Cleaning with just Pure Water? Absolutely!

What comes with the Unger HiFlo nLite Rectangular Brush?
The Unger HiFlo nLite Rectangular Brush is a complete brush for Pure Water window cleaning, and it comes with the following parts included:
Unger Brush Socket
Attached to the block with two screws, the Unger brush socket allows you to attach your brush to a Euro thread and use with a waterpole for Pure Water cleaning.
Unger Pencil Jets (one pair)
Pencil jets are the standard type of jet for window cleaning. They feature a single round hole for a single stream of water at light pressure. Pencil jets are great for cleaning most windows.
If you are having trouble rinsing because the water is beading up, try slower passes or fan jets. See “What’s Hydrophobic Glass?” below for more information.
Unger HiFlo nLite Hose Brush Connection Kit
This is a t-fitting with two short sections of hose to connect two brush jets to the main hose on a waterpole. If you want to add a second set of jets, make sure to get TWO more hose brush connection kits. You’ll need three total to hook up four jets and then connect them all together to attach to the main waterpole hose.
For replacement parts, see the related items below.
Why is the brush important for Pure Water cleaning?
The brush is the main pint of contact between you and the window. The bristles scrub the dirt off before the Pure Water can rinse it away. You want bristles that can splay out over the window for good cleaning coverage. Different shapes of brush or types of bristles can make a difference on how the brush cleans. See the related items below for other brush options.
What type of waterpole is best for this brush?
The waterpole you choose will depend more on the heights you need to work and your budget. The longer the waterpole, the higher grade material you’ll need, to make sure the waterpole is light enough and rigid enough to work at those higher heights. From lowest working height to highest, the Unger HiFlo nLite waterpoles that would work best for you are listed below:
- 0-30 feet: Aluminum
- 0-33 feet: Hybrid
- 30-55 feet: Carbonfiber
- 55-66 feet: High modulus carbonfiber
Each of these watepole options are listed below in the related items. There are also waterpole kits (including the waterpole, brush, hose, gooseneck, and the necessary connectors) available as well as complete systems with a Pure Water system and a waterpole together.
What’s Hydrophobic Glass?
Most windows create a nice sheeting action during rinsing. This allows for a thorough cleaning of the glass surface, leaving no spots behind.
Sometimes, windows don’t rinse as easily, the water beads and doesn’t rinse as completely. These windows are referred to as hydrophobic. To combat hydrophobic glass, you can use fan jets or slower passes while rinsing. The fan jets atomize the water into a fine, wide spray, covering more area with a lighter spray to beat the window’s tendency to bead up. This will leave even hydrophobic windows spot free once they dry.
Only available in 11 inch.
