Just get a telescopic high pressure lance or watch an Ashley Mackintosh video

Don't waste your time or reputation. Its what amateurs do who have no clue about water volume & pressure.

Water fed poles aren't designed to handle ridiculous strains and nor are the jets. 

 

You've stumbled upon a cowboy act and it's best to forget you ever saw it 

Hi Austin there is a couple of firms that make theses conversions of wfp they are very good at lower pressure pressure washing , I don’t have one myself but when time allows I will be making my own think they could be a very used tool , they use proper pressure washing jets and high pressure hose and are safe .

Looks like a turbo nozzle on the end of a wfp, not sure if its legal?

How could it be illegal??

Against the manufacturers instructions. You allow an employee to use it and they get hurt then they sue the employer!

We all use things that have been altered or modified, theses lances use approved and pressure rated hose , triggers and jets it’s just fitted inside a wfp in stead of the alloy or fibreglass pressure washing telescopic poles

I learned alot about industrial law when I did the gas course. In the event of an accident, their lawyers will impound their training records. My brother just completed a one day tower scaffold training course. He couldn't believe all the things he didn't know about. If a hire company delivers a scaffold without the manufacturers instructions then you have to send it back. Manufactures instructions is like the bible for lawyers when they are chasing a claim.

I wouldn't even try a telescopic pressure washing lance, the 18 or 24 ft, both very heavy and hard to control. 

I have the 35ft wfp conversion kit from AC pressure washers. Great bit of kit. 👍 They also do a 55ft kit as well.
