Water tubing connection under not over top brush

Less likely to snag or hook onto things like branches.
More free movement of the brush as well.

When doing higher level windows with the usual up and down motion do the connecters and hose not keep catching on sills etc.

Have had no problems with what we use, although we scrub sideways most of the time.

I get you. Those sorts of movements are ok on downstairs windows and the occasional hard to get to stuff over connies etc but even with a swivel are far too labour intensive. Best to let your body weight do the work using a rocking motion goin back and forth and up and down if you get me.

Ok if that works for you .

Sort of get over pushing/lifting a broom/ brush up/down all day.

This seems more labour intensive.

Better to let the weight of the pole and your body weight do most of the work. This cannot be done holding the pole at an angle and working side to side. That’s the laws of physics and nothing to do with personal preference.

Yes under stand what you saying.

Well it can be done holding at angle working side to side.

Providing you have the correct swivel movement at the scrubber/brush.

When get time make a video show you how it done bit higher then ground floor.

I’ll give you 10/10 for trying but it looks like your doing more up/downs in that vid than side to side. I just feel the whole tubing underneath and side to side method is a little flawed for how most people work. If it was that good all the leading pole manufacturers would be designing their poles to be used that way. Keep up the good work though as you do have some good ideas. Just not with this one.

We also have handles on the outside which would cause havoc with tubes below brush.
