Minimizing drips from top frame


Recommended Posts

I have found especially since I have had an aqua dapter I can minimize the dripping from top frame. I am sure many do this but for those that don't it works for me.


Once you have cleaned all frame stop water flow either with your tap or just kinck the hose, shake excess water off brush then run over top frame, shake water off and run over again down to where the frame meets window. Then rinse window as you normally would I find I do this on most windows now and often do this instead of doing all frames then going back to first window after it has stopped dripping. Not had any trouble or marks from doing this.

I've had enough of my aqua-dapter tbh, in the cold weather we've been getting here the top pipe gets so cold that when you pull it the pipe just disconnects from my pole, it's really annoying me lately, might just go back to the valve option.

Sorry I missed this, but James did pm me and we've discussed the cause and possible solutions. James' Aqua-dapter didn't come from us, and wasn't supplied with our hose, which is made not to pull out.


One solution you might like to try if it's happening to you Gav is a Tube Strengthening Insert. These are recommended when using hot water with the orange hose, but also provide a more secure fit with cold water.


The other thing to consider if it has happened a few times is whether the teeth in the push-fit have become damaged, so a new connector might help.


Our newest hose is stiffer so less likely to collapse in the push-fit too.

Ok I am using orange hose not changed the length of loop so same as when first got it. I use cold water only and atm it is not that warm anyway so pretty cool temp. Happened to me twice last week then prob about once 3 weeks before. So not all the time.
