I just made a cool discovery! Check out the photos I have attached. I put some velcro on the bottom of my 18" Sorbo channel, and then put a wagtail whirlwind pad over the top of the squeegee. Now I can wet the window, and then flip back the pad and squeegee the window. This is going to save some serious time when I have to use a pole on storefronts. I won’t have to switch back and forth between tools. Also, if I use the “7” technique when poling, I wont need to detail afterwards… just remove water from sill and go to next one. I timed myself today, and it took about 20-30 seconds per window pane on the exterior with a pole.
You can also use it at ground level by wetting, flipping and fanning. But I may be just as fast with a scrubber in left hand and squeegee in right.
Now, I’m going to do the same thing with my 24" Sorbo. I have discovered that you can buy 24" whirlwind pads.
After my velcro peeled off the Sorbo channel, I was looking around and discovered the plastic tabs that came with my original wagtail channel that have velcro on them. With a little effort, I was able to get the plastic pieces to fit over my Sorbo channel. Now, I’m back in business. I hope the plastic doesn’t crack or split, because I love this tool! The only problem is finding a great way to attach the whirlwind pad to it.
