3mm jets in action

Recommended Posts

@CHWS @Trev81

 

Hi guys, did an office today, thought I'd show the 3mm jets on 75 flow, and what its like for rinsing,

 

I'm doing it one handed whilst filming, so excuse the quality... (This is not how I would normally rinse, just showing it for demonstration purposes)

 

Hope it gives you an idea of how they perform.

 

They don't cause any splash back, which means ALL the water falls down the glass, thus, creating a better, more dense rinse. As no water is wasted bouncing off into the air.

 

With 2nm jets, it was firing out so fast, it hit the glass and sprayed all over the shop. That was slowing the rinse, and also would be more prone to spotting, most of the water was bouncing off the glass - not good for a fast rinse.

 

(Shakespeare writing or what by the way!) 'thus' - what a word!

What's that like on phobic??

 

Better than 2mm Dave, still beads, but a nice thick flow helps it rinse better

You just buy the 3mm jets mate, gardiner pole systems sell them,

 

I just rinse very quickly across the glass maybe 3-4 times max, with the flow of these jets, it creates a 'waterfall' effect, so you don't need to rinse for long at all,

 

A much larger volume of water is falling down the glass, so you spend less time doing the rinse, and also (in my opinion) save water...

Yep. Using more water saves water! And time!

Me too! Just quicker. Also more confident leaving a window when it's had more water poured over it. More is less.

Ok so you've just motivated me to finally get out the 3mm jets I odered a couple of moons ago and put them in my Gardiner bush, any tips on how to remove the 2mm ones? Cheers

Do you have any other brushes with 2mm jets?

 

What I would like to know is the water difference between 2 and 3mm

 

So fire 2mm jets into bucket for a minute. Then do the same with 3mm. Then report back with difference :)

 

I tired 3mm but didn't like it.

Pliers mate

Cheers @Jake , I've pulled and pulled till I can't pull no more and they still won't budge LOL so I've just popped the 3mm's into the holes next to where the 2mm's are located! I don't think the 1ish cm difference should make a difference to the rinse??

I'd guess it'd be the same Damo, but it's more about the type of flow I prefer, much less splash back,

 

I'll

Never go back to 2mm that's for sure...
