    Hi all. I currently use a trigger valve and find it really good for controlling water usage as it's just simple "squeeze for on, release for off", and if there's the odd bit off dirt on the glass I can give it a quick squirt without wasting much water.

    My question is what are the benefits of using the univalve apart from no more hose loops?

    I started with triggers years ago and switched to taps, loathed triggers, went from taps to UniValve.

    I have 3 poles all with univalve and can honestly say it is the product of the year for the WFP industry.

    For £20 if you dont like it you aren't going to be hurting too badly are you?

    I'm 100% residential and found the trigger (cleantec trigger) really good. I got used to the dreaded loop of hose and it didn't bother me that much. That is until I tried the univalve. It beats the trigger for me hands down. Not having that extra hose at your feet is a major improvement.

    How come you loathed the triggers?

    That's a good price! What site is that on?

    So was it the loop issue that made you make the change? Have you noticed any difference in water usage?
    My only worry is that I won't be able to turn the water on and off as quickly as a trigger.
    Thanks

    Trigers are large bulky and heavy. Why by light poles just to strap a brick on the end?
