    Is it good practice, does it work good enough on residential?

    I have fan jets on 2 of my brushes and thought I might give it a go, depending on feedback from here. Is there a technique to it?

    Don't like fan jets, personally pencil work better for me.

    Ha, I just read that in the fan jet comp thread. I love the sound of fan jets and the spray.

    Personally I wouldn't trust it, any muck on the brush above the jets could leave muck on windows. But there are guys that didn't it.

    DT is better but you could always tilt the vikan onto one side to rinse on the glass too. But make sure your vikan is kept clean whilst doing so. ;)

    I'm far too lazy so have always rinsed on glass above ground floor. After say that would rinse off the glass with a flocked bristle brush as they tend to hold in trapped dirt. :rolleyes:

    I don't like rinsing on the glass. There is a few triples I would tho just because the clx27 is mr floppy stretched out and it's just easier to rinse on the glass..
