    We are gathered here today to pay final respects to our honored and respect Facelift Pole. But it should be noted that its death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved pole gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my pole, I can only say this: of all the poles I have encountered in my travels, facelift was the best.

    It is recent, happened today. I was told there was a design flaw on the section after the red clip. There waiting on a new part being sent out. I spoke to aqua-adaptor. There sending a replacement out

    I don't see it as a design flaw, more of a fail safe if you ask me. The only reason im not pissed is it happened on the part thats is replaceable. If this snapped on any other pole I would need a hole new top section or pole I believe.

    I would have been annoyed if Richards brush arrived today lol .

    Can you not just cut it down and make a short pole, so you can use it on bungalows or shop fronts?

    Why would I want to do that the pole its self is fine. The section above the red clip comes out so you can eaily fit a new part. Thats the part that broke. Its replaceable

    In my opinion because of this its probably better. You still dont know how this happned. Im not sure what would happen with a gardeners pole if if went though the same as this pole. Put it this way if it snapped in the same place you would need a hole new to section. Where as I only need a small part which costs next to nothing I believe.
