    Yeah mate they reach 2nd and over connies, they're heavy and a bit too flexible though especially when ya have to go over a connie from an angle but they do the job. I did extend mine but took the extension off again cos the weight was just too much and at an angle really did bend, straight up though wasn't a problem for 3rd floor. I would suggest spending the money on a better pole if finances allow because of the weight and rigidity.

    Also I'm just about to start mk2 of my pressure sprayer wfp pump and I'll post it when it's finished (website to finish first). Trolley system using 2 pressure sprayers pumped with one handle, holds 18 litres and if my calculations are right taking the combined pressure to 80-100psi. I'm same as you though, looking at a better pole now and seriously looking at the facelift ones if reviews are favourable. Don't skimp on the brush either, Gardiners super lites some swear by but using Tecbuk Ariel once got me hooked on it..

    5m harris pole will give you fully extended approx 18ft reach when working. Not a great reach tbh but would do you for starters for most domestics without extensions or awkward conservatories as is only £15.
