rinse bars are they worthwhile?

Hi folks

Just thinking about buying a rinse bar. Wanted to get your opinions on them. Are they worthwhile? Do they save time? Are they more effective on Hydrophibic glass? What are the best ones?

50 & 100 degree fan jets are good on hydrophobic glass fan jets spray the full width of a brush and then some with 100's

We found them useful on some of our higher jobs, over 4 floors, where you could rinse on. However since the new lightweight Tapertec brushes it is now in the bucket with all the other "I'll keep just in case" bits

I found the plastic jet nozzles get 'damaged' from the work piece @Crystalalan and I'm continually having to re-align or open the jets with a sharp pointed round object. I actually use the point of my current tester which pushes into the wire's insulation to test the wire for power.

I found it does rinse nicely when the stream of water from each jet comes our straight. But when the stream doesn't then its a waste of time.

As per @Part Timer, pencil jets work better. In fact, I would like 4 x 1.4mm pencil jets in a standard brush. I do have fan jets in the stiff brush I swap to occasionally but I prefer pencils as they give a better rinse, even on hydrophobic glass.  

Would I buy another; no TBH.
