrub.

    Hopefully its hydrophilic nigel that'll make it much easier if you have a monofilament brush as tenchy says

    You can twist the pole as well as you rinse down the glass to reduce sideways movement of the pole.
