    What do you guys use?
    I found that fan jets didnt do a good job for me, they only seem to be good for cleaning glass roofs.
    so i use 4 pencil jets on each brush.

    4 ??? did you fix that your self, i've never tried fans but in this weather when lots of windows are open i'd think they would be a bit of a problem with spray

    yer 4 x 2.5mm jets, i make up all my own poles and brushes get a nice spread of water across the whole brush with out it coming out to fast, very fast at rinsing off!

    I think it's all much of a muchness, pencils are a bit easier to control, fans may use a tad less water, but I think fans sound good!
    The're both fine choices, whatever floats your boat

    yer i thought fans would be great! but the water doesnt seem to come out that well for rinsing of windows, but work well on glass roofs!
    i cleaned 2 house with fan jets had to go back to one and it left some spotting! never had a problem with jets yet

    no, i find i use the same if not less. coz the pressure is split between 4 instead of just 2, plus the pump has a controler on it so that also helps

    used fan jet for about two years and find them great, i do have my pump on flat out so probably makes a diffences. great for first cleans as the water get spread across the glass easier and as for open windows should turn water off before lifting off glass, yes i even rinse on the glass
