What does a Pole End Cone do? It fits on the smallest diameter pole section of a water fed pole. It is designed to allow the pole hose that is within the pole to exit the pole so that the hose can be attached to the brush head jets by means of a Y connector. (The Y connector, the jets and the brush are normally supplied as one item). It also has a screw thread that allows an angle adapter to be fitted before the brush.
When would I need a Pole End Cone? As poles come with Pole End Cones fitted, you only need one as a replacement.
Tip: Pole End Cones are glued in place. Sometimes through use they can become loose. If the Pole End Cone and the end of the pole is not damaged; then it simply needs to be glued back in place. See below for fitting instructions.
Which size of Pole End Cone do I need? Window Cleaning Stuff stock two sizes. These will fit pole sections with outside diameters of either 22mm or 23.5mm diameter respectively. As the two sizes are close to each other care must be taken in determining the correct size.
What Angle Adapters fit? Unger HiFlo Multilink Angle Adapter FTGOS Code WXU03, and the Streamline Angle Adapters range see Code WXS500.
How do I fit a new Pole End Cone? With the pole flat, extend the top section of the pole. Check the condition of the end of the pole for damage. Carefully trim the pole if required. Check that the new Pole End Cone fits and that it can be pushed fully on to the pole. (The Pole End Cone has an internal location shoulder). Using abrasive paper lightly abrade the top of the pole where the Pole End cone will be located, also lightly abrade the inside of the Pole End Cone to give the adhesive a key. Remove any dust particles. Fit the pole hose through the Pole End Cone. Apply Penloc Adhesive Code WXW95 to the outside of the pole section. Slide the Pole End Cone over the end of the pole while turning the Pole End Cone gently 45 degrees clockwise, then 45 degrees anti-clockwise until the Pole End Cone is fully in place. (Turning the Pole End Cone gently will spread the adhesive).
Tip: Place a cloth or paper under the pole in case of adhesive drips.
