    I don't think it's matters too much which brush you use, I just cleaned some using my facelift brush, worked a treat, they'll all do a similar job, I prefer a stiffer bristle as you can't get much pressure on solar panels, so the stiffer brushes tend to clean better... image.jpg

    I'd go pencil jets mate,

    Because they will create more of a downward water run off than fan jets...

    I would definitely go for the 4 jet option. Either fan or pencil would work well. Some prefer the fanjets for solar panels due to not being able to lift off to rinse as they create a wider water curtain.
