The one piece of hardware that got overwhelmingly good reviews (the “Wash-iT”) wasn’t built by Future of Cleaning. It was built by IPC, and badged as a FoC product for marketing reasons. As I understand it, when public opinion of RI/FoC soured, the decision was made to rebrand the system to XeroPure.
I’m guessing (but don’t know) that the Xero poles are also an IPC product. At the very least, the clamps are quite obviously different. That, along with being shipped with a decent brush, are what presumably set the pole apart.
Many of the carbon fiber tubes are made in the same Chinese factories. It’s up to the pole manufacturer on what lengths, diameters, and compositions they select when they construct their poles.
