    Gardiner new brushes coming out soon....

    Now already they come with 4 holes so you can order them with both wide fan & pencil jets fitted if you wanted.

    Not tried fan yet, but every time I research them I come away thinking pencil is better, need to try them at some point.

    I never got on with fan jets , had ionics poles and the fan jet wash on the angle head which I always manages to smash off , very happy with pencil jets and think they use less water

    Tried pencils but switched to fan jets & haven't looked back!
    High flow, rinse on the glass... sped me up no end!
    Strange but true... a higher flow with fans allows me to use less water than I did with pencils!

    What brush do you use? I'm using the Gardiners flocked ATM, it feels as though the bristles are like needles.
