Yep i clean them once a week in summer and give them a rinse everyday in winter, you got the slx didnt you? Much less maintenance needed on the slx compared to a facelift

Never & it's still going strong 9 months later.

Though I do try to wipe through the pole hose at end of the shift.

I think I've cleaned my old hybred once or twice in the last 5 years and that was probably once too often.:D

I clean mine if it gets grit in it. Forget where, but it picked up a load of grit off the hose last week and ripped the stop tape to shreds and the tape started to clog up the pole, making it a ball ache to use. I pulled the sections apart and got rid of the stop tape altogether.

I always reel in with the hose running through a cloth.

Yes that's what i mean, we had some rainy days this week and my sections got grit and mud on them too, i can just feel it's not as smooth to extend/close the sections.

Also my brush collected so much spider web, i think i'm gonna have to soak it in warm water.
