Gardiners 100° fan jets

Recommended Posts

Just ordered some and i use currently 4 pencil jets in an extreme brush as i love the way it rinses using the swivel without actually rinsing

Anyone using them who can tell me what is the lowest setting they can use on their controller and still get a good rinse

I always rinse on the glass with the swivel

Currently i am using a grippatank 6lpm pump which is i believe the same as the gardiners one

Hopefully i can get a good flow without having to have it on 50 as i do now as i use a trolley and can cane the water if not carefull

Not related to the fan jets but interested in the 4 pencil setup, is more water used as opposed to 2?

Yes as 25 on my controller will give an ok flow through 2 jets but the flow is halved once you add a second set so you have to whack the flow up to get it out of all four at more than a dribble

If you change the jets to 4 x 1.4mm then you will use the same amount of water at the same flow as you do with 2 x 2mm jets

The 4 jets, on 45 & 35cm brushes, are really only beneficial on jobs where you have a lot of big windows and straight angles to clean them.

Been using the black fans now for a month and I love them. 

 

They are noisy compared to the reds so if you are switching from pencils prepare for a shock. A handful of my customers have commented on it but not in a negative way. I don’t mind it.

 

Performance wise, I have found them really good. They work much better in my view than the reds, and at a much lower flow rate. However, my preference is to run them at full flow using my 5lpm 70psi pump. I’m working a little faster and using noticeably less water than with the reds.
