    I used my new aqua tap today, easy to fit. First impressions great, then I used it on real work. I use the gardiner light sill brush. I did not need to press against the window to turn off or on, a quick flick of the wrist would do the job of turning it on or off, and thats the problem, unless you work slowly and carefully it would turn off with any sudden movement of the pole. Also when the pole is against the glass you need to apply a permanent right twist to keep the flow on.
    Am I doing something wrong.
    Any one else had this experience

    Where are you getting the washer from.
    Is it a thicker washer or are you putting 2 washers together

    Nightmare!!! Hope you get them sorted, is it made by aquadapter?

    When i saw the youtube footage of the aquatap i gotta admit i knew it weren't for me, i know the AD has its faults but i just cant see another way of doing it now, been using one for 18months now and just love em

    You should be telling peter fogwill also your issues with his product surely?
    Before you start messing with it see what he can do first as must be under some sort of guarantee.

    This is an interesting vid before you go stripping it down to see what's inside
