    Find these a pain as the angle reduces the speed of the water flowing off when you rinse leaving bits of what looks like grit without having to spend ages rinsing anyone have this problem?

    yep drives me made, i have fan jets so helps a little and i find if i direct the brush back a bit so so the flow is in the direction of the window it helps but still not perfect.

    The only thing I find I'd to remove my brush after cleaning the window and attach a squeegee to it, but not a great redemedy.

    I dont really find them a problem?. If they are particularly 'gritty', i will do the pane up and down as normal, then side to side moving slowly down the pane, then, if necessary, a final rinse.

    Absolute ***htmare. Takes a lot of time and water :/

    Just have to keep at a steady pace and stay determined lol. I once had 8 conservatory roofs to clean in one day. Didn't want to see another conservatory roof until a month after I completed them!

    if theres an out side tap i attach my pole to it first & the extra pressure does the job otherwise its just perseverance for cons, for velux i send a sheet of water down ,nip the hose ,brush it down then rinse
