    I have a sure flow pump controller ( the one with a blue face and has settings 0-99... )

    Just wondering who uses these type what # do you have it set on?

    I have mine on around 25 as any higher seems to be a bit fast and splashes everywhere, or is splashes ok?

    Don't ave a controller, just set te pump to what feels right for me, and tats the key, what's right for you. If you work slow, having the water going like niagra falls is a waste of water, conversely if you work fast, having it trickle will either slow you down or not be a sufficient clean( possibly). When you're getting the feel for it, a litre a minute is a decent yardstick

    I've got a flowtek remote control one,.. I use mie on about 65, but my battery is knackered so it pumps a lot slower than you'd expect with that setting!

    As I'm only on my first time with the pole for everyone, some have been new first cleans, but have been scrubbing frames, rinsing frames, scrubs glass, rinse then rinse..

    Yes mark hopefully will have an aqua in next week or 2, a nice red one to match my clx!

    See for the glass you rinse and it scatters all in wee lines everywhere? And not off in sheets as I heard someone call it? Do any one ever get spotting with these as it dosent seems to rinse it properly. I seen a video someone putting vinegar in the water Nd that's meant to stop it?

    I watched a video where some bloke used some kind of cloth and that turned the glass into the sheeting kind
