I bought one of the morrisons rolston ones that was on offer a few weeks back for 8 quid...worst 8 quid I've spent as it just bends and you cant put any pressure on the squeegee...so you have streaky windows.
I picked one of these yesterday and I know it's a fiver more....but its loads stronger and if you have a hose nearby it connects and makes the job better still

I don't gave a hose so have not used it that way..what impressed me was the sturdiness of it when extended. I could add the pressure needed

You should be able stop the leaking with a bit of PTFE tape

Great idea but for so many people, the PTFE tape would need to come with a bag of common sense! Mind you, that would not work as they would need a dose of common sense to realise that PTFE tape would resolve the leaks.
I have one, the windows look worse,

Most people won't know what PTFE tape is.

how is that possible
B&Q have a hose fed brush... Is that any better or worse than this? Anyone with any experience?
Been in some stores for about 4 weeks might be lucky to find any left now.

Plumbers Tape For Everything isn't it
Unless you get very good the finish will be garbage, and even then you'll still probably leave a bunch of marks since the head does not swivel. There is also a reason window cleaners use deionised water.......
Mine has left awful results. Quite difficult to manoeuvre and the hose did leak out of every joint. Will try again but not holding out to much hope.

Most window cleaners who use a long reach system fill the tank in the van with tap water from home....I had one as a neighbour and the last thing he would use would be costly deionised water...

No way lol. Most use deionised water. You can't use straight tap water and allow it to dry on a window because it is full of dissolved minerals and other salts that hang around when the water has evaporated. I know because I often used deionised water when I wash my cars, best thing in the summer when it'll dry off fast and normal tap water from most areas would leave spots.

In this case the idea is to soap the window up and squeegee it off, which you'll only do really well with an awful lot of practice. It'll be a poor job compared to a decent window cleaner but better than nothing I guess.

All I can say is I used to walk across the hosepipe coming from his house to the van every day...and yes he was fulltime and had 3 workers with Van's do the very same.

Well he could either be pumping from a tank somewhere or probably just had a deionisation system built into the van. They don't just use tap water, it makes a real mess especially if you have particularly hard water.

Anything fed from your garden hose will leave terrible results
MR112317/09/2019 14:55

how is that possible


Streaky water marks, to much messing , I ended up soaked as Well as Windows ha. I will try again without hose, or I might just stick to hanging out my upstairs Windows with my window vaccum to clean them much easier.

Just use the washing up dish to dip it in....it fits well. Oh and don't forget to use deionised water
wouldn't recommend these, plastic fittings all crack, water leaks everywhere , only thing extendable pole has been useful for was using it with a paint roller to reach high ceilings/walls

Well mine fine.. a lot better then the rolson one I flung... and as for the leaks,I don't own a hosepipe.

Sticking my head out the window to reach and buckets of water lol

Definitely easier
I've just used this with a hosepipe. Yes it leaks if you don't set it up right. I used Ferrox Jointing Compound on the male threads. Hand-tightened and no leaks. This is at full extension reaching the upstairs windows with aid of a ladder. Great deal!
