not happy with aqua tap....... help


Recommended Posts

I used my new aqua tap today, easy to fit. First impressions great, then I used it on real work. I use the gardiner light sill brush. I did not need to press against the window to turn off or on, a quick flick of the wrist would do the job of turning it on or off, and thats the problem, unless you work slowly and carefully it would turn off with any sudden movement of the pole. Also when the pole is against the glass you need to apply a permanent right twist to keep the flow on.

Am I doing something wrong.

Any one else had this experience

Nightmare!!! Hope you get them sorted, is it made by aquadapter?


When i saw the youtube footage of the aquatap i gotta admit i knew it weren't for me, i know the AD has its faults but i just cant see another way of doing it now, been using one for 18months now and just love em

You should be telling peter fogwill also your issues with his product surely?

Before you start messing with it see what he can do first as must be under some sort of guarantee.


This is an interesting vid before you go stripping it down to see what's inside

yes m8 i have the aquadapter v-lite my view is the aquatap is beta on my big pole as u can keep boath hands on the pole at all times idel when wrking at hight the aquadapter will b a pain haveing to tug the hose with a 47ft pole in 1 hand not good for ur rist i think,but having said that when i titen my tap up i think it will b easer to use than the aquadapter as its still a bit of a pain tuging the hose with a 22ft pole

Mad innit how we all have preferences lol


I just wash my AD every couple of days with pure and once a month i unscrew it and soak it in hot soapy water then rinse with pure, so have little to zero issues with mine, if it starts to need the dreaded tug tug tug tug, then get a spare brush and scrub with pure.

But i would like a go with the A tap
