Just wanted to put a word out there for anyone using the tucker rinse bar, which is a great product, but scratched up a lot of windows on a particular job.
I’ve attached it to a WWWCS (Australian Company) brush which has a swivel adaptor, the pole I was using at the time was particularly heavy (Streamline Glass Fibre), this allowed the brush to angle in, which I thought was great for cleaning inside the frames.
Unfortunately, it also allowed the rinse bar to touch the glass and permanently scratch it quite badly.
I came clean straight away with the client and didn’t charge him for the job, even though he insisted to still pay for it and was very lenient about the scratches - for which I was grateful.
I love the rinse bar, and should have known that it would have scratched the glass with the brush angled like that, but realized too late, newbie error. I’ve placed generous amounts of gaffer tape around the edge of the rinse bar now to prevent any future accidents from happening.
Hoping this post spares anyone else from making the same foolish mistake.
