    Hi. I Have been using the one shot the problem I have is when I run the Di after my pump and I push the button on the remote It takes its time to stop the water coming out ( is that down to the pressure in the D I unit ). Now I've been putting pure straight into my van and done away with the Di in my van and the one shot stops instantly. Can I run the Di befor the pump and it still stop Instantly thanks

    I have an ibc tank, so pump my water straight into the van and my one shot works great like this. I know this is little help, but just saying the less obstacles the flow of the water has whilst working will probably help

    When I use the water from tank to pump to pole the one shot is great. But if I go tank to pump to di then pole it takes ages For the water to go off ( think it may be the pressure in the Di ? Do u think I could put the Di befor the pump and the one shot work Instantly thanks

    Or get a univalve and stop start instantly with no fumbling for the fob

    That comes up every time the one shot is mentioned. I have univalves on every pole, but as I've said before, if you are behind a house and the customer wants to chat, you can press the one click, and turn off the pump stone dead and chat away knowing there is no back pressure banging on your pump.
    I use my univalve when collapsing the pole to do the downstairs windows but the one click for any longer stoppages

    Each to their own
    It was just a suggestion to solve that particular problem
    I like the 1 shot also

    Why isn't your pump cutting off?

    The pump is cutting off but when I'm running the Di in the van it can take 15 seconds to turn off and when u are at the back of the house ur not sure if it's turned off. But when no Di in the van turns off straightaway. So I wondered if I run the Di befor the pump would that work
